With all the major parts removed, the empty transmission casing still has some minor items attached, such as the vents and positioning dowels.
These are items that we would not normally remove as part of working on this type of transmission.
Our focus during a tear-down is on removing items that:
- Have failed, or
- Within reason, might:
- Fail in the next x years
- Hide pieces of metal that broke off from damaged parts. Such pieces might range in size from tiny to large, but each one poses a potential threat.
