Video: American Powertrain’s Transmission Install Tool & Seal Protector

Sometimes the best solutions come from simple ideas. American Powertrain is Tremec’s biggest seller, and because of that, physically moves a whole lot of manual transmissions. In that process, the crew at American Powertrain found the cap that most everyone uses to protect the output shaft seal didn’t do much in way of sealing in fluid.

Equally, during installation, customers complained about needing the yoke installed to spin the transmission itself to index the splines into the clutch.

Enter their new Transmission Install Tool and Seal Protector!

This little piece of ABS plastic fits all TKX, TKO and Magnum Tremecs, and perfectly protects the output shaft seal and is perfectly designed to rotate the transmission for installation.

Here’s the original press release:
Keep the fluid in! Our trans seal and install tool is a big help for installing and storing your Tremec TKX, TKO and Magnum. We use these to protect the output shaft seal during shipping. The install tool has splines inside so you can use it to help line up your clutch splines during install.

No more looking around for a yoke or having to use your driveshaft to turn the trans for install. Plus this will keep your transmission full of fluid during service work. If you do a lot of Tremec installs this is a valuable tool!
