Well my Borg 34 element sprag showed up today!! Another part to add to the pile for spring rebuild.
Wow, Made in USA, amazing!
Yeh it's a nice looking good quality piece!
you wont have any issues with that part........just make sure when you put the race on that when holding the drum the outer race and sprag facing up, that the outer race free spins in the clockwise direction. it will go on both ways, if backwards you will feel stopping power the instant you go into thrid gear like you never dreamed was ever possible........I know this from personal mess up................I will never ever make that mistake again. lol
I've read that a few times that it MUST be put in properly or I'm in trouble! I've burned that into my brain for sure lol
I did that on my first 425 fwd cadillac transmision build.
UPDATE: Today I bit the bullet and ordered a custom built 9.5" torque converter from Jim Weise at TSP. So a transgo 1-2 kit and a new flex plate from TA is all that is left to get for this TH400 rebuild.
And it arrived!! JW "the wheel" flex plate and Transgo 1-2 kit is enroute and should be here soon.
JW flex plate arrived today, just waiting for the transgo kit!
So my transgo kit showed up last week but I've been super busy with work. Now that all the pieces are here it's time to find some time to drop the trans and get to it!
