If you point the seal lip toward the intermediate clutches, you will have an internal hydraulic leak and no intermediate clutch function. Although there were virtually no engineering changes to this pump during its production life, there are variations in this casting number, depending upon when it was cast. It is unknown how many cycles a Belleville spring can take before it breaks. Step 6: Stack Intermediate Clutch Steels and Frictions The intermediate clutch discs and plates stack up like this. This allows for proper seating and prevents warping. Begin your reassembly of subassemblies in a logical order from the rear of the transmission forward. Also attach cooler lines and tighten to 12 ft.
Take note of how the rollers fit into the cage. Too much line pressure and you can break the transmission case. Step 6: Install Reverse Clutch Pressure Plate Install the reverse clutch pressure plate against the Belleville spring. All are accessed by pulling the pan and valve body. This feature offers non-slip direct drive in fourth gear overdrive and to some degree in third gear as well. There should be nine springs in serviceable condition free of distortion. Step 11: Install Output Shaft Sealing Rings Four iron sealing rings install on the output shaft.
Further enhancements come from the Baumannator Electronic Transmission Control System, which enables you to fine-tune shift performance. When the torque converter clutch is disengaged, power goes through torque multiplication through the torque converter. Pressure against the seal lip is self-sealing and fail-safe. Wet frictions allow for more accurate clearances during assembly. Use an abundance of transmission assembly lube. This converter is a perfect choice for mild bolt on cars or cars that have choppy cams and need a converter with a good stall speed. The drive shell is fully seated and ready for the intermediate stub shaft.
Direct Clutch Assembly Step 1: Install Direct Clutch Piston Seals When removing the old direct clutch piston seals, observe the seal installation and lip direction. Step 7: Install Forward Clutch Steels Alternate the forward clutch plates with clutch friction discs. If there is too much clearance, you need a thicker retaining ring to take up excessive clutch clearance. My trans has been built it uses a none lockup converter an a manual valve body. Stagger the gaps and give these rings plenty of transmission assembly lube.
Step 8: Install Forward Clutch Discs Install the forward clutch frictions alternately between the steels. Do not get this backward. Inspect input shaft for wear and burrs. What about the relative torque handling capacity of those two trannies? Face of transmission flange must be flush with engine all the way around before any bolts are tightened. Slowly walk the tool around, protecting the seal lip.
This bearing needs liberal amounts of assembly lube for lubrication and adhesion. I had this installed on my 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis. Work the sun gear drive shell back and forth to seat. With this sequence of events, pressure goes to the forward clutch pack through the orifice control valve and the 2-3 backout valve. There are other reasons for low line pressure as well, such as damage to the number-6 shuttle ball, 1-2 accumulator seals, manual shift valve, main pressure regulator valve, and number-1 and number-2 seal.
Step 2: Assemble and Install Intermediate One-Way Clutch Documentation Required This is the intermediate one-way clutch, which is mounted on the reverse clutch drum, allowing rotation one way but not the other. Ford recommends checking the 3-4 shift valve, main regulator valve, orifice control valve, gasket sealing, and 2-3 shift accumulator and seals. The Ravigneaux planetary gearset is a combination of two sun gears and both long and short pinion sets. Step 5 Support bottom of transmission with a wide block of wood or use a transmission jack. I need to know the proper torque converter engagement because the guy who makes the adapter will be me.
The seal grooves and seals must be hospital clean. Step 4: Install Reverse Clutch Piston Snap Ring The reverse clutch piston snap ring pops into the clutch hub and retains the piston. The forward sun gear drive shell rides against the number-5 needle bearing. Step 8: Replace Shaft Seal and Install Manual Shift Linkage Always replace the manual shift shaft seal while you have the transmission apart. Pressure is instead directed to the overdrive servo regulator valve. You may need to replace the input shaft.
Step 4: Inspect Solenoids The standalone solenoid is for torque converter lockup via solid input or pulsing duty cycle. Ford also recommends performing your troubleshooting step-by-step so you never miss a critical step that could lead you right to the problem. You also want to service the torque converter not shown with 2 quarts of transmission fluid, which helps prime the pump. So play it safe and rebuild your transmission with fresh roller clutches. They should rattle when you shake the clutch and shaft assembly.
