Got back at it a bit today, cleaned up the drum. The surface is flat, and the notches are in great shape.

More to come.

Added holes to every flat on the forward clutch hub/Internal gear. These clutches and steels that came out had hot spots where there wasn't holes. I'm using the CKP, and service manual as a guide for this built.


But, I have a problem. I dropped the rag with 2+2 on this page and lost some text, anyone have this book that can send me a pic of page 85? Talks about adding a hole.

Well, I need to order another low/reverse wave plate.

Also, I think the hole I need to add is .060", that was from doing some internet snooping on other builds. I think that is correct. Anyone have any input?

Also, I seem to have a few extra rubber seals from the kit. I've replaced them one for one, so I'm not sure what the deal is there.

Cleaning the case and replacing those seals, speedo, shifter shaft, rear seal, etc. I'd like to paint it, but who knows, the weather has been iffy here lately.

So after looking at the end play for the rear section, I have .024", the book calls for .002 to .004. So, called CK to get an .080" I put drum thrust washer to take up that .020".

Found 2 thicker forward drum thrust washers on Ebay and bought them. Should have them Monday. This will allow me to get the rear section end play to the .002" to .004" I need. Right now I have .024".

I have another 2004r I want to do, so I am sure the selection will come in handy.

Chased all the bolt holes, just to be sure. Chris called me back this morning, he doesn't have the thicker sunshell thrust washers anymore, good thing I found the others on fleabay.

I am going to tap the center support bolt and plug it for the dual feed, and tap the hole to block the 3-4 accumulator. I dont want to plug it, that seems to permanent. I like the option of softening up the shift if needed. Though with the 2800 stall convertor I should be fine.

I'll be at a standstill for a few days here pretty soon waiting on parts.

Used a 1/4-20 tap and plug for those holes.

The center support bolt.


And the 3-4 accumulator hole, with some blue loctite.
