C-6 Transmission/ TB problems Empty C-6 Transmission/ TB problems

Post  pigs521bbf on September 29th 2014, 11:14 pm

I jacked up my truck, i have installed my c-6 4x4 transmission with frank's TB. I wanted to make sure the transmission was going into all of the gears. I have notice when I would put the truck into 1st gear, the wheels would turn (but in reverse?) and it would only spin if the transbrake button was pushed in... When you would release the TB button, the wheels will not turn...

Any thoughts about what is going on??

thanks

It sound like a pro brake I have a pro brake and with the pro brake you have to hold the button in to back up

I am sure Frank will let you know if this is right on his brakes

Hey guys sorry about not getting an update.. Life happened but everything is back to normal for the most part.

I took the trans out and called Frank about the problem and the Forward Clutch Drum was broken and thats why it would not go into any gear. Reverse was the only gear I had. We cleaned everything out and replace the drum and had to send the converter off to get it cut and clean because of the metal.

Is there a given time that those drums should just be replaced?

the thing with the stock forward drum, you don't know it's life and how it's been treated , that's why I recommend the billet forward from TCS ,sure it's $700 but roll the dice , it's in your instructions with the vb
