So I was on my way to Idaho today to play Datto with Chet and Wide when I felt a horrible vibration and then cab started filling up with blue smoke!! :o I rolled down all windows (2) and pulled off at next exit. A horrible noise was coming from tranny while I was slowing down. I checked it out and found this

Tranny was literally falling apart, rear seal gone and aluminum chunks all over the place!. So I turned around and headed back home. At 45mph a bad vibration could be felt so I limped her home at 40 and did just fine.

Got home and in 2 hours had tranny pulled to get a better look.

Front ujoint right behind flange gave out <_< and took 4 spd asain with it!

This actually happened for a good reason!! Better now than on the way to cAndy. Last year clutch this year tranny!!
I have time to put this baby in before caNdy still

dogleg from early 200sx :D .

So this will actually be a tranny swap thread. I have a 1 piece driveline that I want to use. I have done prelimanary measurements and it looks like it will need to be lengthened aboot 2-3 inches. (Thats what my wife always tells me too!!)

I am going to put dogleg in then measure to have tranny mount cut and welded back together. Then I will measure for driveline as well. If I can't get driveline done in time I may go with a 620 front half. I just really want to get rid of carrier bearing!

I will be using fork and throwout bearing and collar from the original 521 tranny.

I hope this will help some of the 521 guys that are looking to do this swap :cool: .

I prolly won't put dogleg in untill next weekend. (Hate my job sometimes most of the time)

I'm a witless bastard.

Check the oil level. If desperate, you could fill with 140W gear oil to maybe quiet it but only until you can get it out and fixed or replaced.
