Hi guys
Im new around here so i don't know how this works but hopefully I'll get someone to help me out. 🤞
I have a 2000 166 with a 3.0 busso. Because of engine failure i decided to swap out the engine for a new one. Since i found a parts car i decided to swap it out together with the transmission. And I ran into a veeery interesting problem. I bought the engine and transmission separated, and i put them together before installing however, just for testing i put the transmission in gear and turn the engine by hand. The axles turn as they should, but when i turn the axles they spin freely and the engine doesn't turn at all. I changed the clutch set completely if that helps. So i have no clue if the transmission is ok and i don't want to install anything before I'm certain everything's fine. Can anyone tell me if this is normal??

Hi
Thank you for the reply!
I feel a bit silly now that I realised they have an open diff.
My idea was that just like in bump starting you could turn the engine through the axles and i was turning just one of them. When i tried to turn them both in the same direction it was hard to turn them just like you said! The transmission turns out to be perfectly fine. Thank you for the info! I really appreciate it.
