The early years had an integral shifter tower that fixed the fulcrum height i. The four-pocket, dual-damper spring clutch disc had non-asbestos friction material and was about 11 inches in diameter. When I start driving it normal, I will post results. And so you have to study the construction and take measurements. Not to hijack the thread but thanks for the good word. This results in decreased shift effort and greater synchronizer durability.
Other leaks, where components meet, could be due to problems with the sealer or incorrect bolt tightening. For two-wheel drive, it had a long output shaft and rear case; the four-wheel-drive version had a short output shaft and rear case. The outer casing goes through an extensive process of conditioning to give it that factory luster you would expect from this type of elite product. Answer: 2 From your description I would suspect that the engagement hub has sheered off the gear, this is what the synchronizer slider would lock onto that allows it to pull in 2 nd gear. The additional letter codes as follows: Muncie 3 speed Manual Muncie 4 speed manual transmissions Suffix 1st gear ratio A 3. Probably overkill but I am very fanatic about my maintenance and do a fair bit of towing so I figure it cant hurt! Must shove the clutch almost through the floor in order to shift. Further Muncie identification 3 Muncie 4 speeds were offered.
On the Dodge Ram, the shift lever extension had a square bore that snapped over the transmission shift lever when pressed down. The most noticeable difference is the location of the shift lever tower that extends the shift lever through the vehicle floor and into the passenger compartment. Well it sure appears to be the same trans. Here are a few other items that will help you lock it down. All of these transmissions use a similar shifter interface, varying only in receptacle height.
A reverse synchronizer and a slight offset between two shift gates prevented shifting to reverse while moving forward; it used a nine-degree cone angle and would clash if a shift to reverse about 5 mph was attempted. Finer pitch placed more teeth in mesh at the same time, distributing the loads to reduce noise. I also would like to ad that the guys at the shop were real easy to deal with on the phone. As these parts are interchangeable, it is quite possible for them to be mixed and found in the wrong model after a rebuild. Pretty steep first gear if I remember correctly.
Answer 1 We assume your transmission is the late model 1991 version with the second-generation shifter, this model has a stamped steel reaction plate around the shift pod under the shifter assembly that controls the shifter. In the constant-mesh transmission, all gears were constantly in mesh with each other, but none transmitted torque until a synchronizer was engaged — no need to move gears together to engage. Consult a transmission shop before going further. I tried to google different years of Chevy interiors to see if the shifter was associated with a certain year but no dice. If you need help, just call the drivetrain experts 1-888-824-2012. This is important because if stub depth is not correct, the shifter will not work properly and could bind or even cause damage.
Weight was further reduced with the use of a one-piece, aluminum-casting clutch housing and front case. This can all be done without removing the transmission. No aftermarket support as far as replacement parts or better shifters that I know of. Worn synchro rings can result in gear clash when going into forward gears though they can stick somewhat in new or recently rebuilt transmissions, leading to hard or noisy shifting, which gets better as the rings wear in. The fellow emailed me some pictures of it, but none of the tags appear to be on it. After a lot of pulling and pushing on the gear shift I got it into reverse and backed in. United States Army Drill Sergeant J.
I probably could have pushed it a little more to the 465 range, but I can't afford to chance it. Applications Important: These are believed to be the applications but some of these vehicles may have variants, e. I haven't let my truck get too low on gas lately since the change. The M-21 has a higher pitch angle on its gear teeth. Every unit must be thouroughaly tested to be worthy of the Smart Parts name. Hard shifting, noise, wear, and internal binding are usually caused by lubricant issues — dirty gear oil, low levels, or the wrong lubricant. We have the answers you need.
Between the shift lever and the extension, a rubber isolator kept transmission noise and vibration from entering the passenger compartment. Distinguished by waffling structural ribs on the sides. I am still driving the truck like I stole it to break it in with the air charger. Whether this was due to Daimler desires or functional considerations is unknown. Loosen the drain plug and again, have your drain pan ready. The transmission came with a round rubber mount that had a single stud mount on the bottom. After buying a Smart Parts transmission I'm starting to like my truck again.
He said he is going to look today and see if he can find one, should be on top of the bellhousing? For 1997 Dakotas, a high-efficiency clutch hydraulic system provided smoother pedal operation, using higher internal pressure for greater precision, reduced hysteresis the difference in operating force between release and engagement , and started engagement closer to the floor. When it shifts from 1st to 2nd its got a really smooth shift and it puts a smile on your face. Its internal components were also lighter, resulting in easier shifts and a total 100 lb weight savings. I'm going to put one behind my stock 350 in a 55 Chevy half ton. You guys pretty well have it covered correctly. The transmission had a clutch-starter interlock system to prevent the engine from starting while the clutch was engaged; it had a non-adjusting clutch pedal position switch on the clutch master cylinder push rod and was wired in series with the ignition switch and starter relay coil. When you install the clutch be sure you install the disc properly, you would not believe how many people get it backwards.
