Question:

Could you please tell me how a HM282 5 speed Transaxle comes apart I have all bolts out and have it broken apart but there seems to be something keeping it from completely seperating.

Answer:

If you are not familiar with this transmission your going to have a lot of fun!
 
There is a 3.5” black rubber type plug inside the bell housing that needs to be removed, under the cap there are 2 10mm bolts to take out then the detent holder will release all of the detent springs and interlocks. Once this is done there is a collar over the center shift shaft that needs to be pulled using two small crows foot pry bars. Then the cases will separate.


Question:   I have a 1991 Mustang GT, I'm looking to replace the trans in my fox body this summer. Someone told me that Borg Warner makes a new T5 that has the cobra first and second gears in them. It should be a direct bolt up replacement to my old busted Tremec T5. I know there are T5's for the 94-95 Cobras but they require different input shaft, i'm pretty sure. Can you help me out?

Reply:  There are Cobra 94 and 95 T5 units and yes they do have a longer input shaft but is replaceable with the shorter 1351-085-025 input to make it work in the 91.
 
I do not have a new unit but can supply a remanufactured unit with all new bearings, gaskets, seals and syncro rings with a 12 month warranty to these specs.

Question: 

I plan on buying a 2011 F-350 king ranch this summer is it possible to explain the different axle ratios i am in the section under ford trucks build and price i basicly know what i want but did not understand the different axle ratio could you give an answer please that would be helpful thank you.

Answer:

Selecting the axle ratio's is a consideration of what you plan to do with the truck and the tire size you plan to run.  If you are using larger tires you will want the lowest ratio possible, if you are using the truck as a daily driver around town and don't have lager tires you what the highest ratio possible say like 3.55. 

If you use the truck for tow and around town and have stock tire diameter you will need a compromise ratio of say 4.10, you will loose a little in mileage but you will still be able to tow. 

If the truck is used for long runs on the freeway you should consider installing one of our overdrive units for even more performance capability and economy, reduce engine RPM's by 600, improve mileage by 20% and gain new gears between second, third, and forth over, if it comes with a 5 speed  you will get 5th over, see overdrives at http://www.drivetrain.com/parts_catalog/overdrive_units/ford_4wd_pickup_trucks.html.
