I know there is a lot of these posts, and I think I've read them all, but still not 100% sure so I need some help and insight guys. Swapping out a 68RFE to a fresh rebuilt NV5600. Using what I was told was an adapter plate out of a 05 NV5600 equipped truck. But now I'm having my doubts. I'm installing a South Bend Triple Disc DDDCOMP6 with SB hydraulics HYDX .750 is the model I believe.
My belief is the first set of clutch's I received had the wrong hubs on them, and the input shaft collar was hitting the hub on the clutch. So I contacted south bend and pulled the tranny back out. SB sent a UPS truck and ended up sending me another kit. I installed everything again and re stabbed the trans, started the truck, but it is not letting it go into gear as the clutches aren't disengaging all the way. I pulled the hydraulics and pumped the plunger to check for air in the system which there wasn't any, then installed my tool to manually disengage the clutches. I took up all the freeplay on the clutch fork then went an additional 7/8" just like SB said too, jumped in the cab and still wasn't disengaged. I then went just a hair further maybe 1/8" to no avail. Contacted SB with the results again and they swear they tested it and personally seen that this one was working before they shipped it to me. So now I'm second guessing if the adapter plate I installed may have came out of an 05 auto instead of a manual..... When I kill the truck I can put it in any gear I want. Its just when its running.
1. Does the 03-05 47RE/48RE have the same engine/trans adapter plate as the NV5600?
2. Does anyone know the adapter plate thickness on a NV5600 equipped truck so I can compare it to mine?
3. I measured mine with a set of calipers and it was 2.250".
4. Also I cant find a Cummins or Mopar part number on this thing anywhere. The only number I can find is 3965233 which doesn't connect to anything?
Let me know what y'all think because right now at this moment I have no clue where to look or try next.
