I have a stripped out thread on the bolt which holds my gear
shift lever on a KM35A (I think) transmission
. Sorry but don't have a picture of it. It is located in a spot where it would be very difficult to drill a straight hole so I think that I am going to have to pull the transmission
in order to drill in an insert. I am also very bad at drilling holes straight. My plan is to remove the transmission set it up on a drill press or to find someone with a better hand then mine and drill the hole properly. From there I will tap it. It is currently held in place with this product Permatex 81668 Stripped Thread Repair Kit : Amazon.com : Automotive
I looked at the advertising and saw that it would hold 128 ft lbs. Sounded good to me. After reading the manual I found out that the holding power on it for a 6mm bolt was only between 2 and 4 ft lbs. I don't think that is enough but am not positive. 128 ft lbs was for a 1" bolt.
I was wondering if anyone had ever removed this transmission and could give me advice. One thing I was wondering is how much you would need to mover the Prop shaft aft in order to get the transmission off of whatever spline it mounts to.
Thanks in advance.
