clevo trans

Does this sound like it'll do the job It does look promising. I'm having issues getting details about their trans from them. I hate not knowing whats in the box because usually is breaks or falls out. I don't see why it's such a big secret? Some will only quote verbal without any writen quotes.

Supply and rebuild C10 to suit 700hp.
Transmission will include:
PTC Hy Tuff Input Shaft
PTC Chrome Moly 4 Pinion Forward Planetary set
Forward Pattern Valve Body (custom done via the builder not bought)
6 Friction Forward Clutch
6 Friction High/Reverse Clutch Pack
Kevlar Intermediate Brake and
Kevlar Low/Reverse Band
Added Needle Roller Bearings
New Lock Down Dipstick and Tube
High Speed Bleed Modifications
Modified Lubrication Circuits
Precision Machining

PRICE includes GST
C10 700 hp Full Manual Transmission $2200.00
Includes $ 200.00 GST

If your car has the ground clearance, a deep cast alloy sump will greatly strengthen the transmission assembly; provide more fluid and aid in fluid cooling. Add $220.00

Re: clevo trans

Can't say the company yet as I'm still talking $ with them. They do build quite a few autos that drag. I've seen their stickers on race cars. I should know the extent of the $ offer today hopefully. I have two companies so far that are particularly interested due to how harsh I am on C4's. They are interested in using me as a test mule in trans stregth in aid to also develop a stronger trans.

The other trans shop @ $2725 is a firm figure but to my knowlege thats no deep aluminium pan.

Re: clevo trans

When we raced the Cortina I had Jimmy Walton do the box for that, we ran a 600 hp cevo throught one of his Power Glides after to many C4 and C10s and I must admit they are one tuff trans. The only thing we ever did to it between rounds was change the oil. It can be a real pain in the arrs when thing go wrong. Good luck with it all.

Re: clevo trans

In terms of clamping pressures and longevity of planetaries etc, apparently the secret is in the oiling mods and pressures. This is where you go beyond "shift kit" territory.

PS
The most common C4 failure i have seen is the planetaries exploding. Several US companiies make 4 and 6 pinion upgrades (the standard one has 3) Only one Aust specialist that i know of upgrades these (to 4, not 6) because it is apparently an oiling issue destroying them, not a strength issue. In other words, they cure the problem not fix the symptom.......

Re: clevo trans

I haven't had one offer any less than the 4 pinion as yet. Thats a good thing. The main two I am looking at do changes to the oiling ciruits

I am running the 4 pinion one. I dont know if i was ripped off or what, but it cost $650. They also claimed it was tutrified?? It has stood up well so far. I killed about 8 c4's due to this planetry failing and putting metal through the box. Also the deep pan is no fun over speedbumps. If i drive though maccas with just me in the car, the filler plug just scrapes the bumps, and my car isn't all that low either.
Just remeber, your C4 would be running fine without the shuttle thingy problem. This new one should work a treat.

Re: clevo trans

Should do. My concerns for the next engine I put infront of it. The current engines getting close to it's power limit without a major upgrade. I'm hoping the next engine will have around 500ftlbs of torque So it'll be giving the auto hell.

I'd still like to find out about the solenoid that locks up the convertor the crochunter spoke about. I searched the net and found it mentioned a few times but found no real details about it. Locking up the convertor would be nice My wallet would love to lessen the load of fuel bills.
