Tech- - DRIVE TRAIN / manual overdrive??
« on: September 20, 2010, 08:48:03 PM »
why would i need a second clutch? the primary clutch would disengage both transmissions. it would be the best of low gear and overdrive gears. would the output being disengaged be the same as the input shaft being disengaged? i guess my question is will it shift?

oh, and the dual tranny thing, its not for the low gear. its for the high gear. the 2nd tranny is trned around so the input shaft is facing the rear axle. info on this make shift aplication is appreciated as well. thanks in advance.

ok all good stuff.... on another note, I was talking to my dad today and he remembers an overdrive component that bolts up between the engine and the bell housing. he doesn't remember who makes it, or if it's electric or manually controlled, but he says he used to install them when he worked for a tranny shop many years ago. does anybody know what i'm talking about?

OK>>>>> scratch that... new question.. can you run a regular truck 4 speed backwards? ya know... behind the first one?   two transmissions? my thought is that it'll give you 16 foreward gears, some equal to others of course. is it possible if i support the input shaft with a bracket so it doesnt wear itself down?, and can it shift in the oppisite direction? i also have to factor in that putting it in neutral only disengages the input shaft. or does it? i know i'm complecating things, but its curiosity getting the best of me.

i know what it does, but why does an engine need to be choked when you start it with a normal carb?

ok... here's the thing. i have a big block 413 industrial with the original heavy duty 727. (or so i've been told. has the brake on tailhousing). My question is about adding an overdrive component. What do you know about the 727 that came in the 90's with the o/d? is it worth a damn? i've heard it is no good because everything (all of the forward gears) are ran through the o/d component. how trustworthy is this transmission? would it snap inside with a big block pushing it? Yes, the bell is set up for a 360, but i found an adaptor. SHOULD I USE IT OR STICK WITH WHAT I HAVE?

if i have the 727, why do i still need the bell housing?  as a follow up, i have the 413 torque convertor and the rb bell 727. its the motorhome heavy duty version. found a craigslist transfer case (NP205) divorced for $350. fools rusted to hell, though. i'll wait till something better comes along. meaning a less rusty version.

thank you all for your replies. i changed my mind though. the truck is originally an automatic, so this would mean changing a whole lot more than the input shaft. i still have the heavy duty 727 that came with the industrial. thats what i'm going to use, along with a devorced transfer case. they have the hi low range that would sort of act like a granny gear. (CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG PLEASE.) so for now, the ind 413 w/ 727. still gonna put my axels in for future t.case. thanks yall

is it possible to shave down the input shaft myself, or is it better to take it to a shop?
