Tranny go boom

Recommended Posts

Well, yesterday afternoon was interesting to say the least.

I was driving to get some dinner,and after making a turn and driving again. The next thing i know i hear a boom and i suddenly have no gears. Forward, reverse, ect.

I had to wait for the tow truck to take me home. Dont know yet what happened until the tranny is pulled.

Well something broke... 

 

Strangely enough, so far I've been really lucky with my 5 speed. Never had a 5th gear issue. Then the day I broke the mainshaft I still continue driving to deliver a truck for its owner that I was towing on a trailer. The only gears I had was 1st, 2nd, 5th and Reverse... Still traveled the 20 miles on a broken main shaft. Just didn't have 3rd or 4th gears.

Well, im getting my truck back on monday after being fixed.

After the guy took my tranny apart he found my imput shaft twisted. So i talked to him on the phone last sunday and he says since you have this manny mods you should upgrade to the billit imput shaft. I told him that was in my plans for next year.so i just had him put a billit in it while he had it apart. So thats out of my way.lol

I wasn't planning on the billet input but eventually decided it would be good insurance.  I got screaming deal on a billet flywheel too when the one they ordered turned out to be wrong.  Truck was in the shop for 2 weeks,  I hadn't been without a truck since I was 16.  I had to borrow my sisters truck one day for a dump run and as usual I got stuck working on it too.  :-?
