take the nuts off on the nose cone and pull the nose cone off. Clean the gasket surfaces and install a new gasket. Put the new nose cone on with the hockey stick pulled out to get the hockey stick into the gear selectors. Slide the nose cone onto the studs on the trans case and torque to spec. My chilton said 11 ft/lbs so thats what value i used. I used gasgacinch on the mating surfaces and the gasket. Make sure the gear selectors are even or in neutral position.

Transmission shift forks in "neutral" position. All 3 slots are in line and the same height.

When installing a nosecone on the tranny, make sure the shift rod moves smoothly in the nosecone bushings with no binding or tight spots. Lower the shift rod out of the bottom of the nosecone to engage the shift forks on the transmission. Also make sure the tranny is in "neutral", and that the end of the shift rod engages the forks while lowering the nosecone onto the transmission.
