Post More slave cylinder weep hole pics

Had my tranny out this weekend to replace seals & drill the weep hole. Thought a few more photos showing where to drill the hole might be of help to those who are considering this exercise.

I measured the depth of the shoulder inside the input shaft bore to give me a limit as to how far towards the front of the transmission the hole can be drilled. (I'll have to post that value after I confirm it when I get back home tonight). The photo below shows the location of that internal shoulder from the outside of the tranny (which is clamped upside down in my workbench):



So, I used a spring-loaded center punch to set the hole position as shown in the next photo (again, I'll verify this dimension later):



Here's the drill bit in the hole, from top & bottom:





Hope this helps folks in their weep hole location planning

Great pics, just make sure you get ALL the shavings out before you throw it all back together

Just a note for those wondering, the picture with the drill protruding into the slave cylinder bore is shown with the tranny upside down. The hole is in the BOTTOM of the bore.

Yes, I forgot to mention the vacumming and wiping and flushing and wiping that occurred after the hole was drilled!

I did mention that at the top of my original post, but that's such an important detail that I went back and highlighted it

Too late now, but I always stuff a paper towel into the transmission input shaft area to prevent ANY shavings from falling into the tranny.
