lets talk some Getrag

Recommended Posts

Seeing how I cant find hardly any answer on these things,other then there garbage. I need to know some things with it. I dont mind mine,( half the time when im not hauling) seems like it pulls great with a new clutch in it, I figured out it doesn't like to speed shift at all, which really sucks hauling a trailer around town on hills, 

 

Here is some of my downfalls with this one in my 92, when i bought it the guy said the sycro was going out in 3rd and 4th, when i test drove it... 3rd was bad had to float into it, but 4th wasn't, but the tranny feels really tight and strong, i dont think its getting worse, but it is definitely annoying! He included another getrag with it when i bought it, said its a perfect tranny,( came out of another 92 he said, but the guy couldn't use it because he was putting down some serious HP is what this gentlemen told me) what should i do before i swap it in? I already got told to feel the scryos in that one, is there anything else i can do to help it out while i have it apart? Beef it up a little, im by no means a tranny guru, so if its not really bad or hard to do,

 

How much gear noise is suppose to be there>? i have asked around about this..some have said a little.... the one thing that i have found odd is when i push the gear shift over towards 5th, i have really reall bad gear noise, almost sounds like its hitting the bell housing, It will some times do it when im sitting at a light and idling, or after long drives. it doesn't bog down the engine at all, ill watch the rpms and they stay steady,

 

Here is a blonde question,:doh: i couldn't find this answer, so im asking it here, can i pull in 5th gear with a trailer on? the gentlemen that i bought it from says he does it all the time, because it has 4:10 gears,  i have yet to do this because im worried about the output shaft and the input shaft, i have heard and read that there not the strongest by no means, to me 5th was still a overdrive gear like a nv4500.but he said he did it all the time:think:

 

To top it all off today, i snapped my gearshift.:thumbup2: how i did it is beyond me, other then i think it has been done before, and someone else welded it to a bolt. which i broke the bolt!! the icing on the cake. i was going up a steep *** hill, when to turn around, put into reverse and snapped it. like oh F****, now what. took the cover and rubber peices off, finally kicked it out of gear so i could let the clucth out after holding it down for 10 mins with the brake so i did kill it or kill me going to the back side of the wrong way hill!!!

 

Dont mind my weld porn,:hyper: it was just 110 wire fed with no gas!! what a B****...... first time for everything haha

not at all how i would have gone about it. but it might work for a while. i would have ground off the old weld. and then either tapped the shaft and sleeved it, or put a pipe covering both. my bet is your fix will break again.

Good luck though. let us know how it works.

haha, I already got a new one ( just the metal itself so I can do a custom one ) coming from a local tranny shop here,i wanted to put a pipe over them like you were thinking, i didnt have anytools to do what i wanted, no grinder torch nothing, just a simple wire fed licon with 110 and no gas, had to make do with what i had to get me home where i can do what i need, the new one is going on this weekend  im fixing some else's hack job, its been done once for some reason. my bet with my buddy is it was going to snap on my way home :popcorn:
