CJ7 manual transmission inspection

Hi guys, I just got a CJ7 with a T5 that is unable to drive in reverse. I want to inspect it to see exactly what's going on and it's condition. Is it possible for to remove the transmission cover without removing the transmission from the jeep? I've already removed the offset lever and it appears that there is something preventing the transmission cover from removal.

Sorry, gotta remove the tranny

If you don't have time to do it right, how will you ever find time to do it again?

Well, the list is long! Anyway, some time ago I posted a link to the T5 rebuild manual. I'll search for it later
when I get the chance if you haven't found it first. If you search my posts w my username, you'll
find plenty of T5 info. I've probably rebuilt no fewer than a few hundred. While it's out, I always recommend
a good hard look at the clutch, throwout bearing, flywheel and pilot bushing condition. Also check for
excessive clutch fork wear. You know, all the stuff you don't want to go back in for.

I always suggest a new STEEL input bearing retainer at rebuild.

Many wars have been waged over the proper oil. I use Penzoil or GM synchromesh.

If you don't have time to do it right, how will you ever find time to do it again?

Thanks a million! I already downloaded the T5 rebuild manual actually . I'm thinking that maybe swapping the tranny with another working T5 may save me the headache because I don't have all of the resources required for a rebuild.

That is a road block for many and probably a good idea if you don't have much experience with them. Good luck

Oh I spoke too soon, the rebuild manual in your link is one I do NOT have, yours looks far more definitive. Thanks again!
