I take it there are no indexing points or key way to set the gears?
I guess they didnt think anyone would want to rebuild there own?

Nothing to set them by except shimming gears and rotors to set center of backlash. Not a garage job by any means.

I may be delayed by only a week. Trans tentatively scheduled for one week from Monday. Have something on the way which will also put me 2/3rds closer to the hybrid supercharger.

Oh, and it will also give me an extra BCS and BCA for either car.

All I have to do is pull those rotors, slap them into my ported case (with the new needle bearings that are already in it), slap on my fully rebuilt nosedrive, and I'm running. Fully ported and polished, new bearings.

Then I port and polish that Ebay case, replace the needle bearings, rebuild the nosedrive (All for under 50 bucks) then slap in a rotor assembly from a 94/95, and the hybrid is complete.

That looks a lot like rebuilding a gearcase on an outboard motor. The first time I did it, I smoked it by not shimming the gears properly, it sucked because they welded themselves together with friction. I now have a shim gauge, because that was an expensive rebuild. If you need any shims, let me know what size, because Yamaha makes them in alot of different sizes, they are paper thin, and you just keep stacking them until you are good.

I've got more shim material than you'll ever see in a lifetime. Different materials (mylar, poly, stainless) and every dimension under the sun. It won't help this job any. You need custom jigs and fixtures to pull this off, but SOMEbody had to try, right?

Did you read my earlier posts in this topic?

I STARTED getting the parts from www.rollingperformance.com but had problems getting a response late in the game, and had to go to www.texasthunderbirds.com for the rest.
