Well, as many may recall I blew the 8 3/4's ring and pinion the last time out last year. Since then, I've purchased and installed a new Dana 60, and 727Jim is in the middle of the trans. rebuild. This was a fresh rebuild on the trans. and everything checked out good, and Todd440 and I used good parts in it when we rebuilt it. The trans. worked pefectly right up until the rear-end failure. This is good reason for tearing down the trans. after a rear end failure.


This is the front planetary. Can you see the stripped splines on the inside?


Bad photo, but this is the strut bar for the front band tension. Its suppossed to be straight!!


This was a brand new bolt in sprag. All the bearings and springs are missing because they were all over the place.


This is the thingy that holds the bearing and springs for the over-running clutch. Ouch!!!

So, I've gathered that after a rear-end failure, the 727 is like a box of chocolates. Youre never sure what youre gonna get. Use a bolt in sprag and a trans. blanket or shield if youre gonna race it. This could have been much worse..

Todd's the man too!! I just had Jim do this one because I'm too busy to get in to it myself like I would have wanted to with Todd, plus I know Todd is busy bustin' tale on the new Coronet. Anyway, I guess its the "shock" of the break in the drivetrain that causes this. sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you dont...

Gary, sorry to hear about the breakage! It can be brutal, the front drum sawed its' way right out of a friends barracuda years back, up through the floor, dash, and out the windshield! He was lucky, and only got a hot fluid bath!

Greg, I consider myself fortunate. On this particular day I did not have my trans blanket on. I was playing with a new fitting on the trans. earlier in the week prior, and didnt have time to put it back on. It could have been real bad news...

I am going to speculate, since it was asked why.

When the rear end gears break, the trans goes from loaded to unloaded. Then as the rear parts catch a tooth or something, it gets loaded again. This ON-OFF-ON action is what can "disrupt" the rollers/springs in the sprag. This is why manual reverse valve bodies with no rear band apply in 1st need special care when driving in 1st.

Once those rollers start flying around in the trans, something can easily get hung up and the torque of the motor shocking the aluminum splines in the front planetary can strip them right out (output shaft jammed, motor going 6000 rpm suddenly all most stopping except for the torque converter).

Then again, maybe the splines stripped first, causeing weird rotations in the rotating parts that allowed the sprag to come apart.

striped front planets and blown roller clutch failures are pretty common.
4 pinion planets are preferred when building TFs for high performance applications, and most replace three planet pinions when doing the rebuild. there are different splines on the output shafts and one can easily mis match planets and output shafts. I'm building close to 20 years and I've made the mistake we are all human.
as far as the rear roller clutch failure I agree the loading and unloading the transmission in 1st gear will definitly cause the failure. most are under the impression that bolt in sprags will eliminate the failure but in reality it just saves the case.
Just my .02

"loading and un-loading" is what the darn tires did all year.. Lack of traction/good suspension can prove costly...

I hate to look at that stuff because right at the moment, I'm rebuilding mine. I was cleaning my planetaries just a hour ago. I was told putting in one of those bolt in sprags was a waste of money too. I put it in anyway. It's a numbers-matching case and I don't want to risk destroying it if I did something stupid or even accidental, heck, your damage was caused by a failure of another component it seems. Your scenario could happen to anyone. Thanks for sharing the info. I wish I had a couple extra parts to throw your way.

whats the use of this car going to be ? if its out and being rebuilt , and you are concerned with hurting it then NOW is the time to get another case . the bolt in cam for the overrunning clutch (sprague) will only stop the case from stripping , it will not stop a total failure that can and will break the case into multiple pieces .



CDignition showed us a pic last year of his grenaded trans , the front drum came apart and the trans case broke into many pieces ..


running up my post count some more .

Hey JohnRR, the bolt in sprag was $33. The Red-Head anchors from which I pulled the sleeves from cost $1.65. It took me 20 minutes to install. If I told you I spent $13 on a brand new output shaft support, you'd probably tell me I wasted my money on that too. Get lost!

sorry about your tranny man. i wanted to get my 904 slapstik redone for more of a racing spec. i dont know trannys, but it has to be able to take up to 400 or so hp, and i will drive it on the street alot. but wheni hammer it i want it to launch.. the guy at the treanny shop said he can get my tranny up to that and a new tq converter for 750, am i being ripped off or is this a good deal? what shoul i ask him to do to it to get that kinda performance?
