It's critical speed is somewhere around 14000 rpm. I was kind if insistent. It is truly like having a 5 speed automatic. At the end of my appointment I got to chat with Mr Carr himself. This intense, high-resonant frequency vibration would kick in as I began to wind 4th gear up past 105mph through 130+ mph.
Thanks, Jim The 4L80e will take far fewer mods. Again, this is my experience. Going to make all the body stiffners. It's critical speed is somewhere around 14000 rpm. The gearing is perfect for long distance cruising and hot street action.
Install pump without o-ring and gasket to check the overdrive unit end play. Was talking to a friend in the car club yesterday. How do you think the 1-2 gear change will affect it running a 4:10 rear gear? A friend gave me the instructions from this kit and this is the only modification I use from them. It was spot welded rather lightly before this from the factory. Hope so, I really hate to give up the 4th gear so I'll spend the money needed to make it run again. It is one huge piece of aluminum. This is where the setup is crucial so I have been told and read.
Let me know how it works out. You have to pay him and then go to court. My brother lives in Vegas. Ken Duttweiler, builder of several of the fastest Turbo Regals has the Art Carr touch on all their transmissions. This allows the lock-up clutch to apply faster due to no restriction for exhaust of the oil If you notice the check ball has a small hole the allows oil to pass by the check ball at a certain rate. I forgot what the second one is called hate getting old.
The 200-4R is free of such nonsense and is ready for big-block overdrive blasting with only minor beefing. He's going to install that for free for me. Afterwards, I received a strong recommendation from a tech guy at Summit who said Jim Campbell in Brimfield nearby is a well-known expert on rebuilding and racing with 200-4Rs. . You can also search near a city, place, or address instead.
I will be getting another from him for a different car as soon as the tooth fairy brings me 2k. I tried to tell him I needed his advice but he just transferred me to the front desk, cutting me off. That includes a 2400-2800 stall converter. This can cause all kinds of problems. I used to go every year but the prices kept going up and then I moved a little further away. Kevlar 2nd gear band Copper washer for the input drum Hardened spline stator suport New bearings and plates if required. By that time I had had it with him and said, correct me if I'm wrong, but you said if I buy a stacked plate cooler I can buy the same size and get 5 times the cooling? Assemble main drive to snap ring on output shaft.
I told him the transmission pissed out more than that on the way home last night. When I bought the car, it had a blown up 400 sbc. I'm sure it's searchable using my screen name. Not sure why someone like Art Carr cant figure out how to do this, but the lock-up converter is something I would never want to be without. Swapping to a manual valve body in the 80e can be done but it requires some mods, I'm told. Is this something most performance trans suppliers use in their builds? They should be the same on your big block, but he can guide you on that. I did use a high quality torque converter with 3000 stall and 3 carbon fiber lock-up clutches from Precision of New Hampton, ask for Milt.
Also trash the little orange filter ring on the filter tube and use 2 o-rings. The Art Carr I called was in Texas. Saturday the forecast called for rain Sunday night. I tried my best to document the swap in a thread last year. If you are a picky as I am you will do this 4-5 times to get the clearance you want also helps to have all 15 front selective washers.
If I was bolting one of these to a built big block, I would use a Stage 3 from Extreme Automatics. When he found out I was planning to save some money by buying a few hard parts from someone else, he immediately changed his tone, said I was the expert and to just go back to the receptionist and place an order. I went with an Art Carr 200-4R three years ago. It isn't the cheapest way to go, but they have top-shelf customer service and put out a great product. My rev limiter cuts in at 6700 rpm, so in 3rd gear, I'm on the threshold of maxing out my driveshaft with my 3.
