Anyone used studs before? I was thinking about it should be a little stonger. TSR sells them.

What should the bell be torques to when I put it on? The book lists the pump to case torque specs as 15 ft/lbs. Will that suffice or should it be more? Or should I drill out the threads and put some inserts in there?

NO!!!!! you may want to take it back apart someday amd unless you want to strip the bolt holes. I would just slip the gasket on and tighten the bolts to specified torques....

Are you talking about the gaskets under the bolts?

the gasket under the pump in place, the copper gaskets under the bolts, and torque to speck.

Just something to add. Take a careful look at the threads in the bolt holes for the pump/bell. If the trans has ever been apart, the chances are good that some of the the threads are worn/partially stripped. The aluminum in this area is soft. You would time/money ahead to go ahead and helicoil all 7 of them while the trans is apart. My last stock case had 4 of the seven helicoiled over 3-4 teardowns.

Thanks David. I just got a new drill press for Christmas so that might be a good thing for me to do...

I would suggest putting a little silicone around the very bottom bolt. I've seen some leaks there when it wasn't done.

I advise using good RTV such as Ultra-Copper/Blue/Black in a couple areas. The original Ultra-Bells didn't have the o-ring grooves for the bolts and they ALL leaked if you didn't use RTV between the Bell and pump around each bolt hole, and possibly under each bolt head/washer. Even with the newer Bells I always use RTV in both of those locations. And they NEVER leak, period. As to installing studs I've never seen any real need for that. Plus you need to seal around the threads as trans fluid will migrate along them and leak out; albeit a small amount usually though. The big thing is to make sure no matter what method you use to cut the case is that you have sufficient clearance for the Bell to sit flush on the pump and not hit the case anywhere. Also clean any paint/rust off the pump surface before assembly.

Thanks. I'll double check the case to bell clearance. Is one threa dinsert better that another? Is there a difference between Keenserts and Helicoils?

I've always just used Helicoils. Never had a problem with them. The other important part is an inch/pound torque wrench. An accurate one. Wink

Block plate

Post  racerk_2000 on January 27th 2010, 2:40 am

When running the ultra bell do you still need to use the metal shim plate between the block and the bell housing?
