Need 966 Transmission Help Please Sirs and Madams. in Technical IH Talk Posted June 3, 2021 1 hour ago, Jeff-C-IL said: If removing the MCV - leave the little short bolts holding the MCV together, and the 4 long bolts in the middle holding the pump, in place. Only remove the long bolts around the outside (experimentation is necessary to figure out exactly which). And yes, you need to dig clear down into the Rear end to remove the shaft. I don't remember ever taking out the PTO though, just can't remember. Hey, we all gotta learn somehow. BTW, there are some tricks while going back together too, like holding that big flat roller bearing together with rubber bands. And NEVER "pull" the engine/clutch to transmission together with bolts or come-along. They should slide in fully before installing the bolts. If it don't go, it ain't lined up right. Ask the great team on here if there are any questions....a whole lot easier to ask then fix later! I am sure glad you told me about the difference in bolts, avoiding another nightmare! Thank you! I really appreciate the help from all of you, I wish I had the sense to ask beforehand. As this moves along, I certainly will, and BTW I'll keep the Shinerbock iced down.?
