The 4L80E came thirty years later in the 1990s. So if everything is in great shape except the reverse drum and band that reverse servo could very well be the problem. Heavy duty pump welded steel torque converter better clutch packs. I heard the newer ones use a different pressure solenoid that would have to be change so my brain can work. The remainder of the truck is immediately removed from the property and sent to the local crusher.
Dont do it like the guy in the video who has done a couple thousand of these things. Stage 2 was just a harder hitting clutch series. And I did know the 4l80e is based on a th400. Usually the one dog breaks. I have to get it right the first time. Of course road conditions will dictate that and is the reason I stated it's done on a case by case basis and it's up to the operator to know what is warranted and when.
After fixing this, I finished installing the transmission no problem. I try to make my runs longer, to reduce my reverse cycles. Speaking of proper tools, there are many tools specified for use in the rebuild process that I made do without. Waa Laa my first clue is I found a small O-ring seal. After draining the fluid out of the transmission the pan was removed along with the filter.
In fact a 4L80E is basically an electronically controlled Turbo 400 with the extra components to have an overdrive gear. This is the transmission that off-roaders, big horse power streeters and racers have been waiting for. All Monster transmissions are thoroughly inspected, blue printed and tested to ensure that your investment is completely flawless. I am still playing with that alto site but I think I found the kit you installed. We are dedicated to giving you the technical support you need, when you need it! I have a dozen full rebuilds of mostly small blocks under my belt so I can turn a wrench and follow directions. Is that only good to do for long runs or Drives too???? My truck is a C2500 long bed standard cab 2 wheel drive with a 5.
Besides some light clutch debris and metal filings in the pan, the only problem I found with the trans was a blown output shaft seal. I am posting here to share in my adventure to take on the part of a vehicle myself and many others no little of. They are not meant for heavy duty work like the 4l80E, thats why alot of plow guys with 1500 pick-ups have problems unless they baby them. When installing the torque converter onto the transmission input shaft, I noticed it seemed to sit too far forward. And stage 5 will be all out race. A better solution is the 4L80e transmission.
Not only is he a gear head, but he also holds two Bachelors degrees from Cal State San Bernardino. That way you can have it built to how you drive and work it, not just plain jane out of the box. It will be closer to a grand after I figure in my lost time helping install the new one. Just to add more info to the reverse servo and if I am reading this right? I tried to argue with them, saying that if something mechanical were broken, it would fail all the time, not some of the time. A failure of the pressure control valve or whatever it is called and or the high pressure valve in the pump assembly. I also and researching if I do go ahead with this tranny rebuild if I should replace the aluminum piston or can I go with the other type Bonded steel type piston.
A 60E is like the newer fully electronic version of the old 700R4 in much the same way I mentioned that the 80E's are the newer electronic version of the venerable Turbo 400's. After finishing assembly, the transmission should have been ready to go. And I kind of have a better idea what the term stage means and posted a brief description below. Yep no faith in my sticking behind there products Ive had experience with a gm tranny that actually made a car catch fire. The only other real cause for converter slippage is the clutch linking being worn in the converter itself, but as long as you don;t work the converter hard as it's trying to hold you'll add no additional wear to it so it should last until you're ready to rebuild the entire trans. It only took the Doctor a day to rebuild this transmission, as he has the right parts and experience to rebuild this with his eyes closed.
I am concerned with how easy reverse went out and would like to address that problem but not sure of my options on making it stronger are yet? The difference between dismantlers and the local yard all come down to how vehicles are ingested and the organization structure in place. It probably popped out at you when you removed the 3 bolts holding it down. The last step was to slip on a new torque converter. Disassembly began by stripping down all the components and inspecting for wear and breakage. The last owner of my truck replaced this transmission but it was new and never had the upgrades done to it.
Doctor Steve made sure to check for excessive wear and breakage. I have had a problem with a jasper trans and they gave another tranny, paid labor, and even paid for new fluid. As in, take once apart, and put it back together before moving onto the next one. Even though I had no reverse, I decided to take a test drive, and was happy to find every other gear working properly. I also realize until I get mine all apart I won't really know what parts I may end up needing? Everything was looking beautiful until the last clutch pack. Next came installing the thing. I must try to find problems to be able to fix it.
Sure it somewhat worked, but if we wanted to do more than drive from one side of the parking lot to another, it would need a full rebuild. . A re-manufactured transmission also comes with a : three years compared to 90 days for a rebuilt transmission. The 80e in stock form can handle a pretty good amount of ass kicking so most dont need anything over stock replacement.
