T400, looking for answers before install!
I am wrapping up my T400 rebuild finally and hopefully will do the install tomorrow morning. The application is a nearly stock ~400hp (at flywheel) Cadillac, just doing a resto. I had a few concerns after finishing setting up the drums.
1: To get a 0.060" clearance in my direct drum I had to go with mostly thin steel plates in addition to the wave. From what I read this is a good clearance but will I have any heat issues with mostly thin steels?
2: My forward drum, with a wave, only took 4 frictions and to achieve 0.060" clearance. Is that friction disks enough for it?
3: I have never installed a dry transmission, whats the procedure for filling it with fluid in regards to the install? Can I put all the fluid in after it is installed?
