TF-999 Leaking from Shift/Kick Down

Well, I was going to change out the gasket/filter today (TF-999) since I did see a leak around the gasket. Upon further investigation I looked w/a flash light and I am seeing where the shift lever/kick down lever is mounted, the gasket is leaking. SO this is where my leak is coming from, nice bright red fluid.


Question: do I have to drain the pan to fix this, or can I just pull the levers. I'm thinking it is like a through bolt and needing to pull the pan to replace the gasket/ring for these levers.

I did come across the manual below but it really doesn't go into detail about this (unless I didn't see it). Looking at the picture, it looks like if things are unbolted from the top side it should slide out but I'm not sure if the GASKET is just on the top side or is there one on the inside as well.

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks,
Jim

Oh, about 6 yrs. Shifts well through out the gears (has a shift kit in it). I haven't had it on the road yet, still finishing up the build.

PM me your email address and I'll send you the parts manual. I believe there's an o-ring in there.

It shows the seal for the "main valve lever" with an arrow from the top on an exploded view. I'll have to check it out to see if it actually comes from the top or from under inside the pan. To me and looking at diagrams like these, it should come from the top.

Thanks again,
Jim

Part # J812 6794

Page 1026

#17 on the exploded diagram.

Here is what a friend of mine set me from Fla. I don't quite undertand the whole taking apart thing, and he owns a tranny shop.

Quote:
to remove and install seal without valve body removal :click:




i know you do not want to spend the $

with v/b removal



remove 10 bolts using a 7/16" socket


1-2 accumulator & park rod


park rod
must turn d/s to engage park and remove park rod with v/b from extension housing or fight with e-clip at v/b side not shown
(do not remove extension housing)








use screw driver and knock seal out from pan side.
use a small slide hammer with washers to install seal if no room.

I replaced that oil seal...you don't have to take apart the tranny to do it. It comes out from the top. After removing the linkage, I just used a screwdriver to pry it out, then used a socket to seat the new one. The seal itself cost 3.95 at Advantage Auto. It took me loger to get the linkage on and of than to replace the seal.

OK thanks,

You must have pryed it out from around the stem of where the linkage attaches.

Thanks,
I'll try it.

Go buy the new seal to see what it looks like. There is a lip around the outside edge. If you can't get it out that way, you have to remove the valve body and push it out from the inside. You might be able to get to it with a small screwdriver, or punch without removing the valve, it's been a while, I can't remember if that shaft is attached to the valve body, or next to it.

You may b able to pull it from the top. Would need a tool with a hook on end to pull it. If not you have to drop the valve body and push it out from the bottom like the pictures show above. Good Luck!

Here is a link to the site where I found the TF999 parts manual, also added my CJ FSM just for good measure:

Thanks all, I'm going to get a seal and look @ it. I'll have to get the tool (maybe AZone rents them) and I'll do a write up.

We will see.

Thank you all again,
Jim

Well I picked up the seal from NAPA, and hopefully I can get to it next week. Real busy weekend coming up.







I'll try to post up some pics of the install if I can get my camera up in there.

Thanks for all the help so far,
Jim
