Was anything different or were the parts the same as the ones that came out ? In other words are these parts updated "Improved" or the same ?


Improved.

Did they give any info Rob ? I'm just wondering what the problem is. If I should fix this myself. If its just the clutch then I'll do it. If it needs the trans replaced because its part of the problem then they need to fix it.

The transmission has a highly polished input shaft. The Clutch Hub is changed too.

Thanks Rob, Looks like where the pilot bushing rides it's worn real bad. When they did my car I found my old P/B in my console after I got home. But a new bushing wasn't charged out on the repair order. It should have a bearing and not a bushing with a dual disc clutch. Maybe that's why they replace the trans. Look at the very end of the shaft.

Grabber....thanks for the details. I am going to save this and show it to my tech. So when you say it went out on you, do you mean that it would not go into gear? Right?

I have a vert with around 2500 miles, built 4-07. So I guess I am doomed to a new transmission/clutch etc... (because of the before June 07 production date) I have noticed that it was hard shifting a few times but I always thought it was maybe my error. I have the hissing noise when depressing the clutch. So I guess I need to wait until it breaks ....since their is no recall? Right? Then will Ford cover it under the warrenty??

Thanks for the info Grabber.

Posted 16 January 2008 - 09:30 PM

My Senior Master Technician that installed my new FLYWHEEL, CLUTCH, & TRANSMISSION did a great job. My car was in a bay that was next to a roll up door that had a window in it from the outside, so I was able to watch the entire removal and installation. With a escort I was allowed in the service bay a few times to look things over.

My Tech. did the entire job himself except for lifting the transmission and adjusting the exhaust. Now I know why they call him a Master. He has worked there for 12 years. A true professional.

Here are a few tips that I have picked up on.
1.) The front of the motor has to be jacked up to get the proper angle to remove and install the tranny. If you have a carbon Fibre intake, it will need to come off so you don’t damage it, or remove the tower brace.

2.) Make sure you have the right flywheel before you start the job. Mine was for a GT and I had to get a GT500 one overnighter.

3.) After installation, the clutch hydrolics need to be blead off. My tech used a suction machine to get the air out.

4.) The Teflon lube gets applied to both Clutch splines and Tranny input shaft.

REMOVAL of the Transmission
It took 1 hour and 45 minutes for a master tech to get the tranny out. I watched him do it. These are the steps I watched.

1. Remove shifter.
2. Remove my JLT Carbon fibre tube & filter so it would not get damaged during jacking of the motor.
3. Remove front X pipe and Cat's. Temp support rear exhaust and sensor wiring.
4. Remove drive shaft.
5. Remove lower front suspension A arm steel tube brace.
6. Remove tranny X member.
7. Remove tranny.
8. Remove flywheel.

INSTALLATION of the new flywheel, clutch and transmission.
The installation of the new parts took 1 hour and 50 minutes. Then you will be ready for a test drive. These are the steps I watched.

1.) Install Flywheel.
2.) Install Clutch.
3.) Apply Teflon lube to splines
4.) Install Transmission and shifter.
5.) Install Transmission X support.
6.) install lower front A arm tube brace.
7.) Install Driveline.
8.) Install Front Cats and X pipe exhaust.
9.) Adjust rear exhaust tips.
10.) Hook up electrical sensors to transmission and Cats.
11.) Install stick shift handle and boot.
12.) Bleed air out of clutch hydrolics.
13.) Test Drive


By the time you check the car in and then the work is done and you do a test drive and then do the paperwork, it turns out to be a 6 hour job. I have some videos and Pic’s coming up that show some of the work.

Let me tell you that the car shifts like a different car. :shift: No hissing when the clutch is in nuetral and pushed in to the floor. No bumping of the syncros. Smooth shifting and down shifting. Now when I push the clutch in and put it in gear…it goes in right away. I can even down shift into 1st gear at a slow roll from 2nd. It is sweet. To describe the shifting is hard to do in words. It just goes into gear. You feel the click in the gearshift, you do not hear it. Not realy a click, but it feels like the syncros are open and ready to accept the gear. A true pleasure. Yes…a big difference. I also noticed that 4th 5th and 6th are smoother now too.
:happy feet:



Rob

Thats absolutly fantastic. I know your one happy camper !!!! ... Congratulations and I bet its nice having your car back the way it SHOULD drive !!

Grabber....thanks for the details. I am going to save this and show it to my tech. So when you say it went out on you, do you mean that it would not go into gear? Right?

I have a vert with around 2500 miles, built 4-07. So I guess I am doomed to a new transmission/clutch etc... (because of the before June 07 production date) I have noticed that it was hard shifting a few times but I always thought it was maybe my error. I have the hissing noise when depressing the clutch. So I guess I need to wait until it breaks ....since their is no recall? Right? Then will Ford cover it under the warrenty??

Thanks for the info Grabber.

Mine was not broke. It just was not right.

It hissed when the clutch pedal was pushed in while in nuetral for up to 4 seconds. During that time, it would not go into gear unless I forced it. It got better as the car warmed up, but still the syncros would bump.

Rob

Thats absolutly fantastic. I know your one happy camper !!!! ... Congratulations and I bet its nice having your car back the way it SHOULD drive !!

I am elated. You don't even know. I have been waiting for parts since Sept. Now I can have fun with my car again. Today I changed the oil in her and installed the Shelby lic. plate frame that I got from SAI Friday. Ordered some other dress up stuff for the engine compartment too.

It felt good to wash her today and then put her away.

I had to drive it to the dealer in the Ice yesterday. I white knuckled that.
