if any of you guys are replacing the kicker gears in your tranny make sure the gear that goes on the end of the mainshaft meshes with the gear that is in the kicker cover. i spent about 8 hours yesterday doing a 1 hour job aND IM STILL NOT DONE. after i figured out the problem i could'nt get the new kicker gears back off the mainshaft so had to completely dissassemble the transmission to remove them. so then i figured i would replace the bushing in the original gear but guess what the new bushing just falls though it. so i took the bushing out of the gear that wont mesh and guess what it falls through the oem gear too. so all i gotta do now is make a bushing that fits. hope this saves someone else from all this fun.
