Re: 5R110 needed tools
No, you dont need a drill press. I just did mine about a couple months ago.
You absolutely need a GOOD clutch spring compressor, the output shaft nut socket, and long, thin, flat blade screwdrivers. Snap ring pliers also help on the reverse clutch, direct clutch, forward clutch, and coast clutch assemblies. The toughest snap ring is the low/reverse clutch. Its at the back of the trans. I also used a slide hammer with an adapter from snap on to remove the pump. Made very quick work of it.
Other than that, only a few sockets needed (8 mm, 10mm, 13mm, that may be it but cant recall for sure). You'll have to rig up some way to load the forward geartrain. I used a coat hanger modified. Worked great.
IF you go into the pump (which you should), you will need some way to align the pump halves. I used several hose clamps together to form a band. Also used old pump bolts as alignment dowels. Make sure the main pressure valve moves freely in the pump, mine was sticky.
Replace as many solenoids as you can afford. Clean EVERYTHING, including the solenoid body very well. Set your clutch pack clearances within spec, with special attention to the forward clutch and direct clutch assemblies. I set mine on the tighter end, it worked well with the kit i bought. BE CAREFUL WITH THE TEFLON SEALING RINGS! They have to overlap a specific way or they will not fit. Buy a tub of vaseline, i used them on the thrust washers/bearings it works great. Soak all clutch packs prior to installation?
What kit did you buy?
I strongly recommend buying the ATSG manual.
Shoot me a PM.
