I have the 4T65E out and don't see any problem with the torque converter, torque converter seal or the o-ring. In any case, they do not need to be reinstalled. For power levels and goals higher than this we offer a few upgrades to keep the transmission durable and the main weak links of the 4T65E are the input shaft and the factory dual chain set and we can help which upgrades are best for your application. The baggie organizational system and some pictures here and there will save your butt. Pump shaft sleeve looks good. Each High Perf rebuild is custom tailored to match your vehicle and performance level keeping in mind your current and future plans.
I will credit that to my awesome cardboard box and ziploc bag organizational system. It is a big investment and we provide a lot of details so you know what you are really getting- so please take the time to read our details below! We do not stock rebuilt transmissions as there are too many variations from model to model and year to year to cover everything and keep caught up with our constant incoming workload. It's also crucial not to nick or cut the seals; in some cases, I temporarily wrapped shafts in electrical tape while sliding on the seals to avoid running seals over grooves or sharp edges. We slightly modify this kit for improved high throttle shift feel on modified cars as well as make a few other changes internally to quicken and firm up shift feel. Put your selective spacer and all the bearings in their places and put the case cover on. For several years we used our custom 12 friction 3rd clutch set factory is 10 friction and made a few revisions over the years to this and worked very well.
Year 2000 model 4T65E transmissions received an upgraded valve body. You know it's all the way in when the sprag rests on the thrust bearing and is more or less flush with the top clutch plate. Just try to keep the tops and sides as perfect as possible. Transmission Range Switch: This is the one that sits on top of the trans case, right where the shifter cable attaches. U're right, I should move the thread.
To be honest, on a 4T60E, I could not say what you have to do to get to the valvebody. There are also aftermarket beefed-up output shafts, half axles, etc. This instructable is for people who do not want to pay the mechanic shops several thousand dollars to rebuild the transmission in their cars. The rings will bunch up on the first few wraps, but keep steering them into their grooves and they will go in compress down to size. The Volvo models listed had an optional Gear-Tronic version which provided manual shifting typically found on the turbocharged models. The differences in the design will also leave you stuck somewhere in the middle of your rebuild and in need of a new transmission. It's a lot easier and you'll need the room to feed the trans out the side.
Please view our Custom Order Info page before contacting us for an order, Thank You! The turbine shaft looks good, and with my anticipated power level I do not see the need for a high-dollar aftermarket upgrade. Got away with installing the new one using both a punch and a hammer that happened to have just the right sized head the hammer head was basically a big driver. Remove the top snap ring at the drive chain end first and put the transmission together then install the snap ring before you install the chain case cover. I put on 36,000 of them and it ran great most of the time, albeit shifts generally felt inconsistent. I feel the more information I have the better.
Sorry I did not get a pic of the the 2nd Clutch Drum I installed next; it had to be rotated like the sprag to get it's clutch plates to line up one-by one and drop the drum into place; though this one only took a minute. It's funny that you weighed the reassembled transmission. I found there was trans fluid behind the membranes. It's thanks to your very detailed post and a couple of youtube videos that I was able to determine which parts were worth saving and even how to go about reassembling everything. Yes that is correct I have taken them all out and now they are mixed up. All the roller bearings, roller thrust bearings, and selective washers are fine.
