    Default 184k mile SSP T5

    Im in Suwanee, Ga doing a clutch install on my 184k mile stock SSP Coupe, tranny shifts smooth other than occasional stubborn clutch, do you resurface flywheel? If not can you recommend where to go.

    Also was told to replace the rear main seal, and inspect the bearing retainer(the alum ones suck) on the trans and replace the input shaft seal for it, i'd do the seal in the tail housing too while you are in there.
    Any thoughts? TIA






    Thx Rob

    I am just off I-85 near Old Peachtree Rd.

    If it is shifting fine you don't have to go into the transmission. Usually when I open one I spot a lot of things that "ought" to be replaced... I wouldn't go into it if it is working unless you want to make it new!

    I stock the front retainers and they come with a new front seal. I stock the late model OE style tail seals because I like the quality.
    I have the generic ones too. I would choose a new shim for that input retainer while it is off. A new retainer won't likely use the same shim as the old one and the bearings will probably be a bit loose anyway.

    If your tail is leaking you must also inspect the slip yoke for grooves worn in it. If it is grooved, you will need a yoke as well as that bushing just inside the tail housing.

    I will send a PM with more information.
