Yes and have about .015. I am wondering about the rubber spacers in high gear drum that are between the steels.Idea is to reduce drag,wondering if this might whats biting me in butt.If nothjing else comes up think I will pull the out and give it a try.Thankfully PG is stupid simple.Guess not simple enough.COL
Pulled apart again and again.Finally pulled rubber spacers out.Guess wehat she turns fine and movement back and forth is lot easier too.Agree it shouldn't have issue.afterall they are inside drum and endplay is determined from parts and pieces outside of it.Unless there was binding on clutch hub?Plus had endplay,is more consistent reading now.
I did find bronze bushing in ATI aluminum pump is sliding in and out Might have been issue there? right now I know its working correctly and time to hit sack.Wouldn't have slept much thinking about it so stayed up to figure out.
Bsically you place cut pieces of o-ring between the steels in clutck pack.They fit into the recess are where steels lock in. Idea is to make the frctions have less drag when clutch pack is disengaged. The orings cause the steels to push apart and reduce frictional drag.
Monroes book on powerglide gives good pics and description of all aspects of it.
I doubt its anything you would see.Its more one of those little things that when added to few other little things you can see.Its l;ike how much differance in loosing 2 lbs off car.None but done 20 times it 40 lbs. and that should be .04. Just l;ike me buying aluminuim bolts for trans pan.14 5/16x 3/4 bolts is not much but it still less weight.Especailly after switching from factory case to JW case,Damn this thing is heavy.
forget the spacers. Just machine the high and reverse pistons to ONLY accept what clutches and steels you need. I set mine up with 1 more steel than clutches so I don't have a clutch touching the pressure plate and sun gear.
