REASSEMBLY - FRONT-SECTION
Insert countershaft support tool or blocking in rear bearing bore.
Install the right countershaft bearings in the same manner described in Part D for left coun- tershaft bearings.
Move the reverse gear to the rear on mainshaft and use a screwdriver to engage sliding clutches with all forward speed gears. A sliding clutch that will not engage with a gear indicates the gear set is not in proper mesh. The bearings of the right countershaft would then need to be removed and the drive gear set retimed. NOTE: Do not engage sliding clutches with more than one gear at the same time. This will lock the gearing and prevent the mainshaft and countershaft assemblies from rotating.
Reassembly and Installation of Left Reverse Idler Gear Assembly NOTE: Since the left and right reverse idler gear assemblies are identical, reassembly and installa- tion of the left reverse idler gear assembly should be performed at this time as described in Part A of this section.
4. With bearing installation complete, install the snap ring in groove at rear of right countershaft.
