Pulling the tranny

Postby jzxcrx » Fri Apr 14, 2017 1:21 pm

So my latest CRX is going to be a bigger project than I hoped. 91 HF.
I've got to remove transmission to fix the bad input shaft bearing.

Haven't really worked on Hondas to any extent, ..easy, right?
So I'm gonna remove the transmission from UNDER the car? I don't have a lift. Any tips or advice appreciated, also
Is there any how-to threads on this board for dropping the tranny. I've been looking through the searches.

When I get the tranny out am I going to replace the input shaft bearing myself?
All I'll need for special tools is an inside puller for the bearing?
(Or should I start thinking about paying the $700 thetranny shop wants to "rebuild" the transmission - IF I deliver it to them).
Thanks folks.

It's fairly simple getting the trans out on one of these small cars. I did the same job as you on my '91HF, ISB was bad as well. Take the trans out yourself, and take it to the shop, all they need to do is replace the ISB and that is no where near the $700 range.

You could have that motor out in 1-2 hours. Definitely do it yourself. These are one of the easiest cars to work on.

Thanks. I've gotten myself the factory service manual off eBay so that's good.

So do Ihave to pull the whole engine, or can I get it out from underneath?

when mechanic change the clutch or replace the rear main seal, they just are able to remove the tranny alone without removing the entire engine. it would be nice to remove the entire engine and do some gasket and senor replacements.

It takes about an hour or so to get the transmission out. The hardest part about it is gettting the bitch pin out.

I make a cardboard template of the mating surface. I use it to get track of what bolts go where and what direction. You do not want to get that wrong.
