4L60e Low Reverse Clutch
3 Attachment(s)
98 k1500 4x4 350 with 4l60e

Rebuilding using monster transmissions ss kit for the 4l60e

4L60e Low Reverse Clutch Seems to be to tight when I turn to clockwise it does turn but I would think that it would be more smooth. It does not turn counter-clockwise.. which i do know is correct. Can anyone tell me if this is okay or what needs to be done to troubleshoot?

Anybody anybody?
Any thoughts on this? I'm kind of stuck in limbo here since I can't continue my build.. any thoughts on this would be appreciated! Thanks

new roller clutches are tight usually. Some tighter than others.

I check them bent springs and such and run em

Are you saying that it should not be a problem? It should become more free spinning as it is run in the transmission?

I called monster trans and talked to there tech department. The guy says that this borg warner sprag is usually pretty tight and even the occasional squeaking noise I am hearing can be normal.

Does anyone object to this information??

run it and go just make sure you use cushion spring when you reinstall that sprag or you will take out the case

Cushion spring on the sprag?

I have a sprag that installs into the low roller assm. with a snap ring on both sides. Could that spring be part of my new sprag?

I guess I should have been more specific your rear roller is a sprag and where it indexes in the case there is a cushion spring that goes in the case first before your rear roller its kinda bent like a mishaped u

abbazabba 10-13-2012 10:38 AM

Oh yes yes! Yes sir that is installed correctly.

You scared me! I thought i forgot something.. already have the pump on.

Thanks for your help! (on the other thread too)
