well..i need to take the tail housing back off anyway,so i can check for any wear marks on the steel plate/5gear
i reused the retaining clip for the stupid speedo drive gear,and wouldnt ya know,it broke after 3 weeks...now the VSS isnt getting nay signal,code 29 showing,and random stalling during deceleration..pain in the ass
mine has the 8 tooth gear,and i was using a 23T cable gear,(3.73 rear)which as im sure you know,get chewed to shreds constantly..i have a 6 and 7 tooth gear here,so im going to swap in the 6T drive gear and an 18T cable gear..i figured i'd go with the 6T cuz it allows for correction up 4.30 ring&pinion i believe with a 21T cable gear..
the 7T gear uses the 21T cable gear for 3.73's,so thats the deepest rear gear it will correct for,and i cant ever see myself using anything less than a 3.73 rear..
i didnt see anything wrong with the 2nd gear or slider,even before the rebuild, the 1-2 shift was smooth,so i didnt replace at this time..i'll be sure to check next time..im sure there will be a next time lol
on a side note..t-5 from a 99 v6 mustang have the same internals as the 1352-208 t-5? i know the issues with the NGS,input shaft and swapping the tail housing due to the newer t-5's using the electric speedo..but i can get one for free,and was thinking i could use the gearbox as a spare...so basically,is the gerabox itself interchangeable with the trans
