Long story short,
My V160 was whining in 3rd gear when I let go of the gas. The previous owner rebuilt it at a shop.
Anyway I disassembled the transmission to check if there's anything that need to be changed, and also install the new bullet mid case.
As I was assembling the transmission, I found that the output shaft needle bearing was missing. I purchased a new one and as I was trying to install the 6th gear it won't go in. So I heated the 6th gear and tried again, but still it won't go in.
I removed the bearing, and the 6th gear went in perfectly and fitted with the counter gear with no problem.

My question is, should I install the 6th gear without the bearing or there is something wrong or missing with the transmission???

Please help

I’d send a PM to “swing lo” and/or “carchitect”. They are the resident V160 specialists.

have you tried installing the bearing into the gear then sliding the whole thing on? i just had this same exact problem with my r154, ended up just needing to make sure the needles wernt popping out any while sliding the gear on. its a pretty tight clearance, any misalignment would cause it not to slide on.

No it's not like that.
I just found out what is the problem.

The previous owner rebuilt the transmission at a shop, and looks like the shop didn't bother to look for the needle bearing, so he press fitted the inner diameter of the 6th gear with a brass bushing.

I tried to fit the bearing in the gear it won't fit.

I have to remove the bushing for it to fit the bearing.

Can anyone give me the exact inside diameter of the 6th gear??
