4-108 & Borg Warner


Gerald Astrella and Cathy Calisch

Hello Bud from Glorious in P.V. and need your advice. Transmission/reduction houseing leak at rear shaft. Older Borg with 4 in. dia. coupling and removable seal ring. Shaft coupling is a split type flange with 2 bolts and set screw. Packing gland is PYI dripless. Approx. 1 1/2 in. of free shaft between end of shaft coupling and gland rotor. QUESTION: Assuming all nuts and bolts can be removed, do you think I can pull the shaft back, remove the shaft coupling, the trans. coupling, nut and ring in the water? Of course you are not responsible for any action (or lack there of) on my part. If not or if any other suggestions?

It is very hard to say how much clearance you need. You may have to pull the transmission off the engine to accomplish the job. I would advise contacting a Borg Warner dealer to determine this. Try Trans Atlantic Diesel in VA. www.tadiesels.com tadinc@earthlink.net
