Finally got around to working on the death trap

Postby umop3plsdn3dlus » Thu Feb 16, 2017 7:29 pm

alright got a couple of questions and some updates. First off, finally got around to putting in the new transmission I got from CRXGarage. Its amazing what a coat of paint can do

Image

I guess everyone was right on my last one. Here is the damage I found after taking the trans out.

Image

Image

So heres a question, the new trans doesn't have this piece for the speedo cable.

Image

Can I remove it from the old one(this pic)? If so, How? is it simply unthreaded? Or do I even need it and im just not smart enough to reinstall the speedo cable? I'm sure its a combination of both, cause on the old trans I'm not even sure I understand how it supposed to go. Is it simply a pressure fit?

Anyway, said whatever I REALLY want to take it for a test drive, so I loaded up and back out into the street, tried to shift into first, then this happened.

Image

snapped it right off, BECAUSE I'm impatient and didn't bother to replace the shift linkage bushing. So when I went to shift it didn't line up, and the weakest link was the shifter I guess cause that's what gave.

So, with that being said, is this what I need?

Give me some advice here on a new shifter and bushings. Not wanted to be too expensive cause this is the toy car. Just let me know your opinions, thanks.

how the heck did that break off that easily just because you didn't change to a new shifter bushing?

There's one bolt in the cable drive for the speedometer cable. You're not seeing it because it's covered in dirt. Some people mistakenly refer to these as the VSS or vehicle speed sensor.
In reality the VSS is on the back of your speedometer and the cable just drives that VSS.

And yes you can swap that cable drive to the new transmission. All D series cable drives are the same

Seriously, how the hell do I get this thing out. I cant find anything on the forums about cable drive or speedo cable receptacle thingy. All I see is how to install the cable.

It just spins, so do I need some kind of specialty tool or something?

I am super annoyed. It got to the point that I was trying to take my old transmission apart to see if there was something I had to take apart on the inside to get the cable drive out. Why the hell did it never occur to me to just use the groove cut into that piece to pull it straight out. I have no idea, I guess cause I figured that there's no way not would be that simple. Anyway I got the cable drive out so thanks for the help. Now I just have to reinstall in the new trans.

Can someone answer me about those shift linkage bushings? Or link me to the correct ones. I'm ready to get this thing on the road again.

Thanks for your help guys. I'm learning a lot about the mechanical side of vehicles working on this thing.
