Epiphany! High Tech drive thru engine tranny wash, like the cash wash... Bring your parts, prep for dry areas, place in various size tubs like airport security check conveyor, get steamed, degreased, sonic wash, bead blasted, soda washed, repeat, pick up the crumbs that are left on other end? Waste disposal permits might be issue?

New transmission mount fitted. The old one doesn't look that bad but there are cracks in the rubber. Now the mission is to find the correct torque values for the mount to the transmission and mount to transmission holder.

Other peripheral parts I knew were correctly placed on the transmission. Cable ties, second only to duct tape.

Transmission filled with 1 US gallon of Swepco 201. Drain plug and fill plug torqued to 30Nm.

Thanks Warwick. I wonder if Dan misplaced that from another job? I'll check tonight.

Hopefully CCS will source my clutch fork bush (needle bearing) today so I can fit the clutch fork and mate the box to the engine.

More action on the rear shocks as well. While they aren't leaking, the shop said that the bump stops have taken a pounding. They will advise on the refurb required when they have fully checked the parts.

John, did you find a torque setting for the M10 long bolt from the mount to the longitudinal? It is the same size as the 3 mount to casing bolts so when i fitted mine i used the same value, 23nm from memory

I can't find any reference for the fasteners holding the mount to the transmission or the large bolt through the mount itself.

FWIW M12 Transmission mount to body is 46Nm (the cross bar mounted to the transmission mount?) and M10 Stabiliser to stabiliser mount (engine carrier?) is also 46Nm.

Very frustrating....

Yes it is. I could find all other settings except the one you (we?) are looking for

Did you use Loctite? It's a shear load so the real issue is the nuts backing off.

No I didn't. There was none under the original nut and from memory it didn't take much to release it in the first place. Might be worth a call to a expert to confirm ? I might need to get under the car again to check

I think Loctite may be overdoing this so I'll torque to 46Nm and put it on my annual list for spanner checks.
