Go4DaMo Posted July 23, 2015 Report Share Posted July 23, 2015 Let's address the elephant in the room here for some of us die-hard 5-speed lovers. The 284 is extinct. I feel it's appropriate to have a thread dedicated to options we owners have in servicing the transmissions. I'm currently experiencing an input shaft seal leak that's causing my clutch to slip more every day. I'm vigorously searching for a solution to this. Here's what I've found thus far concerning this seal w/my application, a 92 Lumina: GM Part #: 14092900 Status - Discontinued. No NOS in inventory nationwide. Cross-referencing this part number through Timken's downloadable PDF yielded a replacement part, 2003N, which is available at AutoZone. I have this part ordered to come in Saturday. I haven't confirmed it will work, but will post when I know for sure. Also, the forum member with the 284 2nd gen gold Impala mentioned on his Instagram possibly having his 284 machined to accept an off-the-shelf input shaft seal. I haven't heard back from him to confirm if that's the route he took. Who knows what about axle seal replacement with this trans? I've been told they're available & told they can't be found. Thanks, everyone...& as the old dogs say at the track... "If you ain't got a clutch, you ain't got much!" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
