Crack in transmission

Postby TPhilly » Sat Jan 21, 2017 11:47 pm

I was about to disconnect this shift lever torque rod, and noticed this crack that I circled in this image (it's a bit messy, but that's not what I'm worried about here):

Is there any way I can fix this without replacing (at least) the entire transmission housing? Other than welding it? I didn't remove the rod because I was worried I'd break it in some way I can't fix right now. I can see that it's bolted to that broken piece, but I'm guessing it's got at least a couple bolts attaching it to the transmission or it would just be hanging there.

Or could I just leave this as is?

Replace it, it's cheap.

Case needs replaced, likely no fluid in the trans.

With the case replacement you will need to shim the diff and mainshaft, so not a drop in swap.

If that an HF car?

Your location, I'm in Cincinnati, OH.

It's a DX. So you think it's not just the mounting surface for that rod that's cracked, that it's cracked through and that's what's causing all that crud? I guess I could find out for sure if I added some fluid. Also I guess I don't understand why it couldn't just be a drop in replacement.

Sorry if I'm asking silly questions, this is all mostly new to me. And I'm in central Arkansas.

oil leak attracting the dust and grit IMHO.

You could drop in another rebuilt trans, or fix your case issue and do a normal go through while the guts are swapped into another case.

Being a 35mm DX case I should have a few extra laying around. On these 88-91 cases the shifter forks are no longer available, hence why I have been robbing them from perfectly good DX and HF cases.

I think I have 10-12 cases laying around with missing shifter fork assemblies because of this.

So if I swap everything into another case, which cases will work? Just 88-91 DX? Or all 88-91 CRX? What about a case from a regular Civic?

I don't really see this happening any time soon, but still would like to know what to be looking for.

PL3-A000 or PL3-A100 case, DX/LX/EX/HF, not Si.

PS: I'm the person who cracked the case code over 15 years ago.
