Here are some added photo's of the back half of the trans being assembled. The next step is to get the rear planet assembly ready and get it installed in the case. As you can see in the pictures in post my last post we have installed our low and reverse piston assembly. The next parts to look at are the rear ring gear and the ring gear support. This first picture is of the support. Note the condition of the bushing surface and also the splined area's of this part. They need to be like new in condition. If they are badly worn, we will replace it with another one. Here is the photo.
The next piece is the rear ring gear. We make sure that this gear is clean and free of debris. The snap ring groove loves to collect debris. Some builders never take this apart. That is poor building practice IMO. We make sure to view and clean every part in these transmissions. Also making sure that the gear itself is not chipped or damaged in any way. Here is a photo of a ring gear ready to be installed.
Here is a picture of the two pieces assembled with the snap ring.
The next part to address after cleaning it in solvent is the rear planet. We inspect the gears for pitting, chips and looseness of the pinion gears. See where my fingers are, this is where the gear needs to be checked for looseness/wobble. Here is a picture of the planet.
The next photo is of the planet with the torrington bearing already installed.
Next is to assemble the planet and the ring gear assembly.
I always make sure to lightly grease bushing surfaces of hard parts and also the bushing itself.
The next step is to get the low reverse clutch pack ready to be installed. The wave plate is the first plate that will be installed into the case. This is followed with a steel and a clutch until all 5 plates are in the case. Here is a photo of the pack before it is installed.
Next we will install the planet assembly into the case.
Then the wave plate, steels and frictions are installed.
The following part is an anti-rattle clip. We as always inspect this clip to make sure that it has not collapsed and is like new in condition. Here is a picture of it.
I always grease this clip into place in the case.
The next part to be installed will be the low roller support. Here is the photo.
The next thing to do is to install new low roller and the snap ring to keep it in place.
The next step is to install the low roller race. This race has been modified for use with our FLT beast sun shell kit.
When fully installed this is what it looks like.
The next step is to install it into the case. Here is the photo of the complete low roller assembly assembled into the case.
Next step is to install the snap ring into the case. It is important that it be installed in the correct location.
Here a photo with the snap ring seated in the case and also the low roller seated on the planetary.
Next we will assemble our FLT/beast sun shell package. Vince
