Well I somehow managed to chip the input gear last night while trying to chase down the awful rattling noise I have at low rpms (<800) when unloaded. Not one of my finer moments, now the trans needs to come out again.... My question is about the rebuild. The manual I had said several gears had to be pressed off the main shaft. I only needed to press off the 3/4 servo assembly. Everything else, besides the main shaft bushings pretty much slid of the splines. There was a very small amount of play between one of the gears and the shaft, but at the time I was not worried about it. Are these supposed to be pressed on and is it possible this is causing the noise that is going to lead to me driving the thing of a bridge? Before my circus stunt last night the truck drove fine without problems besides the noise. Thanks again......Anyone got a good deal on a nv4500?
