That's why I was asking about benching it with both on. Sounds to me like the bearings are not seated all the way.

The bearings have to be seated on the shaft so that the bearing retaining snap ring is seated properly in it's groove on the shaft. Sometimes the snap ring may APPEAR properly seated at a glance when it really is not.

If a needle bearing for the clutch shaft fell down when joining it to the cluster gear. would that have the same effect or are those so large that there would be a large gap between the clutch shaft and the cluster gear??

Just thinking. never really dropped one down when assembling and don't know the effect

The retaining rings seemed seated. They were completely in the grooves. Now I can't get the input gear and bearing out of the case. Lol.

To get the input gear out, you need to remove the counter shaft and drop the cluster gear.

Yeah I got it. I did have the counter shaft dropped. I just had to pull the bearing off a little to wiggle it by.

Ok. I've got her back together. I didn't find anything wrong and I rechecked my tolerances. I also spent extra time to ensure the bearings are seated. Now with the cone and tc adapter both on, it spins very free in neutral. If I grab the input and output and turn them separate directions I feel some resistance but I am able to hold it. Is this correct?

sounds good to me. Did you try shifting into all the gears to check for turning resistance resistance on the input shaft? IIRC, they should all feel about the same.

I have not but I will put the shifter in and try. I was shifting it by hand earlier. I hope it's right.

Okay. I finally got back to it. The tension on the input shaft remains the same in all gears on the bench. So, if this is correct, I'm going to button her up and put her back in. (Fingers crossed)

Ok. Same issue came back. If I try to turn the rear yoke on the tc in neutral it is difficult to turn. The transmission and trans turn fine out of the jeep by hand. I just bolted them both back in the jeep. Now it seems its binding. What gives? Any input would be appreciated.

Oh, by the way I did nothin to the tc. It was the original one in the jeep and it was working fine with the t5 tranny.

Are there shims that go between tc and adapter?
