Does the vehicle year matter?
June 9, 2015 - Author: CourtneyN
Question: Was wondering if a 2000 transmission would work in my truck. My truck is a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3 Liter 4×4 automatic. The 2000 is exactly the same as my 2001 but just different years.
Answer:Because of the electronics it will not… 2001 is all by itself. We recommend part number 400-3889 for $1314.50 plus a $600 core charge it will correctly match up with the electronics for that vehicle year.

1968 Corvette T5 of T5WC
June 4, 2015 - Author: bartbarton
I have a 1968 Corvette.
Question: I’m looking to drop a T-5 in my 68 vet. Was looking for a world class 1352-176, -182, -196, or -213. They all should be about the same. Was also wondering what kind of torque they are rated for. The engine I am running is a mild 327 with a rear gear of 3.08. I’ve seen some rated for 300 ft lb of torque and others for 600 ft lb torque. I don’t want to tear it up. I see that most of these sat behind a 5.0 liter F-body so I would think they would work behind a 327 with about 350 Hp.
Answer: The T5 will be a little light for the 327CID with 350 HP it will work if driven only and not a drag race car.
You would want the T5 Camaro World Class unit and this would have the mechanical speedometer provision required. There would be drive shaft mod’s, cross member mod’s and poss tunnel mods to be made
These are hard transmissions to come by but we could find and rebuild one cost would be $1700 outright no core required, plus freight. Give Scott a call toll free 888-824-2012 he can help you. You can find a complete list of transmission, rebuild kit and hard part for T5 transmissions on our site.

I have Ford, F350, 1988, 7.3Lt
Question: I see that you offer a transfer case saver for the BW 1356. Can you tell me what it is and how it works?
It is a modified oil pump retainer… The case is prone to wear where the pump retainer sits so the modified retainer (made longer) to prevent wearing thru and damaging the pump order:

Problems with Dodge NV4500
May 26, 2015 - Author: bartbarton
Question: I recently purchased a dodge cummins with a nv4500 tranny the clutch was weak after doing a couple engine mods so I decided to replace the clutch along with that I decided to upgrade to the bigger input shaft. When setting the end play of the new shaft I took 5th gear apart and went back together fine or so I thought, it no longer will go into 5th after reinstalling the transmission all other gears work fine including reverse except 5th. I have scoured the Internet for a manual before I take it apart to see what’s wrong so I know how to put it back together. And have turned up nothing. Do you guys offer a repair/ manual?
Answer: Sorry we don’t have a manual for sale. We assume something went wrong with the syncro slider assembly during the reinstall
The slider will go on backwards…. The pointed engagement teeth need to face the rear.

Why Tire Size is Important
May 8, 2015 - Author: CourtneyN
Question: I have a 1992 4WD GMC Sierra. The transmission gets stuck in neutral and reverse when it is backed up with transmission in 4 wheel drive any ideas?
Answer: As far as being stuck in natural or reverse, it shouldn’t make any difference to the transmission if it’s in 4WD or not as far as the transmission shifting unless there is a drive line bind like mismatched front and rear gear ratio’s or mismatched tires Not sure what the problem is suggest you verify it has not had any differential work as in one of the differentials being changed and creating a gear ratio difference… then I would check all tires.. should be within ½” overall diameter.
