Now, if somebody else has a question about these particular vintage Fords and their trannies, they can search for this post. I only installed one, could that have anything to do with my problems? But the tranny had slippage problems and the motor smoked like a mosquito fogger. Did they have 3spd autos? In Broncos and F150s, behind 4. The rings on the front pump are for the forward and reverse clutch packs. It may be worth a shot to remove the plugs then try and crank it over. This picture shows that the length from bellhousing face to tran.
So you may not need new driveshafts. The whole thing basically ran, but the motor smoked like crazy. Finally, when these rings are wearing it is often due to damage or wear in the ring grooves on the stator support that they ride in. . These transmissions are old enough that finding one with lower than 80,000 miles is very difficult, so the price is a rough average of what is available.
I would like to have overdrive, being that it is my daily driver and it would be used to tow a small trailer to the desert. The truck runs now, but won't move. Nobody in his r her right mind would ever intentionally convert to one. I was getting a buck a mile for 5 states work related travel, so mine was actually paid for - kind of - in the first year. The tall tire issue is especially tough if you have a ceramic clutch- it will chatter your teeth out starting in second and hop like a rabbit in first. If the transmission has always done this you may be able correct it with our valve body kit alone, or maybe the valve body kit and the A+ Overdrive servo.
When I try to rev the engine it doesn't grab the next gear. Look at the transmission pan and note the shape and the number of bolts. Remember, the need for close ratio spacing in diesel trucks is the reason why most semi- trucks have 9-18 gears! If you have Microsoft Excel or Open Office, I can email you a spreadsheet that has really handy calculators to help you see how different gear ratio combinations will work for you. I'm still thinking you destroyed the pump on the transmission, and it's now locked up. So as soon as we get the donor stuff, we will just spend a day or two and swap it all over.
Were you able to spin the torque converter freely after you tightened all the trans to engine bolts? When considering swapping a manual trans in your truck to replace an automatic, or even putting a lift kit and tall tires on your manual trans truck, beware of gear ratio drawbacks. He finally covinced his roommate to let me take over. Even simpler than taking out the spark plugs, which you shouldn't have to do to turn the motor over. The output shaft uses a large U-joint but if you have to remake the driveshaft anyway - and you probably will, that may not be much of an issue. The plug on the top of the transmission is the backup lamp and neutral safety switch. If you have 37 tires and a 3. There was a plug on top of the transmission when I pulled it out of the 85 Ford, what does that do? They are not as easy to find as the others listed here, and I'm not overly impressed with the gear ratios.
Even if the torque converter is put back in wrong, I don't think that would stop it from turning over. The motor is a no go, but I haven't seen what we might be able to do with the tranny. When swapping a Dodge transmission into a Fordcummins truck, the builder should seriously consider using a hybrid transfer case with a fixed rear yoke. My aod will not shift into od. No matter what engine you have, these wide ratio changes result in poorer fuel economy, and require the engine to work harder when pulling heavy loads. When I take off it stay's stuck in first.
If the two ratios are similar, a higher axle ratio can be used to idealize the drivetrain efficiency. My point is if your going to keep it, do it right. One would expect to see a lower reverse ratio with the low 1st gear as well, but it is not as low as it should be. That's why your engine won't turn over. We are looking for the ease of just swapping something else in rather than the costs of rebuilds. The only time the rings are under more pressure with our kit installed is in third gear. We also offer an upgraded version of this shaft.
I checked the pump again when i took it back out an all checks out. This thread is a bit ancient, has anyone here used the transmissioncenter. In the United States, this variant has been the best-selling vehicle for 24 years and the best-selling truck for 34 years. All the transmissions listed are high level builds, and core charges are added to the price. Now you're saying you can't get the motor to turn over? An when i put it. I know absolutley nothing about these '80s Fords.
Well I took the torque converter off and put it on the transmission, and bolted everything back up. If your truck is geared right and you don't mind shifting gears, manual transmissions are fine, however they do typically have wider ratio spacing that can be very annoying and not so efficient when pulling a heavy load in hilly country. I also replaced the starter yesterday cause my old one would just spin not pop out. The guy is pretty ornery and particular and makes it sound like he has done a lot of work when all he has done is disconnect the driveshaft, the sensors and some wires from the tranny and motor. Building a custom car or truck includes putting together a drivetrain that's suited for your application, and one of those key aspects is the transmission. When you pull the tranny you'll need to rotate the torque converter as you install it. No highway benefit is realized, and the difference in the gear ratio splits is not much of a benefit.
My friend has one thats been sitting for a year or so and would like to get it on the road. Sorry man, but that's the problem. It has 6 pinion planetaries and hydraulic accumulation for all shift events. C6: Rectangular pan that has 17 bolts. When you took the trans out to double check everything, did you see the two little notches on the transmision pump that the torque converter tangs fit into to turn the pump? Either way, you'll most probably need new driveshafts to compensate for the different lengths, so be sure to get those from the donor vehicle as well. If the 1-2 shift valve is stuck, and will not stroke, the transmission will not shift out of first gear. Just had it rebuilt at a transmission shop that also works on drag racing trannies.
