Are you sure the selector on the trans is not inbetween detents? Are you using a column shifter or ratchet/gate shifter?

Tci gated shifter, it was kinda a pain to adjust it to hit park and 1st. Any idea about trying to take off in 1st? Really got to get on it to get moving, any test ports to check for proper engagment of 1st gear? Thanks

Definitly a pain to get the detents right. I had to make a shorter lever for the B&M in the truck i worked on. So your 100% sure you got it though? Just an easy thing to check before going back into the vb.

You can pressure check the trans and make sure only the correct ones are engaged

I adjusted mine by putting the trans in neutral and the shifter in neutral. Pretty straight forward and it hits all the gears and goes into park. I usually got a bind in the down 2-1 if mine wasn't adjusted right.

My brother just blew is trans for the 5th time so he wants to do it himself, and he's now super computer savvy so I'm helping him out.

He has the usual upgrades (intake, worked pump, exhaust) and a super B, and has already stripped/cracked his input shaft and several other things totaling 5 transmissions. He decided he wants to rebuild it himself to save some money and to make it stronger especially since he's going to go twins and he drives it very hard.

I've come up with the following list of upgrades for his trans, what do you think:

Transgo skift kit P/N: TFOD/518.
Billet Input Shaft
Billet 1-2 servo
Billet front servo apply lever 4.2 ratio (OEM is 3.8)
Billet Accumulator piston
Billet band strut
Billet Anchor
Performance Rear Band Servo
Brass Impregnated Carbon Fiber Flex Band
low/reverse band
Sonnax pressure reg valve
Teflon Coated Pump Gears
Overdrive extreme duty Mega Spring
Clutch Pack upgrades: http://www.competitiondiesel.com/for...d.php?t=100577
-OD/direct clutch pack: OEM = 10 double sided. Upgrade to 48re 23 single sided plus one double sided clutch
-OD/Brake clutch pack: remove wider wave snap ring and replace reaction plate with 48re one. This allows 6 clutches up from OEM 5.
-Direct Clutch pack: OEM = 4 each. Use a used pressure plate from the forward clutch pack instead of reaction plate for more clearance and add stock .070" steels and .065" frictions and fit a total of (6) frictions and (6) steels.
-Forward Clutch Pack: OEM = 4 each. Upgrade = 5 each by purchasing a used forward clutch pressure plate and using it as a stepped reaction plate. The corner on the reaction plate needs to be ground down 0.030” all the way around, can use 1/8” metal cutting disc for angle grinder.


He's dead set on getting a suncoast M3ga-3 kit for his truck @ $1100. should he just get that or would it be more cost effective and stronger if he pieces his own together?

Also is there any benefit to upgrading his planetary gears? I'm not sure what he has in there, it's a 96 47re.

Thanks,
Mark
