Verifying gearing?

Postby underscore » Wed Apr 15, 2015 4:01 am

So the shop got the engine and trans dropped out of the RC, now I can see that every seam on the trans has orange FIPG coming out of it so I know it was completely taken apart at some point (most likely in Japan). Is there any way for me to verify that it's an RC transmission and if I pop it apart is there any way for me to verify that it has the correct gearing in there? Or do I just have to hope that I have the correct trans and gearing?

When it's back on the road you could compare RPM and speed with another RC tranny owner.

That would work if I could find one nearby, unfortunately I want to know before the trans goes back in so I don't have to rip it out again if somebody messed with the gears.

Go to eBay and do a search for "3sgte engine" and look at the pics that include the manual trans. I think you'll find that they all come with high temp RTM squeezed out of all the seems.

Both of my ST165s do.

Good point, can anyone confirm if FIPG was what they used in the factory?

If I recall, mine had orange sealant oozed out of the seams.

Toyota FIPG comes in two types - black and orange/red. Orangey one is used on transmissions for the most part. They are different if you crack them open, but you'd have to know what you are looking for. I had both an E150F and E151F apart side by side last summer, but don't really recall the specifics, other than there were definitely differences on the inside... :/
