You didn't happen to get your spare off ebay did you.
I sold one to a guy in LA.

No sir the spare belongs to LSUTiger, he broke the tail shaft on it about 6 months ago. He is using a spare that came with his jeep that was in his shed.

I wanted to keep the T176 I sold as a spare but I currently dont have the room in the garage for it.
And I just had mine rebuilt.

In the process of replacing my 258 with a 360 to attach it to.

I did get the spare of of ebay about 4 years ago. I'm not sure where it came from. I think I paid like $200 with the bellhouse but told the seller to keep the bellhouse and chage less for shipping.

Flip the thrust washer in this photo 180 degrees so the tab fits in the upper slot in the case. The other side should fit in a similar fashion. I am checking my dis-assembly photos to see if I have a shot of the idler before or during removal.

My reverse gear was chewed up about the same amount so I re-used it.

I don't remember what I did as far as the alignment marks on the 3-4 synchro.

I don't have a hub that looks anything like the hub pictures above. I don't think I would have installed it if it was not identical to the hub on the mainshaft.

Hope this helps, it has been almost two years since I tore mine apart

Thats what I ended up having to do but the instructions say "Note that the thrust washers have flats on them. Be sure to install the washers so these flats will face the mainshaft" If I understand the instructions correctly that means that both of the flat spots on both thrust washers have to face towards the main shaft. Both of the thrust washers are the exact same on the rebuilt kit and the orignal ones. If I flip the pictured thrust washer so that the locating tab fits in the upper slot in the case the flat side know longer faces the main shaft.

i've never rebuilt this trans but i've done a few manuals.

as far as the alignment marks go i usually mark the synchros with whiteout or sharpie and try to line them back up on reassembly.

if you cant find the marks i wouldn't worry about it. if the gears are in good shape it should still shift fine. you can assemble the synchro and shift it back and forth manually just to be sure.

looks good so far.

Looked through you build pictures again 243 and you front hub looks like the spare I have and eaglekeepers. Guess I am going to just rebuilt with the hub from the spare to make things easier. I did find a was to narrow the realign point on my hub down to only 3 possibalities. On the inside of the hub I can still see marks from where the 3 old 3rd 4th gear shift plates were installed.

Here is a picture from Eaglekeeper's rebuilt. The pictured thrust washer is the same on that I have a picture of but you can see his tab is installed on the bottom where mine will not fit. I can see if it actually fits in the opening or if it is raised a 1/16 inch from not fitting.

MoC, the tab on my thrust washer fit into the lower slot perfectly. If used the upper slot, there was some play back and forth. I reused my original washers and don't remember if there was any difference in the plastic ones I got in my rebuild kit. The only thing I did reference on the plastic ones were to make sure my bronze washers weren't wore down and they mic'd out identical thickness. I looked at the FSM again and it's not very specific. In all the research I did leading up to my rebuild, I don't remember anyone having this problem.

I went mudding once, and you can't even tell I painted it.

If your T176 is like my T150, there should be a couple of sets of thrust washers. Mine were the same except the flat sides were opposite. Check your other set, or flip them from one side of the gear to the other.

The t176 has 2 sets of thrust washers. The set for the counter shaft gear are round on the outside and the set for the idler gear have a corner cut off. There are 2 in a set and each on in the set is identical to the other one in the set.
