Post Re: SuperK's '93 ZE - "Bane"
Well, the Transmission, I broke down and took it to a shop. I wasn't gutsy enough to get in the guts of it. If it was a junkyard engine, I wouldn't have a problem. but that is something special. I wish someone locally who knew transmissions could've walked me through it with me, but oh well.


Anyways, I decided on a complete rebuild since I'm in here. Might as well, take it slow and clean her up. So out she comes.

Post Re: SuperK's '93 ZE - "Bane"
Not really much of an update...
I took the transmission to the shop... two months ago, still haven't gotten it back. every time they order a part for it, it's the wrong one... and mazda dealership is outta stock. apparently got a bearing that needs to be replaced and input shaft seal.

Until then, I decided I would like to practice and learn some polishing

:lol: This, is signature worthy!

This is my preferred polishing tool for the tight spaces of a manifold/other shiny toy:

My model is a little different, but the gist of it is a 1/2" belt sander. Mine is electric, and has around 12 variable speeds. The toughest part is trimming belts to fit, since I haven't taken the time to order some 1/2" ones.

It's a life saver though, I just need to get more belts, and then I'll finish up my Straightneck IM. :lol:

Yes, the input shaft seal and a bearing I believe is bad, it leaked trans fluid all over the clutch, so I'm having a shop take care of it. I've never opened a transmission before and since this one is a special gearing/lsd, I don' twant to risk my inexperience goofing something up. I'll practice on a junkyard transmission first.

Post Re: SuperK's '93 ZE - "Bane"
Small update!

after a few months, I finally get my transmission back from the shop. Input shaft needed to be shimmed and new seal in, couple bearings pressed in, and some random screw/spring that was just chillin in the case that musta popped out. Seems to be a reoccuring trend with this car! So, I'm thinking it may be new flywheel and clutch next, thinking of going clutchmasters with both

Post Re: SuperK's '93 ZE - "Bane"
No clue, I had to rush to clean the piston before work so I didn't do any measuring. I'll prolly measure this or next week... First I want to spend some time learning these tools so I know I'm measuring things properly. I'm so noob, I know...
