Broncowilly I’m glad you were able to get it fixed!

favaguitars Got it in and back up and running. Didnt have 1st gear when i first test drove it. But i guess it was in limp mode because there was a dozen or so trans codes in the computer. I had turned the key to the on position with the nss and 8pin connector disconnected. I readjusted both bands while i was in there and everything seems to be shifting fine. We will be pulling the trailer in two weeks. We will see how it does.

For what its worth. I used a cooper 12guage wire to fish the band around the drum. It helped out tremendously. I also replaced the vb harness as i had cracked the tab on my previous work and figured i would replace it while i had it apart again.

Thanks for all the help yall. I now know way more about automatics than i ever wanted. Haha

Thx for the tip man

favaguitars Ok i ordered a red eagle slip in from CTpowertrain.

Link if anyone is interested

Also got a new vb electronics harness as i must have tweaked the connector and cracked it. I have some valvoline atf+4 on the way to make sure i have enough for the refill. Should have it back up and running this weekend. These 80+ hour work weeks got me beat.

cerberusiam Actually, the slip in bands are generally built heavier than the BW OE units. I have better luck with the slip in bands than anything. The red lined bands on a mostyl solid band is pretty beefy.

smelonas I believe Borg Warner and red clutches make a good slip in band.

Any of them will work. You will have to pull the trans at some point and put in a real band. A slip in band is going to eventually snap from the pressure. You could try a lower ratio lever to help your band live longer. Might affect your 2-3 shift.

favaguitars Well. I found the culprit

Broke the intermediate band. I actually have a billet one that came with the anchor and strut kit i got from suncoast. But a cant pull the trans to put it in right now. Is there a band that can be put in with the trans in the truck?

48re 2nd gear issue

Also found a significant leak out the inspection cover at the bell housing. Trans was 3quarts low. Been since the vb rebuild it has about 3k miles on it. I filled it back up before i tested.

favaguitars Alrighty. So after some crazy work week i was able to test the manual shifting. What i found was that it didnt shift to second when i shifted to 2. But it definitely felt like it shifted to second when i shifted to drive. I could repeat this on command. Shift to neutral then one then drive. And the truck would start in first then shift to second.

Any thoughts before i pull the pan?
