I got the new sonnax rear bushing in. It makes the world of a difference, zero wiggle now. Also went and got a new bolt for the valve area
The bushing went in the correct way and is lined up with feed port. I will pull the trans cooler off my parts truck. And start cleaning ports and output shaft. I will make the call to the pan patch at around 3Pm. If I finish those tasks what should I be thinking about next?Did you make sure that the correct end of the bushing is facing forward in case as indicated on the bushing? Did you align the oil feed port in bushing with port in the case.
You need to thoroughly wash out the lube passages in the output shaft and blow out with compressed air.
You need to do the same with all passages in the case.
You need to can the manufacturer of the stuff you used to glue the case at the bypass tube. Ask them if it will hold up to ATF and that kind of heat. Most epoxy based fixes will not.
You need to take your radiator out to get trans cooler in it flushed.
You need to order a new auxiliary trans cooler. Old one can’t be flushed.
Ok. I will get a new one I was just hoping to save a little as the other cooler never had a bad trans mated to it. Any particular brand or anything works as long as it’s new?You should be thinging about a new trans cooler. I would never use a used trans cooler on a rebuilt trans. That's just asking to do the work all over again.
Shop was booked today I will try and get to it tomorrowProgress report?
I don’t have anywhere to get it flushed. All transmission shops tell me they are booked out to next month. I have some air tools I could possibly use to try and do it myselfAnswer my above questions. You told Mark that you ordered a new auxiliary cooler ( which was necessary) but why would you buy a new engine radiator, rather than just get the trans cooler section of it flushed?
