Pulling the tranny for the second time in 3 days....lol

Ok well I just recently got a jeep and before this I have never laid a finger on one. When I got it, it was leaking fluid pretty bad. The previous owner said the rear main has been replaced so this is were the first transmission pull comes in place. Assuming the rear main was replaced I thought the only thing it coulda been was the input shaft seal so this past Friday I started pulling the tranny. Wasn't hard at all. After receiving the seal I put everything back together by sat and have been driving it sence. Well after 15 mins I noticed it was still leaking!!!!!! I was like wth!!! Well today I went to pull out of the driveway and bam the clutch hit the floor. I looked around and noticed all the brake fluid was dumping fluid from the bellhousing. Well three days later round two. Tonight I pulled the tranny again!! This time I times myself...lol. It took me literally 41 mins to have the tranny unbolted and laying on the floor. Upon further investigation the o ring in the slave took a crap causing the prob. While Im at it I decided to replace the rear main. As I did that I realized the guy replaced the cap/bottom part of the rear main seal but not the upper...lol. So I got that covered. Anyway I'm waiting to get the new slave tomorrow and I will have everything back together. Fingers crossed I have no more leaks!!!....lol. Sorry for the long story but I had to share my experience so far...

That was the worst part of the whole thing. Getting the motor and trans angle the same so the input shaft doesn't bind. As far as lining the teeth on the input shaft I just grab the tranny and twist it back and for till it slides in

Just got done with one about a month ago. Did you use the clutch alignment tool. We had the same problem getting that last 1 1/2" in. Once we spun the shaft and wiggled it side to side, we had it.

"Clutch alignment tool" For the win.. I saved mine from when I replace my clutch incase I need to drop it again. Not sure if you can buy one separate from a clutch kit.

It you buy the clutch alignment tool get the one for the small pilot style input shaft. You can always wrap it with electrical tape to make it a snug fit in the large pilot bearing. But you can't make a large pilot alignment tool work in a small pilot bearing hole.
