Assembling the Transmission

Stage 35.1

Join the Driveshaft (Piece 1) and Driveshaft (Piece 2) together, aligning the screw holes, and secure with three (3) CM screws.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Stage 35.2

Identify the end of this Driveshaft assembly where the two tabs are closer together. Fit the larger end of the Front Coupling between these tabs, align the screw holes, and secure the coupling in place with one (1) GM screw, as shown:

Stages 35.3 – 35.4

At the other end of the Driveshaft assembly, fit the larger end of the Rear Coupling between the tabs, align the screw holes, and secure the coupling in place with two (2) CM screws (one from each side), as shown:

Thoughts


These parts feel quite solid, but the end joints should be able to move a bit. Store this Driveshaft assembly somewhere safe for now as we will not need it until a later stage.
