Ok fired car off today only issues are timing light is junk(not a surprise) and trans is blowing coupling out while idling and in park.Pushing good amount of my FTI fluid out with it.

So we know guy who built trans mucked up something. Any ideas what I did wrong.Will be pulling trans out in short while so drop some ideas as to what I need to look for.

What do you mean you pushed the coupling out at idle?

Pressure at servo port could be anything from 180-300 depending on what spring is in it.

Driver shaft coupling,running solid shaft.Drive shaft not installed,just had coupling in to seal rear,didn't work too good. LOL beats cussing and sling stuff.

also ate fout intake adjuster on right side,so pulling head to find out why no oil. Also yanking transmission out tonight. Unless there is just more pressure there than I think.

Right after getting some vitamin A B as in Bud Light.

Well if the driveshaft wasnt in then put it in and recheck. Put a gauge on the servo port and see what you have before you take it apart and look for a problem tham may not be there

Yea was kind of hoping someone would just tell me I has pressure there and thats issue.

Was going to try drive shaft deal If can find 4 adjusters for motor. Found issue there,jet in block for oiling shafts stopped.plugged right now its plugged in trash. Damn oiling system on Hemi rockers has always sucked. Time to re engineer the design some.

Only reason had shaft out was ring gear missing 2 bolts.Plus firing car first time with bunch of new stuff and figured since going to be tunning motor and outside of car its just be safer. Not if you where behind trans when coupler came out.LOL

Going to check vent for trans also and see if some critter plugged it for me.

out

Is this a shorty glide? If so like already mentioned check the drain back from between the bushing and the rear seal. If drain back is plugged it will blow oil out past the seal as well as push the coupler out. There is probably enough pressure on that back bushing to push the coupler out even if the drain back is clear.

Taking into consideration the drain back is clear,
There "ARE" 2 gasket designs for the rear. 1 OEM and 1 race type.

This one is on the builder. Kit I had came with metal plate,no gakets. Assumed it was for blank off with longer shaft and tail housing.

In my defense if there is one.When you bolted it together with plate it would not allow cover to seat and I guessed maybe the cover was machined to seat and seal off. Did find it strange,but hey transmission stuff has change since I built glides back in late 80's. Yes I am getting old.

Lesson learned,Using my own joke a against me I guess I owe 10 bucks, education in America cost.

If this is the plate that is in there, yes it needs the gasket. Gasket matches plate for a pro brake.

An example, this VB will come with the plate.

I know when i ordered the complete kits, 1 for the shop and 1 in the trailer. The HD gasket of that design was not included.

If you are using a roller bearing,I have seen the housing need to be ground a groove to let oil out of the bearing

Being it doesn't have a gasket that is your issue. There is a drain back hole below the seal that feeds back to the case for drain back. Make sure this is clear. One other thing is to make sure the shorty cover is cut to use the plate. Some are and some are not. Typically with a shorty cover you will only need the gasket. Make sure when bolted on that you check for crush on gasket. We see them push on the yoke on our dyno without driveshaft and even push them out so dont be too alarmed.
