Ouch man, sorry to hear this
Keep us up to date on what you find when you split the case.I think my cousin missed a shift from second to third and ground the dogs off. It was fine when I parked it and then I loaned it to him and his girlfriend, everything was fine until then. I actually also note now that I have all the panels off - that the noise is only on the input/flywheel side from the motor and when the clutch is engaged (pedal) - there is no noise. When I leave it in neutral and let the cutch out - it will rattle/tic at the same 3k rpm as I saw in 3rd. The difference was the sound level in 3rd was low so I could easily hear it and in 4th, the RPM's were too low.. When I split the case I will know for sure..
That is a bummer. Maybe this helps a bit....Well - 3rd gear is gone, pulling tranny and likely the dogs are wore off. Can't pinpoint when it started, but it is on the flywheel input side of the tranny and she's coming apart to get fixed for the Oct trip..
On stock 2016 gears, now is the time to switch it up. I'm running 30's and maybe the 2019 gearset would be fine for now. I think I can do this quickly..
Sound good Jay hope the rest go'es smooth.My buddy had the 2019 gear set installed when we went down to weller I think it was about 1500.00 parts and labor He likes it say the trans shift a lot smoother and quieter.I think you will like the gear change.Hi everyone - I'm doing what I can to get this completed asap. The wear is on all of the dogs between gears (I think my other cousin was shifting on the power with no clutch.) Turns out that it was more than 3rd - pretty much 2-5th and 1st/reverse are fine.
I pulled the trigger on a '19 gearset and the rest of the rebuild parts. Some RMATV and others at PartZilla since they wouldn't be in stock until mid/late Oct.
My entire parts roll-up is about $680 and I swap every gear on the output side with the rest in really good shape. I caught it in time which really helped - there wasn't much in the strainer or the pan when drained, but there were some good size chunks off the dogs that were in the bottom of the case.
Parts should be here by end of week or mid next week, getting it out was a chore - but I learned A LOT doing it and what not to do and the easy things.
I'm confident I'll have it fixed in time - whether I'll be coming up in a toy hauler will be the question... Looks like my cousin may be going back to Oklahoma for family early...
