ok man heres my situation i have never touched a tranny before i am 16 and no absolutly nothing about trannys but from this write up im gonna try to rebuild my ax5 from my jeep yj 1990 wut do yall think of this or am i just crazy
one day i decided to replace my P/S fluid. Got the Haynes, not much help. searched the forum, found a BRIEF write-up. got my spanners, hoses, clamps and stuff. i can tell you i got P/S fluid in my ***, eyes, mouth, nose, and throughout the garage. i then discovered i can swear for half an hour without repeating myself.
point is: write-ups should just give you a hint of the task.. there's a lot i didn't write here. like about the whole day I spent under the jeep prior to touching the first screw, just to get acquainted with everything down there

One other option guys to save your self time and money is to drop the tranny yourself take it to the shop and have them rebuild it. Then install it yourself. Saves you the cost of the install. I've done this with a few different vehicles. There was a place nearby me that rebuilt my 3 speed from my 72 Chevy C10 for 150 bucks.

Sorry for bumping an old thread but im in the process of building an ax5. Just traveled a few hours last night to buy an ax5 for a pretty good deal and I was wondering what I would need to build this trans. Ive never built a trans before but I have a buddy that is more mechanically inclined that is gonna help out. I bought it out of a tj which I dont think is going to matter much because an ax5 is an ax5 no matter what. So what should I buy for this trans because Ive never driven it yet so I cant tell if all the gears work perfect or what not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Since it's already dropped and you know nothing about it, I'd take it to someone who has experience with this and have them take a look at it. Figure out exactly where you're at before you start spending money.

just did a rebuild on my ax5 out of a 2000 tj and once i got everything back together, with the case off, it shifted good. when i got the case back on it wouldnt move into position except 1st and it was really in neutral.. im almost 100% positive i have each shift sleeve on right and since my tranny was so dirty, i had to remove all rods, balls and springs to clean them all up, but im pretty sure those are correct as i followed the factory service manual and each rod pops in and out great when the case is off..
i had to replace 1st gear with the race bushing and needle bearings and when i pressed everything on, 1st gear seemed to have a little too much play but i went back and put it on the press again and it didnt get any closer..
does anyone know what i did wrong?? maybe with the case on it holds everything together a lot tighter and causing it not to shift? clearance issue? please help
