NOTE: It may be necessary to straighten the housing during removal due to the tendency for the reverse idler shaft to bind into one side of the housing.
NOTE: Tag all countershaft pre-load shims from between the bearing race and the housing (COUNTERSHAFT REAR BEARING RACE AND SHIM).
NOTE: If necessary strike the flat side area of Wrench 8226 with a hammer to break the nut loose.

NOTE: Some gear and synchro components can be installed backwards. Mark the gears, clutch gears, synchro hubs, and sleeves for installation reference during disassembly. Use paint or a scribe for marking purposes. Then stack the geartrain parts in order of removal.
