Or to discuss in detail the aspects of your vehicle transmission call the Midwest Transmissions Center the drive train expert. Award Winning Looks Looks are more than skin deep. Leaks can cause extensive damage if not fixed and can destroy the clutch. Between the shift lever and the extension, a rubber isolator kept transmission noise and vibration from entering the passenger compartment. We offer a no hassle 12 month warranty, performance guaranteed.

Throughout the years our advancements in 3500 technologies have brought our transmissions to the forefront of the industry. I also would like to ad that the guys at the shop were real easy to deal with on the phone. The core deposit is added to your total then is completely refunded when it unit arrives at our facility. These Transmissions are not interchangeable and have slight variance between the bolt patterns and gear ratios. The hardened bearings that we use are designed to withstand tremendous pressure and increase your transmissions longevity. To make engagement of the first and second gears easier, the 1-2 synchronizer had a dual-cone design that reduced shift effort by up to 40%.
To get the correct parts the first time you should disassemble the unit prior to ordering parts. The outer casing goes through an extensive process of conditioning to give it that factory luster you would expect from this type of elite product. Jeep used it later with its legendary engine. May have been different in later years. On the Dodge Ram, the shift lever extension had a square bore that snapped over the transmission shift lever when pressed down. Other leaks, where components meet, could be due to problems with the sealer or incorrect bolt tightening.
Troubleshooting Leaks can be caused by overfills as well as by seal issues. Hard shifting, noise, wear, and internal binding are usually caused by lubricant issues — dirty gear oil, low levels, or the wrong lubricant. Its corrosion resistant two piece housing allows structural integrity while keeping its overall weight to a minimum. For the 2005 model year, Chrysler stopped using the New Venture Gear 3500, moving to the Getrag 238 six-speed gearbox 3. Through the years, we have isolated certain weak points in these transmissions that need to be addressed. A special synchronizer, different from the others, was designed to clash if the driver tried to get into reverse at a speed over 5 mph — perhaps by forgetting that it was a five-speed and not a six-speed. We take pride in the way our transmission not only performs but looks.
For two-wheel drive, it had a long output shaft and rear case; the four-wheel-drive version had a short output shaft and rear case. Quieter operation resulted from a change to finer pitch gears for third and fifth speeds. Select this link to see what. Every unit must be thouroughaly tested to be worthy of the Smart Parts name. We can help with improving performance and conversions. Finer pitch placed more teeth in mesh at the same time, distributing the loads to reduce noise.
Normal noises include an audible whine at extreme speeds; other noises are usually due to lubricant issues. One of two rear case housings were used depending on if the vehicle was two- or four-wheel drive. Its internal components were also lighter, resulting in easier shifts and a total 100 lb weight savings. Use our online shopping cart, just double click the part number and see additional information, add to cart or proceed to check out. The force reduction resulted from addition of a second friction load path. The use of regular gear and axle lubricants in this transmission can cause destruction. Whether this was due to Daimler desires or functional considerations is unknown.
A hydraulic actuation system clutch master cylinder, fluid lines, and slave cylinder and mechanical clutch system flywheel, clutch disc, and pressure plate made up the clutch assembly. Worn synchro rings can result in gear clash when going into forward gears though they can stick somewhat in new or recently rebuilt transmissions, leading to hard or noisy shifting, which gets better as the rings wear in. Our factory offers transmissions that are dyno tested before leaving the factory, Ensuring high quality. . Guaranteed quality and correct parts supplied. Because we use so many new parts, our rebuild process doesn't require a perfect core to be sent back. Hard shifting can also be caused by clutch maladjustments or damaged clutch components.
In the constant-mesh transmission, all gears were constantly in mesh with each other, but none transmitted torque until a synchronizer was engaged — no need to move gears together to engage. The fewer springs allowed the springs to be longer and dampen vibrations better, reducing gear rattle. The same applied to the output shaft bearing retainers — one of two were used for two-wheel drive, bolts were inserted through the outside of the case and threaded into the retainer; for four-wheel drive, bolts were inserted from the inside and threaded into the case. After buying a Smart Parts transmission I'm starting to like my truck again. To improve quality Midwest was one of the first companies to include dyno testing of manual transmission prior to shipping as a final step in the quality control process. We recommend that you purchase the synthetic fluid from the dealer when working on this transmission. Select the parts you require from the following list and give us a call.
If a leak shows up at the rear of the extension or adapter housing, it is likely from the housing seals; if it shows up at the front, it could be the front bearing retainer or the retainer seal. The transmission had a clutch-starter interlock system to prevent the engine from starting while the clutch was engaged; it had a non-adjusting clutch pedal position switch on the clutch master cylinder push rod and was wired in series with the ignition switch and starter relay coil. The vented clutch housing reduced heat and improved clutch life; it had a machined notch for the crankshaft position sensor. You can see the complete line of products that we offer. Jeep bolted the bellhousing to the transmission case; Dodge did not. Midwest transmission has been in the automotive re-manufacturing and rebuilding business for 19 years, and shipping completed units world wide.
