How hard is it? The 5600's are all pretty much a pita to get into 1st & R with a dual disk…..Alot of the times it's easier to go into 2nd & then straight to first, instead of trying to get it in first to begin with
Well here is alittle more...went to work today and was planning on dropping tranny tonight, fire up truck after work and to my surprise it glides into gear no problem, shifts awesome on my ride home. I leave ten minutes later and it won't go into gear again, I'm talking any gear. I think maybe my discs need re-hubbed. They had some burrs on it from stabbing the tranny multiple times. Could that be a possibility?How hard is it?

No I did not. I didn't know if the input required some type of lube or not. Shifting problem is back so I believe the disc/discs aren't sliding on the input as they should. Do you guys recommend getting two new clutch discs or would I be able to get a file and clean up the disc hubs and input?Do you use powdered graphite on the input shaft
Will definitely do that. I'm to the point of wanting to sell this rig. Anyone want a 2012 that doesn't shift right haha?Keep us posted on what happens.
Well I sent it to Blumenthals in Oaklahoma...I was recommended to them by a bunch of people. They are real good to deal with and said will go through tranny again if this clutch dont fix it.Wow that sucks. I'd be irate with the trans shop. Unfortunately I've been in a similar boat.
Just FYI, I've experienced many incompetent trans shops for these trucks in my area. Only good one I've been recommended to is Standard Gear in Dallas or Fort Worth? TX. These transmissions are in a weird size range right between passenger car and industrial trucks. Your average trans shop doesn't have the experience, knowledge or tools to work with these things successfully.
