  • B.E. Gearbox

    Ok, I'm taking apart a GE backend gearbox to replace all the seals. In this order, I took out the OS shaft & the wheel shaft. The dist. output shaft doesn't appear to be connected to any other gears at this point, (i've replaced those seals before by only removing the dist. shaft) where i'm getting stuck is the worm shaft. How the heck do I get that out?? [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] Do you have to take the nut off at the other end?

    I talked to someone about it, but all of your comments are still welcome.

        same way as the 30, 70 ge comby,s etc..
        at top of box meaning where the shaft comes out to the rotor/armature there is a retaining plate 4 screws it is the same size head as the long bolts that hold the stator on.. remove them then pri plate away from box not much room to work on here you have to do this through the cooling fins,,
        with the carpet drive side pulled off tap end of shaft through,, with comby boxes use large phillips driver through the oil plug hole and pry shaft out,,,
        to get worm of shaft you will need a length of tube that fits over worm, and a plate with hole at end for the thread to go put nut on and tighten this will push rotor of the end of the work,, you may have to heat the outside of join first,, the seal serface....

          Well, obviously i needed to take that nut off. What I did was clamp on some vice grips between the bearing and the cent. switch to hold in place and that made it pretty easy to get the nut off. A few taps and out came the rotor, shaft & worm. Getting the old seal out was a pain though, wound up using a punch from inside. Putting it back together, torqued the nut back down..... too much, spun the threads rightout of the nut. Also, I don't have all the gaskets, can I use Permatex blue goo gasket maker?

                Farley, next time put a strap wrench around the rotor; this way you don't damage any part of the shaft.
