Master rebuild kit, Kickdown band, and Kiggly 5-friction front clutch are on the way. I will probly get the center diff welded and remove VC while I'm in there. Does anyone know where I can get shot peening done for the gears?

Thanks, but all the funds I have are going twards the rebuild. I am in the market for a restalled torque converter if anyone knows of one for sale.

Is that the local shop you were thinking about going with? I have also heard good things about midwest performance converters. I am really just hopeing to find a deal on a used one though.

Master rebuild kit and Kiggly 5-friction front clutch showed up this week. I am planning on getting some work done on the transmission this week since I'm not working. I am still looking for a restalled 2g torque converter.

I did some work on the transmission today. I got all the clutch packs replaced and installed new seals on everything. I also found a broken seal on the front clutch apply piston. and a the Kickdown band was broken. Hopefully I have found all the issues and the cause of the burnt out front clutch pack.

I had to order a different thickness retaining ring for the front clutch pack that wount be here till next thurs. So no BIR for me. Might try for sept 15th. But I will probly be be broke by then since I keep buying more and more parts. I have a line on a converter and I am leaning twards the S90 TB.

Aaron have you driven your car mutch with the restall? how do you like it? have you tryed stalling it?

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic
 
So far so good, it's weird because it feels tighter driving around town,but looser on the highway.
Either way I'm liking it, I did try to stall it once and it worked really good compared to stock, I'm hoping to tune the launch this weekend.

The transmission is mostly back together I'm just waiting on getting my center diff welded. I was on the fence about welding the center diff because I want to keep the car as "streetable" as posable. But after opening up the ceter diff and inspecting it I am definitly welding it. the gears shims and shafts all show sighns of wear so I think it was just a matter of time till it failed.

I also got my Evo 3 intake manifold and Ebay S90 throttle body installed. hopefully everything will be ready to put the motor/trans back in next weekend.
