so my trans is done and on its way back!!   so .....in a nut shell, i have a fully rebhuilt trans   :m    luckily i had a new r&p. rev was worn but not shot so i said replace it anyway.  obviously needed new 1st/2nd ( to convert back to a 4 speed from a 3 speed)  as there a match set. i guess 4th gear hub was gawled and starting to seize. apperantly 2nd ( which would be 3rd in a 4 speed) applied to much side load and cracked 4th slider hub. so now i have weddle racing gears plus they machined the gear carrier housing to use a larger/stronger main shaft bearing.  he had 1 last steel caged pinnion bearing luckily.  recap....new r&p, new 1st/2nd and 3rd/4th and rev, new steel caged pinnion bearing and larger main shaft bearing along with new slider hubs, shift forks etc etc.  that trans lasted 15 years on its opriginal internals. 12 years with a 355 chevy v8 bolted to it and 3 with my 2.3 4 cyl.  i was warned 2nd gear is now weaker then it was as its smaller in a 4 speed. i had it geared down 2nd and 3rd so i can spend most of the runs in 3rd now and sped up 4th gear for more over all speed. i will be turning the turbo down to buy a little more life out of the trans as its a boat anchor when it lets go lol

ya know....with such little run time, i am not sre you will notice the tiny bit of power it might have lost from the new/better parts. this will still be a runner for sure!

I hope/think all is going well but I thought that the last 3 tries too. :m 5:

I have the no load cells pretty damn close in the tune and I see 10" vac in the crankcase fully warmed up idling.  :s

Time for the dyno.

With the 4 stages of scavenge on the dry sump pump I have good crankcase vacuum. Don't know how much yet as I haven't hooked up the aux data logger but when the engine shuts off it sucks oil out of the dry sump tank back to the pan so it is making vac even at idle as it should. Gonna throw a mechanical guage in place of the MAP sensor on it tonitejust to see what it's pulling.The vac release is set to 14 inches supposedly. A side benefit is that I have,so far,zero oil seepage let alone small leaks. Not a single drop anywhere..............yet. :)
