Also I purchased 791617731370 on amazon. Will that dial indicator be sufficient enough for measuring end play where a dial indicator is used? I still haven't looked into where and how they mount for taking accurate measurements.
Yes....It would reduce the Reaction Carrier to Center Support End Play to about .005"Good info! I forgot to ask, if I have the front planet machined for a torrington bearing and then remove the 2 tang plastic washer off the rear planet all together, (which is what is suggested for this mod) does this change the end play tolerance specs at all?
Ah, I will fabricate that block. Thanks.Yes....It would reduce the Reaction Carrier to Center Support End Play to about .005"
To cleanly/adequately vent any fluid that collects in the 2nd Accumulator piston area, The Rear Band needs to be able to come on quickly for brake activation.I see that jakes D3 instructions ask that a small flat groove that is .060" deep/wide be milled or ground on the portion of the rear servo pin that goes though the case bore. I'm assuming this is the entire area lined in red in the picture below? Why is this needed?
Just the middle land like shown.Instructions also say to grind .050 off the sides of the epc solenoid to allow fluid to bypass. I'm assuming that's the portion on the left side of the picture below that actually goes into the valve that gets ground, but I’m not sure if just the middle ring which makes contact with the bore should be ground or all 3 rings between the 2 holes in the pic. If you grind all of them, won’t the sensor be loose inside the bore?
There is no way to add endplay between the Direct Drum & Forward Hub using that Hub, The Factory Hud sat on the Ledge of the Main Shaft (Right below the splines).....AS there is a chamfer machined into that Hub, It now longer sits on the Main Shaft. Compare the new Hub to the original one & you'll see what I'm talking about.
Stack it up with the original Reaction Carrier & 2 Tang Thrust.....Do you now have Reaction carrier to Center Support endplay? No easy way to measure this with a dial indicator....Got to go by feel.
You do have the .041 Shim under the lower Sun Gear bearing??
It's near impossible for someone to machine a bearing pocket in the Reaction Carrier & have the correct endplay, The are small dimensional differences in EVERY transmission.
If it's stacked correctly.....You're going to need further machining of the bearing pocket.
Yeah it feels like .005"It will run with the slightest of Reaction to Center Support Endplay.....You just don't want Zero or Negative endplay there as it would wipe out the Thrust Washer that sits inside the Center Support.
Output Bearing......The shims go UNDER the bearing against the Case!!! The bearing orients Black side down against the shims.
Front Endplay.....It's pretty easy to feel when the snap ring contacts the OD Carrier, Lift it 'til it contacts & zero the Dial Indicator, The you can lift it all the way for the reading.
This is the way I do it.....If you want to do it another way I can't really help.
