A colleague of mine from Vienna sent me this link. I can't take on any more projects, someday it would be cool to drive a V8 pushbutton and TL Suspension car, but not this one!

I bought a pair of 90deg snap ring pliers, but they keep slipping off. I guess I need some old fashioned ones that don't have the round tips.....

I don't know of a neoprene seal that fits. I replaced mine with a graphite seal.
I made a funnel type Tool that helped me pull in the new seal.

Right you are Don. I got 2 rings out from the clutch shaft with a combination of pliers, a screwdriver, a putty knife, and......safety goggles!
Stay safe, and happy tinkering.

test seems ok Kev....
I still am at a loss for what kind of snap ring, or circlip pliers are used to open that type of ring. I have a set of the ones with the little pins at the ends to open rings that have 2 holes in them, and understand that I will need some pliers that are bent 90 degrees to get in there, but still am not sure how the pliers will grab the ring to make it smaller to allow it to come out. Well, this is the mystery that makes this hobby interesting always something to learn
I guess the pliers -If I can find a set- will go under the christmass tree!

Last post for me tonight. Here a nice picture of the coutershaft and associated parts. I think it is 25 needle bearings at each end. I noticed the the steel washer on the rear side was kind of blue. Is that indication that it was run hard or dry at some point?

Right now, I have no idea how I am supposed to get this retaining ring out of the rear bearing on the tail shaft. Are there plyers to go around a corner? That is stopping me from further dis-assembly. Please chime in if you know how to proceed.
As of now, I will clean and inspect and sort the parts, and try and figure out what is next. Don't expect this to move too fast, but I would like to put this back together eventually.
It would also be nice to replace the snap rings with newer ones that have the holes to put the pliers in. Are there old style plyers that are used to remove these snap rings? Hope I can make some progress again soon, but I am not holding my breath

After the clutch shaft is out, you can remove the 5 bolts holding the tailshaft onto the transmission body. Of course if there is an OD here, this gets more difficult. When the 5 bolts are out, you can remove the 2/3 selector and the synchro thing(sorry, forgot the word) Between the clutch shaft and the intermediate shaft is a spring of some sort. I guess this preloads the bearings? See picture 10. Wiggle out the tail shaft, and out it comes! All pretty easy so far. And FUN!

When the counter shaft is driven out, the counter shaft falls down into the bottom of the trans housing, and you can take out the clutch shaft. Remove the 6 screws on the front cover, then remove the big snap ring that is the bearing retainer. Note the hook for the throw out bearing return spring is on the pass side of the trans. After the big ring is removed you can wiggle out the clutch shaft.
The last picture shows the clutch shaft with the bearing retaining clips, and a needle bearing that goes in the back of the clutch shaft.

I noticed that Kanter sells a kit for about 200$ with gaskets and bearings. I might try that for wear parts and gaskets, unless I find a better source.
