Gave my trans a nice overhaul! More info in the build thread.
I got a Transgo Shift Kit, Mopar updated solenoid pack, B&M Drain Plug kit, a Filtermag magnet, and some other small goodies.
Some pics from the Transgo HD2 Shift Kit and the new solenoid.
The five holes are accumulator pistons and inside the pistons are springs. Five springs, all five inner piston seals, the switch valve and cap, as well as the plate to hold it all in will be replaced!
The springs are much stiffer in the shift kit. The new one is on the right.
As for the piston, my finger is pointing to the seal the is going to be replaced. It is replaced with an expander and a new ring.
The new switch valve and cap are on the bottom. They are claimed to be self lubricating.
And the new reinforced plate to cover it all up!
And the solution to my problem to begin with, the new solenoid!
All finished up and ready to be reinstalled!
