Th400 Rebuild

Anyone tackle the task of tearing apart and rebuilding their own th400? I have to change the tail shafts between two th400 transmissions and I really want to give it a try. I have looked all over and maybe I am just missing it but I have yet to find a detailed sequence of steps to follow. . Any suggestions?

Any suggestions?
Crawl magazine had a tech article for exactly what you are doing a month or three back. Mostly it will be a matter of using a few special tools, and cleanliness.

I rebuild a TH400 a few years ago. Only special thing needed was a very large snapring pliers. Other than that standard tools and a shop press was all that was needed.

You want to buy the ATSG manual for a TH400 - about $25 just about anywhere

Well I have a good set of snap ring pliers, and I have access to a shop press. I am kind of excited to give this a shot.
