  1. A few of us will swing by to check it out...hope to see some local 02 fellas out there. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  2. Well guys, couldn't take the output flange nut out for the intended swap in the car. Instead, a swap tranny was the only option because I had the "oh shit" moment[emoji31]. See image. A replacement tranny is in now thanks to a help from an good friend. At the same time, a new flex bushing with a replacement driveline was installed. Now just need to break it in. Happy Driving to all! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  3. Somehow it feels like its seized up pretty good. With locktite, with enough force it should break free. So, I took out the breaker bars tonight. One pin against the subframe at the fan clutch end, put tranny in gear to lock in place. Used one breaker bar at the flange end to subdue the nut, still no budge with foot action. Will need leverage with extension pipe, which will be my next step before bringing out the "fire" [emoji16]...or leave the flange on until a tranny swap.

  4. Holy crap. I thought mine was bad...[emoji44] the loose bolts tore up the flange ears and areas next to the flange. I'm working on to replace my driveline, output flange and put new bushing. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  5. Progress made...Thanks for the tips. BTW I started grinding my socket, but gave up because the wall was too thick.[emoji29] I removed the shims from the output flange nut from my spare tranny and the tranny on the car. The 30mm deep socket worked like a charm for the spare tranny. However I was not so lucky on the flange nut that is on the tranny that is still in the car. It appeared the nut is pretty sealed. A sign of silicone gasket on the nut thread. Impact gun didn't help. Locked the tranny in gear and used impact drive...no budge... manually with breaker bar... tranny flange rotates. Penetrating oil 24 hr..impact driver... still no budge. May have to break out the torch[emoji91] [emoji848] The attached photos are from spare tranny. I just need to pull the flange to replace the one in the car. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  6. @hallboyles...thanks for the image. That provides good clarity. Will give this a try tonight. @s99...that was my next option. Grind down enough without compromising the socket wall. Thanks guys[emoji106] Will let you guys know. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  7. Hi fellas... I've been trying to source out the correct socket size to remove the transmission output flange nut. I've measured the nut and recessed gap and came up with roughly 1.50" / 38mm for a socket outside diameter. Is this about right? I've acquired a thin wall socket of 30mm with outside diameter of 1.56"/39.6mm and would not fit between the recessed gap. The deep impact socket fit check, but no go. The other option was to grind down the outside diameter to fit. Is this the approach some of you have done? Any insight is appreciated. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks for the feedback. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  9. I noticed there is a strap on that guilbo bushing on your picture. On my previous install the guilbo bushing came with a steel band around it, but I removed it. Does it require the strap? I have a new bushing for a replacement and was going to leave the steel strap on it this time. The manual does not specify the requirement either. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  10. Trying to get info on this event. The links sent me to a Harness Bar and C-Pillar discussion thread. [emoji848] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  11. Ground and battery terminal connectors too. My car had the similar symptoms...diming light, intermittent and hesitation start. I changed out starter, swap with high current alternator but with little improvement. I I decided to change out the battery terminals and cables and chased all the ground wires. Till today, no start hesitation.[emoji1696] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  12. I run a 44" Yakima fairing and 48" Yakima round bar. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  13. I still have the separator tank on my '70 and routing the fume line to the carb. The fume in the cabin is now from the exhaust leak at the mid-pipe to down-pipe flange. [emoji53] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  14. Cool. Didn't realized it but my son got me one for Father's Day and still in the tin box[emoji4]. Maybe will strut it out at the next group drive or 02 meet. It "kinda" look like my '70.[emoji1787] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  15. With the nice, a few of us did a short road trip to Chico, CA to Sirrra Nevada Brewery and met up with some Japanese Vintage fellas for a show and cruise. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
