904 trans, 1967 slant six,......so how would you get this flywheel off?
If you mean the ring gear...you don't. Take the converter to a local converter shop (almost every big city has at least one) and they will cut that one off and weld a new one on.
What you are looking at is the torque converter. It should just slide forward off the input shaft of the auto trans.
If you can weld, you can do it yourself. Just remove the converter, cut the welds, remove the ring gear, clean the ring gear seat area and weld a new one on. Or, you can probably buy a reman stock converter for around 100 bucks with a new gear already on it.
I have a good 67 torque converter . Free if you want it. I'm in FLORIDA to.
The trans shop will probably recommend a new converter. I would actually endorse that. .....OR Al says he has one. If he says it's good, it is. He's a good dude.
Thanks AL, the converter is fine I think, the teeth in the ring gear are sheared in a couple spots. Your converter have a good ring gear?
Yes I believe it does. I will have to dig it up and check it.
Hey Troub, where you at in FLORIDA?
The FSM manual ('repair, dont replace' must be their montra) shows you how to cut the welds with a cold chisel and them hammer the ring off. Debur the edges and throw the new ring in a pan of hot water (?) or some heat source and then quickly get it centered onto the convertor before it shrink locks on. then tack weld it carefully so it doesnt warp. up through 67 convertors are small snout, remember that.
OOPS.... Captain Obvious here! You meant the damaged ring gear ON the torque converter. Slapping forehead!
On the farm, you would hit those teeth with a stick welder and file back to shape. I think a ring gear is about as expensive as a rebuilt convertor... Here are some cross reference part numbers for a common 904 convertor ring gearIndustry Part ID: RG-130H, CH-RG-130 (Sonnax), 3515203, 130C, 600-3105, CC130C, 416101, 6003105, RG21, ZA-510, FRG-130C, 4401, RG130COuter Dia: 13.195"Inner Dia: 11.19"Width: 0.33"External teeth: 130
Pensacola, far western panhandle. You down south?
I really need to learn how to weld.
Hey guys, this isn't a sale or wanted thread. Please discuss this with a personal message. Thanks.
Those tack welds are just scratching the stick to the joint and letting it arc flow about 1/2 second. Hard part with a stick welder is the stick 'sticking' and just turning to a red hot smoking wire, usually too low amperage. Flux MIG welder is real easy, just hover over it about 3mm and hit the trigger.
