Please Help! AX15 reinstall have 3/4" to go. What do I do?
Hey there. I got my ax15 rebuilt and now I am reinstalling it. I am at the point where I have about an inch to go and the tranny won't go in any further. I have spent hours on this and I can't figure it out. I have tried different angles, I have one bolt per side for alignment. They both don't have any pressure on them but should they? I used the alignment tool for the new clutch and everything appears to be lining up correcty. Any tips for getting past this frustrating point in my reinstallation? Thank You very much fellow Jeeper!
If you only have 3/4" to go you are definitely into the splines of the clutch disc. You might want to pull the trans. and double check your alignment. I had a bad plastic alignment tool and had the same problem it would not let the input shaft slip into the pilot bearing. If alignment still looks o.k. make sure the pilot bearing fits over the input shaft. Maybe the wrong pilot bearing? I have also had wire looms and dowel pins get in the way as well. Just don't get to forceful it isn't to difficult to damage the clutch disc.
If clutch disc is aligned and the pilot is correct/installed right, just need to wiggle and kick. Just did this on a buddy's YJ. It should go.
Hey everyone thanks for the advice! We removed the trans got it realigned with more grease and a little bit of shoving and it went right in. We had the jeep running for the first time in 48 days and it was perfect except for two things. When taking off in 1st gear there is a rattle sound that goes off like 4 times in a second then it's quiet. Also the clutch feels way too soft. It still engages and disengages fine but it is only like 15% of the pressure it used to be. Any suggestions?
