I have a feeling there is something obvious that im missing here, but this has been a long project and I need to eat something, so I'm getting frustrated.
I've got the transmission hanging from an engine hoist. It's a JDM 1997 4EAT that is off a 2.5l car, but is supposed to have a 4.11 ratio. I want to check the front diff visually before I commit to installing it.
I pulled the drain plug, and marked the tooth in front of me with a sharpie. What is the detailed, correct technique for getting that gear to turn so I can count teeth? I've tried a couple things that made sense to me, but nothing that has made the gear seem to move.
I'm gonna go get food, thanks for reading.
