The transmission input shaft receives the power when the clutch is engaged. I wasn't extremely pleased with our conversation. The second to third shift is one that is particularly difficult with the stock shifter. The frag from that took out everything else that was busted. Whether it be regional service rep, maintenance tech, service manager at the dealership, etc.
My suggestion is that if you determine a cooler is needed, search out others who've successfully done it and can provide you the properly matched cooler to fit the needs. The transmission function is to move the vehicle from a rest position to motion. In a lot of ways, the new transmission succeeded. If you look closely, you can see the bronze pads installed. This causes unnecessary movement of the entire shifter assembly, contributing to difficulty in shifting properly. It's probably working to my advantage they don't have a ton of people with modded cars coming in with transmission issues. Im running the stock trans, rxt, barton shifter, clutch line, and motor mounts.
I'm not an owner with a supercharger, nitrous, or turbo setup that's pushing the limits of the design. I've had issues with mine the day I purchased it. Unfortunatley for us, no one sells anything that really make these stronger. It took some talking but eventually they agreed. I should note they reinstalled the rear support backwards the first time around. The factory pressure plate doesn't seem to be as fast as we would like to shift.
Basically any shifting circumstance beside putting around nice and easy. Deysha any new information on your end? The shifter and bracket were a huge money saving decission which I full heartedly agree can easily be improved on. On cars that are 50 years old, the rubber seals often rot away, odd things break, etc. Probably not but now that it is all behind me it is way better that the old notchy 4spd that was in it. In the end I'm not looking for a free lunch or to bad mouth Ford. My clutch failure was due to heat, which caused the hub to fail. Sometime within the first 5k miles I started noticing an issue shifting into 4th gear whether it be underload, briskly, rev-matching from 5 to 4 on decel, etc.
That comes from the stock bracing and bushings both of which the meg replaces. I was just told today the parts are shipping and will be in next week. Is much safer, with crumple zones, air bags, cushioned interior, and way better brakes. If anyone has a similar story or useful information that would be greatly appreciated. Truck freight and oversize charges still apply unless otherwise notes and can only be shipped to the lower 48 States.
I have had an overall good time dealing with Ford Service and customer relations. Take a look at the 1965 289 cubic inch Ford Mustang. However, that being said I want to enjoy my car. The transmission should be able to withstand much more then it does. The only other thing you can do, is have the gears treated rem polished synchros hand dressed, weld the forks some are just spot welded polish the sliders and synchro hub.
Except for a few special models Shelby Mustangs, Boss. Free Shipping Offers are for Standard Ground Delivery service and are only valid for shipping addresses within the 48 Contiguous United States. Knowing how many Mustang owners drive their cars hard I can only imagine the issues. Not to mention a way to test the gearbox for issues before it is shipped across the Country or World. While that may seem to be a good thing to some people I hate driving a car which I am in constant fear of breaking.
I upgraded the shifter, clutch line, fluid, motor mounts and disconnected the skip shift. I think any type of driving that requires quick gear changes will accelerate the wear and eventually fail a part, which in return could damage more parts. This power is delivered from the engine flywheel, to the transmission. Most common issue with getting stuck in 3rd or 4th gear is a failure of the factory fork pads. Called Revolution Automotive this morning, I take the car down next Monday morning, they're going to do their Stage 1 upgrade as well finding the issue I've been having, gonna have them install an Exedy Mach 500 clutch as well as an Exedy slave cylinder, I'll post up a full review after I get the car back.
Mike, thanks for the photos. The car wouldn't shift into any forward gear reverse, 1st, 3rd, 5th. The quality construction of our aftermarket shifters and shifter bracket will make missed shifts a thing of the past. What frustrates me the most is the fact the transmission proved to be the weak link. Oh, I'm in another whole country from you but, thanks.
I have contacted the Ford customer hotline and started a case. I'd be interested in hearing how that goes. My first car was 2007 Ford F150, I loved. My uncles took me to different local car shows where I got to see all the older muscle cars. And the only colors that are missing are Brown, Orange and Yellow, and that's because Ford didn't make Brown or Orange, and the Yellow one is being used as a taxi. I'm in the 11s on the car and driving 439 flywheel horses through the box, according to my times and weight.
