I use the scarf cut teflon on the stator(pump cover) support for the reverse input drum...

I use the L cut rings on the input shaft.

Trans Seal Resizing Tool

I haven't rebuilt a auto trans. I've seen the resizing tool in manuals but never knew how they actually were used and why they're needed. Do the teflon seals not shrink when stretched or does this tool keep them from stretching? Please more Info. Thanks

I install one of the Transgo cup plugs in the reverse input aluminum piston... in the hole already there.. then I drill the cup plug out with a .045 to .055 drill bit. That way you can mod 2 drums for the price of one kit. LOL


resize tools for teflon sealing rings are just that. They resize the rings after you srtetch them a bit to install onto the shafts.

You must be careful to not cut these rings when sliding the tool over them. Let them sit for 30 - 40 minutes is what I do IF i use the solid rings.

IF the kit has solid rings teflon design.. I scarf cut them and install them. I do this to the 4L80E rings too.... where the inter-locking rings are no availible.

trans

All I had was the solid white teflon seals, so i used them. I have a sizer tool that a made that works good.

I did just that with the cup plugs, used one and drilled out the hole to .055"

It's back in the truck but not all hooked up yet. I should get it about finished tonight.

next problem

I got the truck all back together and went for a road test. The trans worked great until it warmed up. Now it acts funny when you first pull out, kind of like it slips then grabs, it does this in all the gears and reverse. I did not let it cool down enough to see if it's ok when cold. But once it moves it shifts great.

Crosley, thanks for the teflon seal resizing tool info. I've noticed most of the HP Trans rebuild kits and builders who specialize in HP 2004R etc. recommend the teflon seals. Are they better when line pressures are increased? Longer life? Pros & Cons? I know they're easier to damage but that's about all. LOL!Thanks again

trans

Went for a short ride this morning and the thing worked excellent..

Any ideas about whats going on when it warms up??? Could it be the converter?? I did put a new transtar converter when i did the re-build.

Kstar sounds like it's loosing pressure when the temp increases. Could be a pump clearance problem or filter pickup seal. Maybe Crosley will have some ideas.

I hooked up the gage. I have about 85 psi line pressure when it cold and about 35 when it's warm.. I guess thats the problem...

What do i look for to fix it???

If the pump is bad I'd recommend to get a rebuilt pump. Unless you measure the pump housing clearances and can get the correct parts for a rebuild. That's if the housing & body isn't scored and in need of machining. Did you check the pressures right. Look at TCIs directions>and check. If they're still low. Ask Crosley if it could be something else (cheaper) hopefully.

The 4L60E pumps aren't cheap. This is a good site for parts.
