. All of the synchronizers are the latest revisions, with 3rd and 4th featuring a carbon fiber facing. But fortunately, Ford made small upgrades to the six-speed manual with the passing of time. The , meanwhile gets a different diaphragm spring and cover, thus raising torque capacity and improving the feel of the clutch pedal. Most likely the high rpm lock out is a compound problem of worn parts inside the unit along with flex in the drivetrain and the damages has occurred progressively before and during your attempts to remedy it with aftermarket parts. All of the rebuild work goes through our sister company Texas Motorsports. It matches engine power to vehicle needs.
The heavily ribbed cast aluminum case serves as the home for fully synchronized 5 forward gears and reverse and features a 10-spline input shaft with a 28-spline output shaft. This is where the after market pads we offer vastly improved durability of the unit. That appears to be a failure to the welding process attaching the two pieces together. Mike, thanks for the photos. But, then they are drained before shipment. If you look closely, you can see the bronze pads installed. As for cost to build the units.
The best part is that this bracket works with most aftermarket short throw shifters and the factory shifter. The power is transmitted through a driver-operated clutch, which allows for engagement and disengagement of the engine to the transmission. My suggestion is that if you determine a cooler is needed, search out others who've successfully done it and can provide you the properly matched cooler to fit the needs. Corvette went to a cooling option in the T56 in the C6 cars. And for anyone who is continually trying to get their quarter-mile times down, this is the fix for you! Any usage or mentions of these terms throughout our website and print ads are used for identification purposes only. Once Gearbox is built it is then Dyno-Tested on our one of 3 Transmission Dynos we have at our disposal. The output shaft is a robust 31-spline.
The reverse fork was also updated in 1998 and there are three different versions available. Late Model Restoration has no affiliation with Ford Motor Company, Roush Enterprises, or Saleen. There have been three different ratio variations over the years. Gear ratios for the M-7003-Z Heavy Duty T5 Mustang Manual Transmission are: 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th Reverse 2. The transmission uses gears to adapt the torque to the demands of load and road conditions. Then you have a big gap to fourth for the straightaways.
Aftermarket support is plentiful for this transmission, so there are an abundance of upgrade parts available to make the T56 handle whatever you may throw at it. It has the 93 Cobra style input pocket bearing and is already equipped with a steel input bearing retainer. Saleen is a registered trademark of Saleen Incorporated. Truck Freight Charge varies by Location of Customer. Gear ratios for the T56 are: Year 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th Reverse 2003-2004 Cobra 2. This added a much better syncronizer design, wide-ratio gearset, needle bearings for 1st, 2nd and 3rd speed gears, and improved metallurgy throughout.
The combination of the Barton Shifter and Blowfish Bracket allowed our Product Specialist, Bill Tumas, to power our project car through the 1320 foot marker at a best of 11. The Ford Mustang has offered both a manual transmission and automatic transmission option from 1979 all the way to 2014. Then again, the 10-speed automatic co-developed with General Motors is the real party piece of the 2018 Mustang, be it the Coyote or EcoBoost. In 1989, the metallurgy was once again improved on the 2nd Speed Gear, 3rd Speed Gear, and Countershaft Cluster Gear. There were many variations over the years, so stick with me here. The 26-spline input shaft allows for much greater power handling. The output yoke is a fixed design, but the input shaft is an oddball 23-spline.
Torque is transferred to the countershaft drive gear and is delivered along the countershaft to all the countershaft gears. This power is delivered from the engine flywheel, to the transmission. Ford Authority is a must-read for , , , and information about Ford and Lincoln vehicles. Not all of them, though. But just as the Coyote , inheriting dual-injection and the 5. The 3-4 shift fork was updated in 1998 thru 2001 and is a common upgrade for 1996-97.
I think any type of driving that requires quick gear changes will accelerate the wear and eventually fail a part, which in return could damage more parts. My clutch failure was due to heat, which caused the hub to fail. It is transferred through the input shaft to the drive gear. They are the least desirable of the V8 T5 transmissions as the gear metallurgy, synchronizer design, and bearing arrangement were based on old technology. With innovative vehicle systems and consequent vehicle safety and dynamics, making sure drivers and passengers arrive at home safely and have fun getting there.
Now that those parts are in place, a fresh transmission should hold up fairly well as long as the clutch is properly bled of air before driving it hard. The contact number for them is 210-887-7615 and you can check out their work also on Facebook. Adding a Barton Short Throw Shifter and Blowfish Bracket will help alleviate any notchiness or uncertainty in your shifts and get you down the quarter quicker than ever. They uses a mechanical pump driven off the cluster gear to pump fluid out of the unit, into a cooler and back into the unit. I have not encountered this issue yet but have seen it in other similar designed gears for other units. From clutch springs to oil viscosity, bolt types to gear finishes, most defects have been adressed.
In this article, we'll cover the manual transmissions that were factory equipment behind V8 Mustang engines. The transmission then uses a system of mainshaft gears to change the speed and torque relationship between the engine crankshaft and the transmission output shaft. Because of the added length of the T56, a shorter than normal driveshaft was used in the 03-04 Cobra. The 3650 can be retrofitted to T45 applications if a Speed-Cal is used to compensate for the difference in speedometer signals. For example, there is a small amount of deflection in both the semi-remote mount linkage and flimsy shifter bracket which can result in unwanted missed shifts under load. The transmission input shaft receives the power when the clutch is engaged.
