Anytime you rebuild/update/upgrade your transaxle, it never comes with oil in it. Make sure you add 90 wt after it is installed. It would be wise to update the trans mounts, nose cone seal and shift coupler/bushing if equipped.

The PRO's Recommendations:
  • Billet Bearing Caps make the job easy
  • The install kit comes with seal kits, hardware, axle nuts and seal races. Make sure every box is checked when doing a quality installation.
