Tech- - DRIVE TRAIN / 727 Transmission Pan
« on: October 02, 2009, 06:54:01 AM »
Seriously though, thanks.  I wonder if I should just get another stock pan or go to the Moroso.  I like the idea of extra fluid but certainly can't drag the pan.  What are you guys using for your C-Bodies?  Any aftermarket pans?
 
BTW, I have never met a chrome anything that needs to hold fluid in that worked.

That sounds like a personal problem

Tech- - DRIVE TRAIN / 727 Transmission Pan
« on: October 01, 2009, 01:53:20 PM »
I went down to the Hughes Performance factory here in Phoenix and picked up their cast aluminum pan.  Very nice and should put to bed leak issues.
 
I installed it, thought it looked a little deep, but nonetheless, moved forward.  Droppped the car and noticed that the pan is hanging very low.
 
I have been using it to see how it would work.  No more leaks, but today, after driving it for a few weeks, I banged the pan on a driveway hump leading to a business.  It was a pretty good hit.  No damage (this time), but this has me concerned. 
 
First of all, let me say, Hughes makes a strong part.
 
I see that Moroso makes a fabricated pan that is 2.33" tall, I think the Hughes pan is 3 3/16.  I wonder if that savings is enough.
 
What is the depth of the standard pan for BB 727's for cars? 
 
thanks!

The one on the left was used on the '64 console shift and all '65-'68. The metal contact is surrounded by plastic.

Leaburn, thanks for the neutral safety switch.  It showed up, but unfortunately, the switch side is not big enough to actuate.
 
The switch has a plactic button that is larger than the smaller metal button as shown in this picture.  I don't want to go to the trouble of changing the rooster comb out, so I will go on the hunt for the one on the left in this picture.  Their is an engraving on the switch that reads: 2770 660 MOPAR CPE.

I am glad that the people who prepared that picture pointed out the drain plug and the transmission fluid.  I was really confused until I saw that!

Thanks for the input.  I am chasing a tranny leak, and this is the last point to change out.  I am surprised at how low the surface tension is for tranny fluid.  It can wick through anything!

Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / Monoleaf suspension
« on: September 16, 2009, 07:03:46 PM »
My biggest issue with mono leaf is increased axle wrap.  Don't like it, don't want it.  I had a 69 Camaro that had a monoleaf, it wasn't the preferred setup.
Just my opinion though, like anything else, someone else will ove it for some reason.

Thanks Lea, my email is jmedhurst@aztechcontrols.com
 
Let me know what it costs. 
 
Isn't the reverse lights switch a cam switch on the steering column?

Thanks! 
I am very bad when it comes to electrical, I need this to be very simple to understand.
 
Do you have a part# for the two post switch?  I know that the actual switch side on this inside might be different in some cases
See:  http://www.moparts.org/Tech/Archive/auto/5.html
 
That brings up a good point, I was told that the reverse light was controlled by a cam type switch actuated by the steering column.  Is this true?

I am having a hard time finding a neutral safety switch with a single wire like the one I currently have.  I can only find the three wire one with a connector.  Can the three wire switch be wired so that it can work with my single wire?
It was a toss up wether this topic should be here or in electrical...
 
Thanks!

Tech- - DRIVE TRAIN / 727 Pan Leaking

I like a drain plug to help with the fluid change.  I still take the pan off and replace the filter, just without the huge mess.
 
Thanks for the heads up about it losing prime.  I wanted to make sure something wasn't wrong with my tranny.  I have no problems putting it in neutral for a little while.  I like to warm the car up anyway before driving.

I am going to order this.  Looks like a good deal for cast aluminum.

Thanks Bob, yes, I always check fluid warm or hot and level with car running.
 
The level looks good to me.  I wonder if these torque converters lose their prime while sitting.  That would explain its behavior.  Again, it only happens when I drive it after sitting for some time.  Otherwise, it gets in gear normally.
 
I hate doing something more than once.  I think I am going to cover my bases, get new bolts and gaskets for the bolts, and a new stiffer and flatter pan.
 
I had read elswhere to buy the gaskets from a later model vehicle.  I read that there was a chnage in the gasket that went to more of a plastic material than rubber.  Maybe to reduce the chance of cold flowing the gasket.
