Well after 6 months of no vibrations I started to get one at highways speeds. But that looseness will cause the bands to wear more and prematurely. Thought I'd throw some details into the discussion. Hate for it to be that because I know that's a pain to deal with. Tighten lock nut to torque spec diff for each bolt That's it you do that for each screw and you are good : Basically if you bands are not adjusted correctly your transmission will not shift like it should and will cause premature band wear. I would make a quick check of the slip yoke transfer case end lateral movement.
I like your gut comparison to the Ford Powerstroke that lost its clutch and flywheel harmonic dampening with the solid flywheel and clutch install. On 4x4 front axle shaft steering joints or any high load joint, a permanently sealed cross-type joint is required. Repeat the process here as you did inside the pan. In both the direct and forward drum, we see deflection and side loading contribute to repeated failures daily. I was going to try adjusting the band to try to see if I could make it better that way and my question is how much should I back it off? After playing around with some shims I finally decided it was the drive shaft itself causing the problems. If you register as a member and submit a donation to the website, the advertising amount is reduced the more you donate. These can also be built with custom transbrakes, as well.
Is it possible this bearing is going out? You have a 6-inch lift on the truck, and I'll share some pointers here. This is alleviated by simply changing the material that is much more resistant to wear. I have a new gauge on the way. Remove the fender so you can easily get at the adjustors with the door closed. U-joint life suffers, and failure of joints is often common. I'm pretty sure I can hear a stretched out chain in the transfer case slapping around.
Inspect the differential gears for play, too. Thank you, for understanding and whitelisting Mopar1973Man. If the front band does not release the 2nd gear clutches before the third gear clutches engage, the transmission binds, which shortens the life of the transmission clutches. Loosen band adjusting screw locknut. This kit had a o-ring for the plug seal, only no groove to retain the o-ring when you tightened it, so I replaced it with a fiber washer.
That's the time to make remedy. This servo is also larger in apply area - over 20% larger than the factory. The factory, through all of the engineering they have done, somehow thought it would be a good idea to put a plastic accumalator piston in this unit. This one is external of the pan. Is looser better with a Kevlar band? There are some people that remove the servo pistons and add length to the pin, however this is not a good idea. The release of the band can be just as important if not more. However, there does seem to be and excessive amount of play on the pinion shaft going into the rear end.

All this considered, I went from bad vibrations to no vibrations. This driveshaft has a massive damper at the slip yoke end transfer case , which apparently does nothing to prevent vibration. At this point you can pull gently on the stamped retainer and the governor solenoid will pop out of the base,since its held in a slot in the retainer. Not sure what to look at next. I personally like using a beam type wrench so that I can see it coming up on it's final torque, and I also back off the torque values by 10% since it's a worn in band- right or wrong that's my opinion only.
Remove the transmission pan after draining. This Actuator has replaced the previous Throttle Valve Cable and all associated linkage. There are two bands in this transmission, one is … for rev. Let us know how it goes. During the last round of transmission updates we did spec as many things as we could during the build. Trust me its way cheaper and easier to work on the T-case than that transmission again lol.
Our next focus is with the hydraulic integrity of this band's actuation. We were test driving , and I could see his eyes glaze over. Take the time right now and on the Mopar1973Man. It can be used with clips on various components or with a metal direct probe pickup. With now having a more apply pressure on the band, we must correct our issue with the factory band strut, as well. This is strictly a function of U-joints: steeper angles make the joint weaker.
Does the planetary overdrive really make that much difference? It can even tear apart the driveshaft since the speed-up and slow down over the U-joint arcs of travel run at different cycles. So something like a degree or so of angle can be magnified into a bigger problem. All u-joints feel tight and the carrier bearing and bushing seem solid. On every one of our Competition transmissions, we simply replace the factory direct drum with a full billet one. Angles should cancel, and if they don't you have a ripe candidate for vibration and stress.
