[tcb] Re: tranny swap, going to a big nut from a split case

that's what i'm doing now, but it's a bitch to come along for 4 feet, then re 
attach then come along for 4 feet, or hook it up to the truck rope the steering 
wheel straight, pull it up the hill, truck i think weighs less than the bus so 
the back tires spin on dry pavement.
fun stuff
oh well, this will be alleviated next week with a big nut tranny :D

the cut off the drum thing is what another friend suggested, but that 
unfortunantly doesn't make the bus a roller when i get it off and the shoes 
out. i did the bfh and propane torch for about 2 hours on sunday. couldn't get 
it to budge so that's when i put the tire on it and drug it up and then back 
down the driveway hoping it owuld just break free, nothing, guess i'll just 
have to break down and get the old tranny out and the new one in so it will roll

I don't think it's the nut he is having problems with.  The drum is frozen to 
the brake shoes.

Cutting torch on stand-by or a plasma cutter can take the Nut off quickly.

well, i have the concern now that the big nut won't fit, and am weighing my 
options. but it's looking more and more like the adapter on teh big nut will 
make it go in smooth as butter, so i may just do that.

LOL!  My experience with them if it has been sitting for that long and the 
shoes are frozed there is no way in h_ _ _ you are going to be able to move the 
adjusters.  And as an afterthought, if he is going to change out the tranny 
anyway why bother removing the drum.

Make sure the adjusters are backed off if you can move them.
