Jim, I have not tried this on my car but seeing the slotted connection at the side of the diaphragm, can the aluminum housing and leather diaphragm be lifted up out of the car without taking the cross shaft housing off the gearbox?????

As a follow up on the last posting I had to remove the cross shift cylinder and diaphragm to fit the speedo drive. The slotted connection adjacent to the leather diaphragm allows the unit to be removed without taking the cross shaft housing off the gearbox.

Terry, could you explain how you did this? It feels like I'm a 1/4 of inch too tight when I pull the diaphram to the left, even with the shaft as far to the right as it will go - looking from the front.

Keep the aluminum housing close to the leather diaphragm. Just separate the leather from the cast iron cross shaft housing and try pulling it upwards. The slotted joint should separate. The slot may have been relocated check the drawing I posted earlier on page 1 of this topic.
If this does not work do as Jim suggested take the whole cross shaft assembly off the gearbox.

As much as I tried I could not get the housing and diaphragm to slide off so I ended up removing the entire cross shift assembly. I have a new bushing for that anyways so it would have had to come off to replace that.

Once on the bench, it was still tough for me to slide the diaphragm off. I've given the assembly to a shop to do the replacement. It took me so long because I needed to get a 12 point 1/2 inch socket with extra thin walls to get at the #4 bolt. I didn't want to turn down one of my good Snap On sockets.

I took pictures of the different bolts sizes. There seems to be 3 different lengths. Numbered clockwise starting in the upper left corner looking at the front of the transmission.
