Long Overdue Obligatory Post Part 3: Transmission

Rate this Entry
In addition to overhauling the engine, I also needed to replace the clutch and wanted to replace the transmission. My old 18 spline transmission would pop out of reverse, grinded 2 and 3 every time and the output shaft was shot. The bright side, was my tcase blew out on the highway (not the bright part) and Dodge was forced to replace it with a brand new unit under the recall. I sold these to Pampena.

I knew the clutch needed to be replaced, when I got it all disassembled, I saw how bad it really was:



Clearly the clutch was worn out and had way less than the recommended amount of space between the surface and the rivets.

of course, the pressure plate had seen better days as well:




Couldn't find any specs on how much I could take off of the flywheel, and it looked pretty worn so I ended up replacing it:




Ended up going with a Comp Flywheel (14lb version) and a Clutchmaster clutch.


I also smoothed the selector shaft for the transmission I was putting in, as the corners were definitely hanging on the cage.
