Splitting case on the NV3500 transmission

Was wondering if anyone had hints on how to split the cases on the NV3500 5-speed transmission in the S10? I've got to put bearings in the one I've got and am hoping to get some hints before I start tearing into it.

I wouldn't advise that, there is a special jig required to take the NV3500 apart.

Well that's a bummer - have you ever pulled one apart? Just wondering why is a Jig required for disassembly? I've done plenty of old 4-speeds and T5's just haven't done one of these and it needs bearings...

Re: Splitting case on the NV3500 transmission

I already tried to do the same thing. what I've gotten out of it is start at the front there is a plug on the side that needs to be removed near the bell housing. I haven't found a tool yet to take it out, slide hammer with weird fitting?. then take out what ever is in there. then remove the cover on the input shaft. here there are 2 snap rings. I think you can just pull the shaft forward to take out the one on the out side of the bearing. I hope you can figure it from there. when I started I tried to take it apart backwards

if there are any corrections that need to be made to my process let me know please.

Re: Splitting case on the NV3500 transmission

LMFAO, i can either laugh here, or cry with you guys when you break shit.


pull the ft retainer behind the slave, 6 bolts.
pull the 2 bolts for the revers counter pin
pull the ft rail deten plug in the ft case half.
i braze a nut to it, and use a slide hammer.
that way, combination of heat and pulling pops it out.
then to get the gear train out you have remove the rear seal, and the snap ring. then tap the complete gear train out. there is a jig, but i use 2 tie straps to hold it together.

need trans info, parts or a complete assembly?
