    Now to the valve body. Pull the oil pan(10mm bolts). Name:  IMG_0655[1].jpg
Views: 194
Size:  96.3 KB Remove the 14mm nut that holds a lever to the bottom of the shift shaft. Be careful not to lose the piston in the valve body, it slides out either end. Name:  IMG_0657[1].jpg
Views: 196
Size:  95.4 KB To remove valvebody remove all the 10mm bolts that have the number 7 on the head, leave all the rest of the bolts and nuts alone. The round plug for the wiring should come out with the valve body out the bottom.Name:  IMG_0658[1].jpg

Size:  93.1 KB Back to the center case, to remove the oil pump the shift shaft is in the way, I had to dissassemble the pump to remove it. The only other way was to punch out the roll pin holding the detent lever near the top of the shaft. 4 bolts was easier. Here's the upper half of the oil pump: Name:  IMG_0661[1].jpg

    You need any special tools to get this far...or just a pair of snap-ring pliers?!?

    Just regular tools needed. A 10,12, and 14mm socket so far. To get the snap ring for the oil pump gear I just used needle nosed pliers to open the ring, to get the one holding the clutch discs I used a small flat blade. There are some bolts that have a weird head (inverted torx e16)on them but a 6point 12mm fit them fine, you could use the proper socket too. Name:  IMG_0665[1].jpg

    Any reason you are tearing this one down? Is this a recent failure?

    This is the one that failed with around 220000kms. I originally replaced it with one that I attempted to fix a cracked main case. It started leaking within a few days. I either missed a spot when I brazed the case or I warped the case from too much heat. I haven't torn it apart yet to see yet. If it's too screwed I was gonna try to swap the guts from it to this case. If it's not too much trouble that is. I'm down to the clutches and I'm not sure how they come out. I don't really want part to fly across the building.

    And yes eggman you could put a locker in anything. If they make one. One tire of fire is pretty lame though. It's easy to pull the ring gear/carrier assembly. Just weld the side gears to the spider gears like they do in demo derby cars. Have yourself a Lincoln locker. Name:  IMG_0677[1].jpg

    Ha you took me seriously. Sorry. I only spin on ice & snow. Besides I often wonder if ASC does this by applying brake to the slipping wheel.

    I just wanted to be the first to ask.
