I got some good info from TXCHOP on another thread, but his install was in an Electra Glide and he was installing the 6 speed into his existing case. I am changing out my existing transmission for a Revtech 6 Speed complete transmission.
I know I will need several special tools. My concern is that the HD factory service manual only appears to address removing the transmission with the engine already out of the frame. Does anyone have any information or experience in removing and installing a transmission with the engine still in the frame. I am guessing I will have to at least loosen the engine mounts.
Also any other tips or info on the Revtech install would be great. Please don't worry about insulting my intelligence (or lack thereof). More scoop is better than less.
Thanks all !
I can't help you but you'll probably find someone who can if you post this in the "V-twin engine mods" section. That is where most of the builders and gear heads hang out.
