Old school GE Tranny repair














After removing the trans from the machine I placed it on my work table. I removed the pulley and base plate being careful not to disturb the large "O" ring which is mounted on the inside of the base plate. If it pops out it is a bitch to replace.
I knocked out the old seal (WH8X281)and cleaned the lip up real good. I applied a thin amount of oil to the seal and gently tapped it into place. If you want you can use a small wood block to prevent damage to the new seal. I added oil to the case half way up. I was also careful to not over tighten them screws. They will strip easy and it will leak so snug it up.
