    cam to crank timing onsohc

    I am doing the typical guide/tensioner replacement. I have the OTC tool set but I know my cam to crank time is not correct do to the broken jackshaft tensioner. I was reading the haynes manual and it states that the off center slot on the end of the drivers side cam should be down when at TDC...

    1999 Ford Explorer - No Reverse??? PLZ help

    if you do not have engine braking in low 1 then it is the reverse band. Put the explorer in 1 and drive to run the rpms up, let off the gas. if the engine does not maintain the current rpm it is more than likely the band. Typically if it is broke the engine will fall back to idle. Of course it...

    Solved TSB 02-7-6 4.0L SOHC Timing Chain Rattle

    if the jackshaft chain has jumped timing how do I get the crank and cams back in time. I have the timing tool set, so I know setting the crank @ TDC is no problem, but i am concerned about the cams to the crank.

    you have a broken balance shaft tensioner. I have the exact same one, in pieces sitting on my work bench right now. I found mine laying in the pan as well. the jackshaft tensioner is much larger than the pc you have. I ordered the tensioner from ford it was less than $30. the problem is putting...

    neeed help on 5r55e rebuild

    i only changed what came in the kit. I did intsall the spring from the superior kit though. I drove it some more last night and the braking issue gone due to adjusting the bands again it will actually shift correctly from time to time. I tried shifting it manually and it would shift...

    neeed help on 5r55e rebuild

    i readjusted the front and imed. band and the braking issue went away. Also the OD light does not flash. The trans shifts good except for now have a 2-3 flare, bad actually. Before this rebuild I had already redone the valve body with the superior kit, sonnax boost valve and the ford tsb...

    5R55E VB rebuilt, still no reverse

    I recently went through the same deal. I had no reverse, but I had manual 1, but I did not have engine braking. i went through the same steps as you have so fae and I finally pulled the tranny and found the reverse band to be broke right where the revse servo piston connected. so it is...

    neeed help on 5r55e rebuild

    I rebuilt my 5r55e due to a broken reverse band. The trans looked really good when I took it apart and it went back together rather easy. I used the master kit with new bands seals, clutches, etc. the results a re somewhat good. I have reverse and I have all forward gears, but only in D...

    master kit

    where is the best place to get the master rebuuild kit and reverse band for the 5r55e? I had a reverse band break, although I still had manual one. the trans looked really good but I want to go ahead and rebuild it since I have it out thanks

    reverse band?

    if I understand you correctly, i have all forward gears including od. they all seem to be in the correct place on the dash

    reverse band?

    i put the exp on jack stands and put it in reverse. it sounds like the trans tries to go in, it does not turn unless you move it with your hand. I put it 4lo and the trans would actually go into reverse and turn, but i could then stop it why my hands. it will not move the truck in 4lo...

    reverse band?

    like most others have said in the past, the dealer told me I have a broken band, which means new tranny. all of the gears work great, just no reverse and no engine braking in manual 1st

    reverse band?

    how far shold the screw driver go in before I hit the band? would manual one be working fine if the band was broke?
  21. D

    reverse band?

    yes, but no engine braking. All other gears are fine, fluid looks great and the filter is clean how much travel should the reverse servo pistion have? when I dropped the cover mine was as at the top of the bore

    reverse band?

    questions on 5r55e

    how does the transfer case effect reverse? I have heard the transfer case being bad when reverse goes out also i checked the travel on the reverse servo piston. When I gently place a long screwdriver into the piston rod hole it actually took more screwdriver length to touch the band than the...

    no reverse, very strange

    the piston is as far up as it can go, I will pull it back down and check it out. as far as the manual 1st, when I am in drive and manually downshift it will not go into first unless I am giving it throttle. If I let off the throttle and downshift it will not engage into first, only if I...

    no reverse, very strange

    the piston for the reverse servo was as far as it can go up into the bore when I pulled the valve body. It is also very difficult to get out. I looked at the bore and the new double lip seal and I saw no evidence of problems there. like I mention when the exp. is on jackstands you can hear the...

    no reverse, very strange

    transfer case seems to work fine. I put the tranny back togther about 2 weeks ago everything worked fine. I knew I needed a new valve body housing, which I just got so I made the change. The strange thing is that I had the ex on jack stands and had someone put it in reverse while running and...

    no reverse, very strange

    a few weeks ago I lost reverse. with glaciers help I found the problem to be the reverse modulator. I cleaned it up and put the superior kit, knowing that I needed to located a better valve body due to some damge I saw in the associate bore. well the tranie worked fine and I finally got a good...

    no reverse!

    I agree, it was not my preference to do that but I needed my ride. even if I only drive a week or two I will take my chances. I understand metals and all that good stuff as I spent over ten years in the investment casting field and a mech eng. for gas turbine engines. where can I find a valve...

    no reverse!

    i finally got the reverse valve out, not easy at all. I found that the valve as well as the bore wall had a few burrs on them, thus keeping the valve from moving. I used a rat tail file to lightly clean the inside of the bore. I also used a very fine soft deburring bit to clean the valve. I got...

    no reverse!

    the plug #59 was difficult to remove, it has some burrs on it. Also I am have trouble trying ot remove #62&63 and the spring inbetween. should these come out fairly easy. I bought the superior kit and the ford parts listed in the dairy. all is done but the above. also the superior kit ask to...

    no reverse!

    i removed the vb and the sep plate did not have any gaskets. mainly I wanted to know what the bore adjacent to the shift linkage bore control. I could not move the valve in the bore like the others. What does this control?

    no reverse!

    i tried a new sensor, no luck. I can pull the vb, but i really do not want to go much further than that. I build just everything I just tend to stay away from tranies. you mentioned a diary, what is that. I need to see what the vb is all about

    no reverse!

    thanks for the info i tried all of gears manually and all worked fine. i did goo done the road at high speeds as I am concerned about possible damage. I drove it in my driveway and the explorere moves just fine in all forward gears. I also put it 4hi and 4low and all forward gears worked fine...

    no reverse!

    i all of a sudden lost reverse in my 99 sport 4x4. forward gears are fine. I changed the fliud and filter and all looked really good. a local mechanic told me he thought the reverse band was broken, that was based on what I described to him. anyone have any suggestions?

    No Reverse, Forward Seems OK

    no reverse so what was the culprit? I have the exact same problem withmy 99 sport 4x4. Just went out one day. I changed the filter/fluid which actually looked good. I did not see any noticable issues with the valve body. Ford put a new vb in about 50k ago.

    more I currently have a sohc motor that I am experimenting with. The heads are at the machine shop right now. THey are being ported/polished, installing larger valves and regrinding the cams. Since the stock compression is already over 9 I am basically just going to make the bottom end...

    removal of t-bars

    yea, I just loosened the tensioning bolts and left them in the lower A arm and added the lowering brackets and reset the tension. I was told I needed it to remove the bars, I would think once the tension off I could tap them out of the a a arm and then use a puller to remove the adjusting arm...

    removal of t-bars

    I am considering changing my "D" rated torsion bars to "B" rated bars. When I did the 4 in. suspension lift we did not completely remove them. I have been told that there is "special ford tool" needed to remove them. Is this true?
