Need some info from someone that builds Powerglides. I purchased new blue drive plates and I was sent the thin and thick ones mixed together. The difference is the metal that the material is bonded to. Can these be used together or need to be seperated when used. Also; Where do you measure for the proper clearance for the drive clutch. Have a book that tells how to do this, Can't understand what they are saying.

Thanks First, the book was calling the plate with the sun gear a pressure plate. Same thing, different name. Thats what stumped me. Thank again, Mansfield

Does anyone know how much the high pressure spring from TCI bumps the pressure up. I can't find any numbers anywhere.

Your right Powerglides. I bought the blues for just under seven dollars, can't remember the exact cost now. I want to put a heavy duty spring in the servo, and was also wondering what pressure spring to use. Question: Does a Transgo Shift Kit raise the line pressure and which would be best, a duel O-ring servo or a duel cast ring servo. Would a Powerglide with a rear pump perform as good as one with out a rear pump. Thanks,

Pump pressure should be between 150-170# at about 2000 rpm. The heavy duty spring goes in the valve body not the servo. The spring in the servo simply takes the pressure off the low gear band when the tranny is in high gear. The stock servo is fine because at racing speeds the pump puts out about 5 times the oil that the servo needs so leakage is not an issue. Call Mike Sweet at Precision Powerglides he can sell you the individual pieces. 585-738-9166.
