GM part number 14082181. This bearing/seal/sleeve for the 282 Muncie/Getrag is no longer available. I have made a suitable replacement.
New Getrag 282 input shaft bearing/seal/sleeve write up:
Since the input bearing/seal/sleeve is no longer available and will probably never be reproduced I found a way to make a substitute. I want to give credit to someone who posted some time ago. He suggested the possibility of using the input bearing/seal from the later internal slave Getrags.
Although it does not work it sparked an idea. I did some research and luckily found a source for around 500-600 of these NOS Getrag bearing/seals. So I had them send me a few to play with. I looked at this for several weeks and one day had an idea. The steel case is hardened but I found it can still be turned in a lathe. Turning one in my lathe I found I could machine the large diameter. The front washer piece now falls off. The smaller you make the diameter the harder the steel becomes. So now I have a bearing/seal and the large OD is much smaller:
To use this modified bearing/seal in the early 282 requires that one counter bore the hole so this bearing can be pressed in to be flush to the underside face. I could sell this kit and tell everyone that you need to take this to a machine shop and have the hole counter bored. I felt that would be a hassle for many. So: I had an idea. I made a tool to be included in each kit. A brazed carbide cutter on a round steel piece. I made a jig to hold the cutter to a very exact dimension. The top flat steel piece controls the depth of cut. You put the tool in the hole and use a ratchet and turn which cuts the counter bore:
You will need to lightly file the top of the hole to debur it.
This modified bearing/seal now needs to be pressed into the aluminum housing bore. To do this correctly one needs a aluminum press piece (included in the kit). This has to be done on a press to insure the bearing is pressed in straight.
So now we need a sleeve:
This is the flange/sleeve pressed together. It will be welded on the back side. It is made of 304 stainless steel.
This sleeve assembly needs to be screwed on to the aluminum housing. So once again this could be done at a machine shop. To make this a do it yourself kit I designed a drill jig. This bolts to the aluminum housing and you drill the six 3.3 mm holes:
Once all 6 holes are drilled they need to be tapped to 4 x 0.7 mm (remove the jig and slightly counter sink the holes first) So you rotate the jig (using a locating pin I supply with the kit) and tap all six holes:
So you now have a new bearing/seal and stainless steel sleeve:
This project took many months. My ME friend and I spent many hours doing the Cad drawings and checking dimensions etc.
This is the kit. It is complete.
The detent cover is reusable. Pound a screwdriver into the middle to remove it. Use silicone or something to seal it back up.
Here is a write up on splitting the case with pictures:
I do not offer free shipping.
Because I use postal flat rate boxes for heavy orders there is no program that can add the proper amount of shipping to every order. So all shipping is added manually by myself after you place your order. That is explained here: Shipping added later explanation
When you place an order the shipping amount will show $0.00. Soon after you place an order you will receive an email confirmation that shows the amount of shipping that was added to your order.
Shipping: $15.00 (USA)
Shipping Note: Shipping cost depends on how much the total order weighs and distance shipped. Once the weight and distances reaches a certain amount I ship these in a USPS Flat Rate box. Shipping for these flat rate boxes starts at $12.95 and at most is $18.500 (USA). I can fit many ball joints and tie rods in one flat rate box along with other items.
Final shipping cost is determined by weight of the item(s) and distance from Milwaukee, WI. Shipping prices quoted are for items shipped to the Midwest area in the USA. If you are ordering a single item or multiple items the total shipping price is determined after you place the order. I try to keep my shipping prices to a minimum and use Postal Flat Rate boxes whenever I can utilize them for an order.
