Default gasket on top of transmission?

Hey Y'all,

I'm trying to replace the transmission in the samurai I got last week. The new (to me) transmission arrived today, and I managed to get the old one out. The new one does not have the piece on top that the shifter goes into, just the square hole for it with 4 bolt holes around it.

Is there a gasket I need to go between these two pieces? If not, should I use some type of gasket material, liquid, or silicone? Or do they just bolt right together? I took the piece off the transmission I removed and I can't really tell if there was one on there. Kinda look slike there was, kinda doesn't.

I think I'm going to have to cut that notch in the crossmember I've seen recommended to get this thing back in there, it was a real hassle getting it out.

Thanks in advance

Just used blue form a gasket on mine.
Loosened the motor mounts to get that tiny bit of space.
good luck.

Yup, gasket in a tube works wonders for the shift tower. And here is a shot of how far I cut my trans mount back before replacing it completely with a high clearance mount.

Do you have a link to the high clearance transmission mount?

I have yet to install my transmission since I was gone all weekend, but I did grind down my mount a bit. Less than yours so I may take some more off of it before I try to put the transmission back in.

A couple other questions I have come up with-

What type of tool do you use for the pilot bearing? I decided to leave the one that was in there because it felt fine, and I couldn't get the old one out. The bearing puller I bought was too big, and the one I borrowed from Advance was, too.

Also, how do you install the throwout/clutch release bearing? I managed to get the old one off by twisting and pulling about as hard as I could, but can't get my new one on. I broke one yesterday trying to bend the little arm the pin goes through with pliers and had to run out and buy a new one. Going to reattempt to install it tonight, hopefully theres some trick that i'm missing

Sure. It is made by Rock4XFabrication.
High Clearance Trans Mount
Looks like their site is going through a rebuild, but the links in the article work. They have moved their shop since the article was written, but you can contact them through the site to get current pricing.

Oh, the pilot bearing.
I usually drop the flywheel and tap it out with a hammer, then reinstall with a brass drift. The throwout bearing is a little trickier but it will come out with a little twisting. I always thought of it like a puzzle that you had to turn just right to get it to release. Sorry if that isn't much help, but it always seemed to work for me.
