The overdrive unit can be serviced separately. It is not necessary to remove the entire transmission assembly to perform overdrive unit repairs.
  1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
  2. Disconnect and lower or remove necessary exhaust components.
  3. Remove engine-to-transmission struts, if equipped. Disconnect fluid cooler lines at transmission.

  6. If transmission is being removed for overhaul, remove transmission oil pan, drain fluid and reinstall pan.
  7. Remove fill tube bracket bolts and pull tube out of transmission. Retain fill tube seal. On 4 x 4 models, it will also be necessary to remove bolt attaching transfer case vent tube to converter housing Rotate crankshaft in clockwise direction until converter bolts are accessible. Then remove bolts one at a time. Rotate crankshaft with socket wrench on dampener bolt.

  9. Disconnect gearshift rod and torque shaft assembly from transmission.
  10. Disconnect throttle valve cable from transmission bracket and throttle valve lever.
  11. On 4 x 4 models, disconnect shift rod from transfer case shift lever.
  12. Support rear of engine with safety stand or jack.

  14. Remove bolts securing rear support and cushion to transmission and crossmember. Raise transmission slightly, slide exhaust hanger arm from bracket and remove rear support.
  15. Remove bolts attaching crossmember to frame and remove crossmember.
  16. On 4 x 4 models, remove transfer case with transmission jack or aid of helper.
  17. Remove all converter housing bolts.
