Read up boys ... Here it goes...

I woke up not long ago and decided I wanted to do it myself.. So I bought the crap and went to work.. Mr. Green

It went a little something like this.....


I started by taking the 7 bolts out of the oil pump...




It wont take a geneous to figure out that I had already pulled the primary gears at this point and set the pump back in but .... Have a poser pic anyway...

Then I just grabbed it on the ridges with Vice grips and bumped the case with a rubber mallet while I pulled on it.. (switching from side to side to make it pull out evenly..)Or you could just use a pulley puller and do it the right way...

Then you remove the front band....
I didnt get a picture but you just loosen the band adjuster and pull out the band.. Its pretty straight forward.. I will try to take a picture of it tommorow as the tranny is still on my custom tranny rebuild table...

Mr. Green Mr. Green

Then pull out the primary assembly..



The assembly comes into two pieces...Open it up..



Here is the secondary assembly .. It pulls out of the primary..



Here is the back side of the primary.



Pull out the lock ring and remove the clutches and spacers.



Put this one aside it needs to go back... (I am talking about the clip.)

OK.. Next..Swap them out making sure to get the right thicknesses and materials.. (Some are double sided ..Pay special attention ...)

New Clutches and spacers in the primary.. (old ones are on the left..)



same for the secondary set..Pull lock ring.



This is the assembly back together.. Old secondary clutches are on the ground.



Then I pulled this lock ring off and inspected the planetary gears..



They look great dont they... Oooooh ....Aaaaaaaah....



took the overdrive unit off and all the tollerances where within spec...
And it requires several special tools.. (And since I have an entire spare tranny just incase I have problems with the overdrive.. Mr. Green ) I decided to leave it alone...

I also did a Transgo shift kit but I dont have any pictures.. Suffice it to say the video and the manual that come with the shift kit is very good and I had no problem following directions...

Now for the most important part.. New Tranny cooler..

Started with a Derale tranny cooler with fan..


And mounted it inside the back of my truck....

I understand most cant do this but I can so.. Finger



And ran the lines..I used all braided stainless since I have a friend in a speed shop that makes custom lines for me.. Mr. Green



And mounted the Tranny temp gauge....



Thats it for now.. Thanks for your attention..

I have a few things to add....

I shouldnt have to say this but I will ... The tranny is very heavy make sure you have a solid work surfice ( I made a cutum table to do this on...) and make sure you have all your parts on a clean surface.. The tranny is very sensitive to dirt.. Be carefull..

Good luck should you decide to take this on.. Its amazingly easier than you might thing..

But you can look at the idiots working in most tranny shops and see that it does not take an Einstein to do this work.. Mr. Green Mr. Green [/img]

Where did you pick up the transgo shift kit?

My tran is about done, it's going up to about 4k RPM before shifting into third. Sad

I'm obviously wanting to get a different trans in asap, do you have any recommendations on what I should look for at the bone yard? Anything that should catch my eye and scare me away from the trans?

Thanks

the host for those pics closed down... I will look around in my old puter and see if I can find them..
but I think they where lost with the old Windows lappy that died on me a while back..

I will look around my old desktop when I get home on Thursday..

Sorry.. They where good pics to.. Very detailed and made it pretty simple to rebuild a tranny...

rofl

Sorry I couldnt help myself..
