    Default Caterham 6-Speed Yoke Removal

    Tech question guys,

    Pulling the yoke off the rear of the tranny, any special instructions?

    Any pointers to a good type 9 online manual would be appreciated.

    I'm about to go through my Type 9 this next weekend. It will be my maiden outing. I'm going to install a BGH close ratio gearset along with new synchro, bearings and seals. I've looked around quite a bit in preparation and come up pretty empty for a thorough online guide. Empty enough that when I was in the UK this past summer I made it a point to stop by and meet Brian at BGH and get some personal hand-on instruction from the voice of his 40 years of Ford transmission experience. He kindly took me through the overhaul of a gearbox that they were doing for a customer during my visit. Now, 4 months later I'm about to see what, if anything, I can remember from that experience.

    That said, here are links to the most helpful materials that I have come across on the web WRT the Type 9 gearbox:
    Classic Ford magazine T-9 guide
    Type 9 assembly video

    I hope that his helps.

    When i pulled the yoke from my 6 speed, i had to move the rear diff back a few inches in addition to moving the engine forward a few inches while tilted to clear everything. The yoke is about 5-6" long iirc. Remember to drain the transmission as you'll get some fluid coming out. Other than that, pretty straight forward coming off.

    I have done 4, T9 overhauls now but they were all 5 speeds I don't know how similar they are to the Cat 6 speed though. Here you go: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4i6b4ll85w...ansmission.pdf
