Guides power safely through the transmission thanks to innovative design and ultra-high-strength materials to stop spline twist and breakage. From high-quality, to , this is another critical area of the transmission Sonnax has fully covered. For foreign transmissions search in search bar above then hit enter. Fluid life starting in 1964 was extended from 12,000 mi 19,000 km to 50,000 mi 80,000 km , providing justification for the deletion of the drain plug from the oil pan. It was a direct replacement for the Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 series trucks.
Check out this video as high performance guru Gregg Nader shows you everything you need for the ultimate in performance and durability. For 1980, a wide-ratio gearset was released for the A904, A998 and A999, with 2. The buttons were generally at the extreme driver's side end of the dash, i. They are equipped with a lock-up clutch in the torque converter. Chrysler Corporation licensed this gearset from Simpson in 1955. Valve body is modified to allow torque converter charge in park to increase durability and enhance gear engagements. For 1964, the canister filter was eliminated, and the transmission's internal intake screen was replaced by an efficient filter.
Revolutionary servo keeps the clutch applied in even the most extreme applications to guard against band failure, broken shafts and staging issues. He believed in our team before the car was even finished and wanted to be a part of it. The base design from the original Torqueflite remains largely unchanged and the addition of a 2-speed output shaft overdrive unit that is bolted to the back of the 3-speed transmission has only two ratios: direct 1:1 and overdrive. The buttons were replaced by conventional steering column- or floor-mounted shift levers in all automatic Chrysler-built vehicles for the 1965 model year, though floor levers were available in certain sporty 1964 models. It was a direct replacement for the Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 series trucks. However, this was not always the case; the 1962 , a right-hand drive export model sold in and , used the U. We work with different manufacturers in the development of stronger parts.
The alternative, less-costly upgrade Wendell recommends is the , which counteracts pin bias up to 275 psi. Sonnax is one of the fastest growing companies in the state of Vermont. Gear ratios: 1 2 3 R Final 2. The A727 incorporated a parking pawl, with the sole exception of the 1962 Chrysler version, which had an extension-mounted drum brake. Her new car was built from scratch with help from some of the top names in drag racing, including one who happened to be trackside the day of the crash: custom transmission builder Wendell Dunaway of. Performance Automotive and Transmission Center has developed a full line of billet torque converters with lock-up for General Motors, Ford, and Dodge transmissions for applications ranging from improved factory performance to all out competition.
It was equipped with five direct friction plates. Instructions for all products will remain available on the Sonnax website — and are now faster and easier to find. This transaxle would be upgraded in the 1980s into the A413 and A670 units, which were progressively heavier-duty, for Chrysler's and their derivatives, including the minivans. These can be ordered in stall speeds of 1200 to 5000. We did everything we could to eliminate that risk, so this new Lead Sled is a whole different animal.
In 1968, part-throttle downshift functionality was added to A-904 transmissions used with 6-cylinder engines. This change was made to maintain acceptable in-town performance with taller final-drive ratios in the rear axle — 2. Just shows the demand for and popularity of the Powerglide.

This was used with Chrysler's 2. Gear ratios: 1 2 3 4 R 2. The transmission is the bones, and the converter is a tunable piece that can create either a really good pass or cruddy pass. Join an exciting front-line team focused on developing and delivering the best products in the industry, a team whose imagination, hard work and results are rewarded. Wear on them is very minimal.
Advanced manufacturing and precision engineering guarantee maximum durability from every component. Many of these torque converters have over size Red or High Carbon clutch lining and billet covers. In addition to her 1. Introduced in the 1989 model year on a limited basis, it was the first light-duty Chrysler four-speed automatic and was placed behind the 3. Previously, an automatic 3-2 downshift occurred only if the driver pushed the accelerator to the floor.
