Front band adjustment on 47RE


Recommended Posts

I put a new Certified Transmission in my truck. Its the Road Ripper 2000. It been running and shifting great. I finally put 10,000 miles on it.

 

So I decide to go ahead and drop the pan and change fluid and adjust bands. I did not do a complete flush. Just what came out of the pan. I adjusted the front and rear bands also.

 

After getting it put back together, I took it for a test drive. I noticed that 1 to 2 shift and the 2 to 3 shift is now delayed. When driving it will rev up to about 2400-2500 rpms and hold there for about a second-second and half, then finally shift. It did not shift this high before I did the adjustment.

 

On one of Michaels articles, under general transmission diagnostic, it says a delayed shift could be a front band adjustment. For the repair, it just says adjust front band.  For the front band, I went to 72 IN LBS and then backed off 1 7/8 turn.  

 

Which way do I adjust the screw to lower the shift point? I checked the fluid and it is spot on the full mark when warm, running and in neutral. I also looked at the shift cable at the throttle bracket. It is dead on center of the pin that the cable hooks too. I know a lot of people say to adjust the cable, but I wouldn't think I should have too since It didn't shift this high before?

 

Thanks,

Yes they were. I don't know what they were upgraded with but they did say both the sensor and solenoid were upgraded units to hold the line pressure better.

 

I'll try giving it a 1/4 turn tighter and see what it dose.

1/4 turn tighter= perfect!!

 

Thanks mopartechnician!

 

What are the symptoms of it being too tight? Is it normal to have to adjust a little from standard position?(72 inlbs-1 7/8 turn out)

 

Thanks,
