I am working on installing a BTS converter and Valvebody. Brain was a great help but doesn't work weekends The directions are pretty vague that came with the parts. The converter comes with a "torque converter regulator spring" that is supposed to be installed into the transmission pump. Has anyone pulled the tranny pump and can you just use threaded metric rod and a piece of flat bar pulling against the engine mounting surface to pull it? Thanks in advance
I took two bolts that fit the pump and welded nuts on the end of them that allow me to thread on a slide hammer. I have two slide hammers and and evenly pull it. With one slide hammer you need to alternate back and forth so that you pull it evenly.
The threaded rod and angle iron worked great. For the people doing it under the truck like me remember to take out the tranny filter. That was a good heads up from a local tranny shop. I have the pump off now and cant figure out how to get the torque converter spring out. I wish I had a digital camera to help describe what I am talking about. The spring is held in the pump with thick threaded sleave of some kind. Anyone have any idea's? If not I am sure Brian could help in the morning.
I have been in touch with Brian. A pleasure to work with, I must say. And he did tell me to change it out. It is a bunch of work however. I am getting a friend over to help me move the tranny back under the truck and bolt it to the transfer case. I have no real complaints other than its tought to get questions answered on the weekends
On a side note I have been looking into injectors, tuners, and a supplier for a turbo and mounting kit. I have nothing but great experiences with Carson Stauffer Diesel, Rosewood Diesel, Jody at DP-tuner and Bill at PHP.
