When swapping a Dodge transmission into a Fordcummins truck, the builder should seriously consider using a hybrid transfer case with a fixed rear yoke. Featuring a tried and true heavy-duty design, the Allison is arguably the strongest transmission ever manufactured for a pickup truck of any kind.

I don't recommend them as an option for a transmission swap, unless your engine will break whatever is behind it anyway and you plan to rebuild or replace your trans after a few race events.
Transmission was replaced, there was a tsb regarding the direct clutch inner seal, mechanic told consumer this was what the problem was. Diesel engines are capable of creating so much additional torque that the transmission in many cases cannot harness the power. Click on part number to see details list of parts in the kit. Their transfer cases, mated to the overdrive housing, weigh about 80 lbs but have absolutely nothing in place to support them. Undo all the linkages and the indicator light wiring. Don't forget to completely flush the tranny cooler lines. Yep, you read it right, we're telling you to put a Ford transmission behind your Cummins.
He came out and greeted us. The primary bearings are tapered also, the input pocket bearing is a caged needle bearing. If two clutch packs are applied you get one of 6 forward gear ratios, if one is applied you get no movement, and if three are applied you get a bind-up or clutch drag! The deal was started on the phone while I was at work 1. This is a major safety issue and all owners of Dodge with this transmission should be made aware of the problem. It has the lowest reverse yet of automatics, so if you are backing heavy trailers up hills you may find that part of this trans very beneficial. The reworked drive shafts look better that new ones.

This is all because of the properly designed Turbine, Impeller and stator design. Fourth gear is a joke that Ford played on everyone- it never really gets used unless the control system isn't happy about something, and isn't worth using anyway- 5th is the same as the 4R100 3rd gear and 6th is the same as the 4R100's 4th. The contact had to downshift into fourth gear. We have updated our Select Shift Valve Body, for increased functionality, to feature improved elements for even better performance. The opening in the floor board may require slight modification. Easily installed in an hour by removing the console to access the shifter shaft from inside the truck cab.
All this over head presents a real problem when adapting to large power swings like a turbo charged diesel presents. This is all wrapped around the envelope that the engineers calculated to be the environment that the 68 transmission would live in. This is caused by the driver feathering the clutch to try to control engagement. You can see the entire line of products which we offer at www. One would expect to see a lower reverse ratio with the low 1st gear as well, but it is not as low as it should be. The billet stator directs fluid from the impeller back into the turbine to most efficiently harness the lost energy in the fluid that is not absorbed by the turbine.
The price for a new torque converter is included in my built transmission estimates. This adapter provides you with the proper clearances and speed sensor. Unfortunately the spacing between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gears is a bit too close for it to be ideal, so it's not much different than the 4R100 as far as gearing goes. Torque converters, valve bodies, shift enhancers, and electronic control modules are designed to prevent transmission slippage which prevents your transmissions ability to get the power to the ground that causes excess heat build up, frequently resulting in premature failure. Otherwise, that's it for parts. They are not as easy to find as the others listed here, and I'm not overly impressed with the gear ratios.
It has the lowest first gear ratio for an automatic, but the very unfortunate fact is that the low first gear is not complemented with an equally low reverse gear. Look far back into the space between the inner fender and the engine. You are going go want 10 ton jack stands to hold the truck up high enough to roll the trans out. As any enthusiast knows, wiring harnesses and electrical components can be the most difficult part to figure out when doing any sort of swap or conversion. Only negative was one of the studs on the back wheel was broke.
It has 119,000 miles on it. Gas versions may have cheaper planetaries and other hard parts in them so don't use one behind a high performance diesel without first sending it to a reputable transmission builder. Ceramic disc clutch kits work well for pickups that are intended for off-road use where the dirt allows for tire slippage minimizing the quick engagement nature of the disc. This prevents excessive vibration due to high driveshaft angle. All this allows the precision turning capability so the user cannot only control when each shift occurs and the converter clutch occurs, but the shift quality can be altered by changing line pressure along with tailoring the accumulator rate to optimize shift quality throughout the entire power curve. The Solid Flywheel Conversion kit quickly became very popular with truck owners and also allowed for flexibility in engineering clutch options with increased torque. He had to put the vehicle in fourth gear and take it to the dealership.
If you have 37 tires and a 3. Gear ratio calculators can be used to see the difference a 68 will make for you. Beginning in 2007, Dodge made the 6. These steel carrier bearing drop kits are powder coated for durability and include mounting hardware for a complete install. A simple fix and even I missed it. Ford ® 4R100 Ford 4R100 Ratios 1st - 2.
Some stand alone options may be better than others, so do your homework. Manual to automatic Dodge conversions will require a transmission cooler. Most manual trans swaps are fairly straightforward, be very careful to do your homework. Some changes are on the wind. Leaving the battery connected could mean a big short. What transmission is in my Dodge Ram? Not necessarily so with racing- as the early control systems are limited to converter lockup in 5th and 6th gears only- no 3rd lockup is available without tuning tricks that may or may not work. Remember that core charges may not be included in advertised transmission prices.
