    Fun Project for the next couple days

    trans.jpgshift.jpg

    Pulled the trans out of my truck. Time for a rebuild. The old A833 OD has seen better days. Was hoping to get it done today but with some parts not in the kit it will be waiting. It only has 489,000 miles on it.

    I take it you've done this before.

    That's no fun if you don't have a lift.

    I Have done it with Automatics. This will be my first Manual rebuild. Can't be to much different from Industrial gearboxes of which I have rebuilt a few.

    Truck is on a set of ramps and I pulled it on a floor jack. I would love to have a lift.

    Manual should be a breeze. Not that I've done one. I have not. I can only rely on what the locals say.

    Speaking in terms of motorcycle transmissions, they're a lot easier to work on than automatics. In some cases (HD, for example) you need some special disassembly/assembly tools but an enterprising individual can make these in a machine shop if need be.

    I had the same transmission in my 70 Challenger. Nothing odd in it other than the oil pump (front two gears in constant mesh have 3 holes drilled into the counter shaft gear) and the fact that for the cars you use only ATF. Even on my 440 sixpack. Truck might be different. And check your shift forks, I had one break off on me.
    I thought religions were prophet based organizations.
    What do you mean I am out of money? I still have checks!

    Truck calls for 80w90 and unlike your 70 Challenger has an Aluminum case and an Overdrive 4th. I will be pulling the case apart in the morning. Had to order a plug for the countershaft which is only needed on the OD.

    I also had a aluminum OD and bell housing in my 64 Valiant slant 6 conv. Put it in my self. Never had to pull it apart. The cast iron one I did rebuild. I did think long and hard about putting OD gears in the Challenger (4:10 Dana 60) but it is a numbers matching. Not so much the 64.
