And one more pan pic...
Kooler Kleen in a spray can has been around for many years, and the bit of residue left will not harm new trans fluid.I've used compressed air and carburetor cleaner to flush the cooler lines in the past, being sure to clear all the cleaner out before reassembly.
Correction. I went out and looked at the 2 that I have and they are both like that. They were machined that way so it's not a problem.Those splines are shot. It needs to be replaced. The good news is there are a bunch of them, used and refurbished, with the drum, on eBay pretty cheap. Just make sure you get the correct one, they come in 298mm and 300mm and are not interchangeable.
You have brand new ones that look like that? I doubt it. The splines are not hardened, the stator support(the splines) are a wear item. Yes, they will last for a while yet, but as the convertor was bouncing around, I feel the trans should be disassembled and checked, so, if doing that, a new stator support is 50 bucks. You defiantly would not want to use that one for hi-per or serious off road. They even make hardened ones for such.Here is what a new one looks like-Correction.

I'm in the middle of doing my 94 transmission for the second time. I ordered a Sonnax stator shaft off of Amazon and took it down to Aamco to have it pressed on. It's not something I would recommend doing yourself.
I have a horror story about further damage as you go, but that's going on my post. Let's just say coolant in the transmission is catastrophic to metal on metal surfaces that normally ride on a nice cushion of tranny fluid.
Yeah. The stator shaft has 2 teflon seals and the turbine shaft has 4. If you have the right tools they aren't tricky at all.Is the stator shaft the one that has the Teflon seals that are tricky to install? If I understand what I've read / watched there are two places inside the trans that have these Teflon rings and they can be tricky to install and get right.
Have you started your thread on your rebuild yet? If so, I'd be interested in a link to it.
Woodbutcher, a member here rebuilt his and documented it well on the site.Epartsman said:... Has anyone done a rebuild on their own (as a DIYer)? If so, any links to sites with great information, or pointers are most welcome.
