Upgraded the shift springs, machined the pump to fix/upgrade a few flaws in this particular transmission as well as open up some holes in the housings to allow smooth, firm shifts.

Winter refresh complete. Freshened up the motor with all now timing set, seals and compression checks. At 145,000 miles, this motor still has PLENTY of life left in it. Transfer Case got a new chain set and bushings.  The torque converter failed and caused all kinds of issues. Since it shares the fluid with the tranny, I elected to completely rebuild the transmission instead of only replacing the converter. All of the fibers, steels, seals, orings, springs......everything.   Pretty intimidating at times, but we have access to more info than we could ever imagine with that little square thing in our pockets. Pretty stoked to freshen this truck up and put it back to work.

Great job Joe! I wouldn't have the intestinal fortitude to tackle that big of a job.

BTW - I love the ingenious use of the bike lift as a table and laptop stand!!

Condom?

But seriously, awesome to see you getting that thing refreshed.  I know you were asking about rear main seals.  Did you do those?  Did that go well?

Rear main was a breeze with the engine out, on a stand and turned upside down. No leaks so far, but I anticipate a drip from the two piece style seal in the future. Just part of big block life......much like a Harley. I can see where that job would be a PITA with the engine still in the truck, trying to get enough clearance between the oil pan and the frame rails.

In my case, add on no lift, limited garage space, and a few other missing tools.  this is why I paid a shop.  The cost of the tool to push it in alone was almost what the shop charged me. in my case, it wasnt worth the effort.  Im glad you got it done and we get to see that beauty pulling you to the track on occasion.
