    Thank you. The mechanic will call me to the shop when he starts the process. The clutch was working perfectly with no slippage. And I hardly use it to begin with. So I tend to agree with you guys that it's the clutch brake or linkage. If the tranny DOES have to come out, I might as well get it overhauled too. In the grand scheme of things, the extra money spent would be worth it in the long run. The engine had an inframe done 70,000 miles ago. So if I get the tranny done too, it should be a moneymaker for a long while.

    I think the master rebuild kit DID include the gears. I know one of the kits did.

    That $1300 is very deceving. For an actual rebuild i.e all new gears and so on your looking at easily $5000-7500 with labor depending on what you got. In some cases it may actully be cheaper just to buy a remanned tranny and do a full swap

    I don’t care what type of clutch brake you have it is possible to replace it without removing the tranny. If it’s not a hinged or two piece style it’s going to be a beetch but it’s doable. If something with the cam type linkage inside the flywheel housing broke it’s also possible to fix without removing the tranny. I honestly doubt it’s either. I would be guessing the end pulled off one of the rods between the pedal and the side of the tranny. The only reason I see to pull the tranny is if the throw out bearing broke or pulled out of the pressure plate. As far as the high mileage on it if you’re really worried you can see quite a bit though the 8 bolt pto port on the bottom. You can usually reach at least one magnet to and see what’s on it. Hopefully just some super fine metal powder, which is normal. If the gears look good and aren’t real floppy on the main shaft I would leave it in there for a while

    Eaton lists (or did list) all their part and kit info online.

    99% of the time the gears last a long time. At one time I had access to Caterpillar's reuse & salvage criteria. A gear has to be pretty rough to be considered scrap by Cat's standards and Cat would tell you to etch each reused gear with the rebuild number and hours. At 3rd overhaul they get scrapped regardless. That could be upwards of 35,000 hours on a gear lol.

    What was it you finally bought? And how long were you waiting again?

    A clutch brake isn’t going to put the pedal to the floor, it just stops the main shaft so you can put it in gear without grinding, it’s either linkage or a spring on the disk that’s come apart, you can pull a trans in less then An hour, and the linkage is cheap enough to replace it should be done anyway with the trans out.

    If you need the whole trans then you are better off buying an new (not reman), but I doubt it, I’ve got 2.2 on my 18 and when I took the cover off to install the pto gears all looked good and fluid was clean.

    Yeah, he told me the parts were probably less than $80 (if it's what he thinks it is). But he said the tranny had to come out. The tranny itself is running good. I just figured as long as it was out, maybe I should redo it.
