Has anybody here undertaken the job of rebuilding their Borg Warner 66 automatic transmission?
My Jeep transmission has no reverse and even after I tightened the band it doesn’t work, so I thought I’d inquire see if it’s relatively simple to rebuild or something you need a whole bunch of special tools for.
Glad to be of help. My days of bw 65/66 repair are over but I do have fond memories of lying on my back and lowering the one in my series 2 down on my chest to remove it many years ago. Then reversal for reinstalling it! What fun.
Why not just get another one?? Sounds complicated to rebuild if you don’t have experience?? It’s a lot of work takin out laying on your back and if it still don’t work then that’s when it becomes a pain in the old neck lol have you thought about a rebuilt one or second hand??wiggles
That clicking action is from a detent inside the transmission, the selector valve is linked to it directly, so probably not…
A ‚new‘ one should run less than $800?
As long as you’re clean you can do about everything with the transmission but if the fault finding chart still gives band wear and such things you are not dismantling the entire thing, and you can still check it out with compressed air.
