How to rebuild a velvet drive 10-17-004 1:1
HERE IS A FEW PHOTOS I TOOK WHILE REBUILDING MY VELVET DRIVE MARINE TRANSMISSION ..
ROOT OF CAUSE FOR REBUILD WAS THAT I RAN IN REVERSE INTO SAND BANK DURING LAKE TRIALS AFTER I BROUGHT THE SUNSPORT HOME , FORWARD WAS
STILL IN GOOD WORKING ORDER SO I JUST WENT ABOUT MY WAY ... THIS IS WHAT I FOUND AND HOW I WENT ABOUT TO REBUILD MY TRANSMISSION , :NOTE:
I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL AND THIS WAS MY FIRST TRANS REBUILD OF ANYKIND ! EXCEPT REGULAR TRANFER CASE AND REAR ENDS ...
FIRST DRAIN THE 2 QTS AND REMOVE THE STRINGER MOUNTS ....
NEXT MARK THE FRONT PUMP HOUSING I USED A PUNCH TO MAKE TO CORRESPONDING DOTS TO LINE BACK UP WHEN I RE-ASSEMBLE .. VERY IMPORTANT YOU DO THIS , THE PUMP CAN BE MOUNTED FOR LEFT ROTATION AND RIGHT ROTATION SO ITS IS CRUCIAL YOU MARK IT
REMOVE PUMP HOUSING WITH SMALL PICK OR (TWEAKY FLATHEAD) , CLEAN SHAFT FROM SEAL PITTING AND DEBRIS FOR PUMP GEAR TO BE REMOVED ....
REMOVE CAP BOLTS USING A 12POINT 3/8 SOCKET
Dear lively, I am getting ready to rebuild my velvet drive - and found your pictures on the supraboats website - however starting on post #4, the pictures are "Not Found". Do you know why not? From what I saw (the initial pictures & comments) -it appears like it couldbe very helpful! Thanks for any help!
Perfect post, but I can not see any picture as Charles2014, please if it possible - improve this
Hello, have you rebuil your velvet drive?
TAP LIGHTLY TO SPLIT PUMP CASE FROM TRANS HOUSING, USE GRAVITY TO HELP POP IT LOOSE WITH OUT SCARING CASING
SET CASE TO THE SIDE ....
AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR SURROUNDINGS
PULL THE CLUTCH DISC AND STEEL PLATES AND SET THEM ON A STAGING AREA IN THE SAME ORDER AS THEY WERE REMOVED
Thanks for these pics. Looking forward to seeing the rest.
ONCE YOU REMOVE THE PLATES YOU CAN PULL THE FORWARD SPLINE GEAR AND CLUTCH PACK... THERE WILL BE 2 SNAP RINGS THAT NEED TO BE REMOVED TO PRESS SHAFT OUT AND SEPARATE THE CLUTCH PUMP ASSEMBLY
SHAFT IS PRESSED THROUGH THE REAR AND THE BEARING WILL PULL OUT WITH YOUR FINGER
