    well due to recent issues with my gearbox/clutch,
    the gearbox wass taken out today...

    initial thoughts was that the clutch release bearing had failed,

    this was not the case...

    when the fluid was droped from the gear box, metal came out!
    BIG BITS!!!

    turns out the input shaft bearing had failed...
    and the input shaft oil seal was also worse for where.

    luckily theres no damge to the box or gears,


    anyway, part number on a couple of parts if anyone need to change
    these are the numbers on the parts which appear to be standard items.....

    input shaft bearing - NTN 6306V23
    input shaft oil seal - NOK BH5066E

    heres some photos of the days work, and damage

    BIG UPS TO MIKE FOR DOING 99% OF THE WORK! (mpau009 on www.clubvr4.com)
    COULDNT HAVE DONE WITHOUT YOU!!

    Ah dam, metal bits are never good!

    good to see you got it all fixed relatively cheaply though Carsten, looks like a sizable job!

    not back together yet,
    gotta get the new bearing and oil seal tomorrow..

    also going to replace the clutch realse bearing as we bent it a bit when we got the box out,

    ill get the box back together during the week ready to go back in next weekend,

    just happy its not too costly a repair.
    cant really afford the heavy duty clutch this time of year.

    was 3-4 hours to get it all out,
    will prob take about that to get it all back together.

    That bearing and 2 seals will cost him about $20 if he goes to a bearing shop and not mitsubishi.

    Grass looks that green? Really? Actually, I've put my reply in ClubVR4 but the fact that you can tackle these kind of jobs. Nice one!

    run down of repair cost...

    new bearing fitted, ($43 from saeco, could have gotten it way cheaper but i just wanted it done asap)

    picked up now oil seal, ($19.10 from mitsi parts)

    new clutch release bearing fitted ($37 from allstop)

    Royal Purple Gear Box oil, 75/90 4L enough for gearbox transfer case and rear diff ($64 from STA www.staparts.co.nz)

    info on royal purple ---->>> http://www.royalpurple.com/

    help from friends priceless :D

    assembled most of the gearbox today, only had a little time to work on it,
    so all the gears/selectors are in the casing,

    just need to bolt the clutch cover side on.
    will do it tomorrow evening.

    Yay, do I get the points for diagnosing the issue? I'll have to find the thread where I said it was gearbox input bearing. :p

    Good to see you're getting it all sorted!

    isn't the clutch release bearing the throw-out bearing?
