Is the input shaft from your old AX15 and the new AX15 different in size (length/diameter)? If so, I believe you can swap out the input shafts.

Yeah, but is the length the same as your old one? When i was doing mine, i remember reading something about different length shafts and possibly having to swap the shaft. I read it somewhere in this forum. I've been searching for this info for you but i haven't found it. Measure the length of both the old shaft and your new one so you can know for sure the shaft is too long or what. Just got aliminate any possible problems. You'll figure it out, just han in there.

Not without completely disassembling the transmission.

Mean Max....glad to see you chiming in! I was going to refer Silver to you. I've gained a lot of knowledge from your posts over the years. Silver, I was going to offer up coming out to help you this weekend, but my wife would kill me. We're heading out of town in a few minutes for a few days.

Well, I think you have one of two possible issues.

1) Clutch not aligned properly.

2) Pilot bushing (should be a National/Timken part #PB77 or #PB77HD) may have some damage from installation, preventing the input shaft from sliding into the bushing. They're easily damaged.

Do you have the correct alignment tool?
