New "BIG" news from Garmons Diesel

Folks... Jeff has been working on a fix for you Mid to High HP trucks that break standard size Billet Inputs...

Intoducing the NEW Standard in Garmons Stage 3 tranny and up!!

All stage 3's will soon be shipped / installed with his New ONE PIECE 300M CRYOED FAT SHAFT!! It will be mated with his already Brand New triple disk converter made specialy to take the FAT SHAFT!! No more standard sized shaft to cause worry when racing

Once supply is plentiful, this new FAT SHAFT set up will be an option to purchase on Stage 2 units as well. Someday this may even be the only option he'll sell as far as Inputs go...

So stop worrying about if you can afford the best, for a very minor price bump, Go STRAIGHT to the Stage 3 and get it FAT!!!!

These are being made for Garmons only and will be proprietary to Garmons Diesel!



(Older pics from when he was getting the test units)

Nice!

Looks good. Much needed parts for the hard core guys. Also I just seen the new national dragster and it has a nice picture of cruz's race car with the big Garmon Diesel sticker on the side. Nice national coverage for the diesel guys.

Nice. Are you going to make "I got a Fat Shaft" t-shirts?

I dream of the day when I can drop my truck at Jeff's for some tranny tweakin'.

Yeah, fat shafts are nothing new but making it "Standard" with little extra charge is the key here... And will possibly be the Only shaft he stocks once the production is up...
Giving better reliability from the start...

That's Jeff main goal.. Cut down on people breaking anything at minimal extra expense...

He will be.. Garmons definately gonna hook him up.
Not sure if he'll wait till he breaks the standard shaft or pull it apart now and swap.

No, but at least the 3 billets I broke / twisted wouldn't have with this and I'd have had at least a few more days with my truck instead of it sitting torn apart.. lol

Sorry man... It wasn't Jeff. Just simply waiting on the maker to get it done up from scratch and put into production.... We've been waiting a good long while for them.

Thanks for the news David. That's sure some piece of mind in a trans build.

Hope to be giving Jeff a call towards the end of the year about my 05.. This 48re is running out of 2nd gear band material rather quickly.

Do these require machining of the pump? Doesn't really look like it does from the pics.

Don't think so... What he does, he worked it out as a standard build option.

I'll try to get conformation tmrw..

Yes the stator support does have to be bored to fit. This shaft is much larger at the base being one piece without the snap ring.

Com'mon, David, it's all ball bearings these days. Now prepare that fitzer valve with some 3-n-1 oil and some gauze pads.

Good deal, it was hard to tell in the pics. Hopefully these do well for you and give everyone another option.
