finally got er back on the road. i had a friend help me rebuild my th350, and i got it put back in yesterday. shes been sitting for about a month and it was soo nice to get to drive her agin :nanawrench:
the guy that helped me had them. one looked like a long piece of allthread and had a fixed in and the other srewed on by hand and compressed it just enought to remove the clips. the other tool he had i will try to descibe. it had a hole on the bottom plate to alow the input shaft to slide through. once it sat there it had arms on each side that went vertical. and one arm that came across to connect the two vertical arms(it had a locking unit so once compressed you had your hands free to take the clip out). in the center it had two pieces that went into the forward drum to compress that clutch. i hope this wasnt too confusing. i dont know where you find such tools. i just got really lucky
ya it wasnt difficult. the thought of doing it was far worse than doing it. just remember to check everything. mine had a bad bushing on the input shaft and one somewhere else. i cant quite recall. and the steels and the friction plates go in as they came out. lol simple huh.
