I was driving my B10 this weekend and all of a sudden it quit moving. The input shaft is moving but the output shaft is not. I suspect a key is sheared but don't know which one. My question is how much do I have to tear apart to get it out? I remember it was one of the first things I put in when I put it together and it is all painted up and I hate tearing it all apart.

Are you asking what you have to take apart to get the gear box out or to get the part out of the gearbox?

Check the manual in our "manuals" section. Good Luck, Rick

 

There are keys on the input and output shafts. They can be replaced without removing the box.

The bgb cover is accessible with a little removal of stuff and double jointed fingers. To get the whole bgb out, it's a project.

I couldn't agree more. You need to take the dash tower off, that includes disconnecting the shifter, steering column(or removing the steering wheel), wiring/cables, the drive shaft, and then unbolting it. It is possible to leave the wiring and cables connected but would be easier to have the dash completely off. This is based off of what I had to do to my B210, don't remember the exact differences between the B10 dash style and that one. I have an extra gear box that came out of a B10 that I parted out if you are interested.

I have not had time to work on it yet. I am hoping it is on the outside shaft.

Well I got it apart and that is a big job, even bigger job touching up the paint. The key had fallen out of the gear. How I do not know but some how it came out. I worked fine for a while but then just quit turning. I put a washer between the gear and brg to take care of some end play but I don't think there was enough play to let the key come out?

It almost had to slide that shaft one way or another. Check to see if the pullies are all tight on both sides.

Well I got it all back together and the paint on the bolts all touched up. I drove it around for a while and all seamed fine. I still don't know how that key came out, but stranger things have happened.

Glad you got it back together and it was a simple fix. I loose keys on my 410. I dont know if the bgb is thw same. There's room for the keys to slide out.
