His idea was to use a '67 upper valve body with part-throttle downshift housing added, and the '60-'64 or '65 lower valve body. Much like the later production A904 with a wide ratio gear a double wrap low-reverse band is used. The planetaries and sun gear in the top row give gear reductions and reversals; the output shaft transfers output torque; and the governor controls the shift points. The 904 uses different kickdown bands to hold the front clutch retainer drum during second gear. Bands- Just like the clutches, the bands are made from different materials. The last row contains the Output Shaft, Governor Assembly and the Output Shaft Support Bearing.
At worst, it would be seen as a simple extra part throttle downshift, earlier than the driver might expect. A 518 transmission has a throttle valve cable pressure cable , it must be hooked up and adjusted correctly. It's a good thing I don't have the motor in yet as this would have been a real headache otherwise. Examine the bushings in the sun gear for excessive wear. With the lever in second, the vehicle starts in low and shifts to second but line pressure blocks the 2-3 shift valve in the valve body to prevent any 2-3 upshift.
The other modification I suggested at that time was to reduce the input shaft end play down to 0. To match the valvebody modifications in this 727, Ron chose the 4. This was an easy way to eliminate worries in case the valve body functioned incorrectly. Part-throttle kickdown, to avoid having to floor the gas pedal for a downshift, was added for the 1971 cars.

There could have been other, similar failures, but the timing seems strangely related. My 727 is in need of a rebuild soon and I'm thinking about doing it myself for the expirience. The next row has the Oil Pump and the Front Clutch assembly shown. Like you mentioned, blondes are simply stock so they will not be good for an upgrade clutch. Transmission problem I am having a transmission issue that i hope someone can help me with. Hey Transmission Gurus, I need a little help identifying a 727 TorqueFlite Transmission.
The gated shift quadrants also permitted the deletion of the reverse safety blocker valve which, in TorqueFlites made through 1965, had shifted the transmission harmlessly into Neutral if the Reverse position were selected with the vehicle moving forward above approximately 3 mph 4. On the left, pens point out the wider bushing and load areas. The only thing left to spin is the rear annulus gear which is splined to the output shaft. From top left you will see the Pan, the Case, and the Tail shaft, or Extension Housing and associated hardware. The Belleville washer also acts as a spring to return the piston when the clutch is not hydraulically functioning.
Why is a 727 called a 727 and a 904 called a 904? As the input shaft turns 2. Part three give some of the techniques that can be used to troubleshoot Torqueflite irregularities that I've seen most often. The TorqueFlite was not just used by Chrysler; it was adopted by luxury automakers , , , Aston Martin, Maserati, and , as well as domestic rival and commercial-vehicle makers International Harvester, Land Rover, Iveco, Karrier, Matbro, Stonefield, Sirmac, Boss Motor, and Mitsubishi. Direct Drive is named for the fact that engine speed is transferred directly in a 1:1 ratio through the transmission. Below all this is the oil pan I've shown the Direct Connection deep pan with a drain plug , the fluid source for the hydraulic system some oil cooling is also done by the pan.
Gear ratios: 1 2 3 4 R 2. When the switch is turned off you will have 1st, 2nd and 3rd low range, exactly like a 727 transmission with the same ratios. However, this was not always the case; the 1962 , a right-hand drive export model sold in and , used the U. It was used in trucks and vans starting in the mid-1990s. Inspection, Checked for: Leaks Shifting Difficulties Vibrations Excessive Noise Temperature and Performance 727 Gear Ratios: 2. For now, I'll just point out that the filter and filter extension are at the top, the valve body and associated valves, springs, balls, and end plates are on the left, the separator plate is in the right-center and the transfer plate is at the right. Governor pressure is also directed to the 2-3 valve in preparation for that shift.
For the same reason we stick with Chrysler products, I stick with Transgo; performance and dependable results. To refresh memories, I'll explain the 2-3 shift function again. Torqueflite was an available option or standard equipment, depending on model and year, on all Chrysler products: , , , Chrysler and. The A727 incorporated a parking pawl, with the sole exception of the 1962 Chrysler version, which had an extension-mounted drum brake. The A-727s used a pawl lock for parking, actuated by a lever on some 1962-64 models or by putting the shift lever into Park from the 1965s on ; not all the early 727s had a parking pawl, but it would eventually become standard.
Light duty 727s often have three clutches, our 1970 383 unit has the four-clutch pack used in heavy-duty and performance applications. In 1967 Chrysler changed to a 24-tooth design that takes a different torque converter. The parking gear-governor assembly is splined to the output shaft so when the gear is stopped, the output shaft is stopped. Our technicians have an average experience of 10 years or more. While these modern equivalents are impressive, many of these transmissions are based on decades-old designs. We have carefully engineered a process that allows a 727 rebuild to maximize performance and durability while staying within a wholesale price range.
The converter hub has slots that engage the tabs on the inner rotor of the oil pump to create oil pressure and oil flow from the pump while the engine is running. When the switch is turned on you will have 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear low range plus 3rd high range. Rated to handle up to 750 horsepower. The fourth row holds both Planetary Gear sets, the Front Clutch hub, Sun Gear and Sun Gear Driving Shell, and the Low-Reverse Drum assembly. The other type of servo assembly does not use an internal spring-piston assembly, and is usually found in high performance applications where soft shifts would be detrimental.
