I need to remove the front housing of this transmission so I can machine the bell housing flange off and weld a new one on.
ZF are very reluctantly give out service or workshop manuals.
I have removed all of the detents and all the fixing pins that screw through the side, the circlip on the input shaft and the bolt that goes through the bearing behind the cover under the input shaft.
The front housing moves around 3-5mm away from the rear housing but doesn’t go any further, I’ve tried hitting the lower shaft back through the bearing but it still will not budge.
Does anyone know how to remove the front housing / bell housing is removed from this gearbox?
