    Can This Be Fixed?

    I got my replacement bellhousing for the one that was damaged a while back and this is what I got, I'm not very happy about this to say the least... This thing was supposed to be put back together and on it's way to being put back into my damn car already.

    I was thinking of taking it to a trans shop and seeing if it can be welded and re-machined, what do you guys think?? I'm really pissed about this one...







    From what it looks like to me somone didn't line up the shift fork rods and continued to assemble the trans, reguardless.

    I was thinking the same, however... The sleeve inside, how would one get their hands on one of those?

    Aluminum, even when new, is hard to weld. After lengthy saturation in oil/gear oil, it is ten times harder to weld, no matter how hard you work to clean it. I suspect you can get a good used one for less than the cost to repair this, presuming the repair works. Just my 1.5 cents worth.

    I wouldn't try fixing that. That bell housing is garbage if you ask me.
