Roasted Trimatic Part II

Image: 

As per my previous post of the roasted Trimatic
This is the picture of the servo cover - The cover you remove to adjust the bands. The owner only has put transmission fluid in transmission - & the Gearbox has only got reverse & 1st gear.
I have never seen a box this bad either..
The oil is thin & smells like burnt transmission fluid.
The box is in this condition due to owner abuse, No burnouts or anything like that just no maintenance

little vic cruise

Image: 

Hk prem, red Barron, porch monkey, a mustang and myself went on a pub crawl around the Vic bay yesterday.
Stopped at Queenscliff but the markets made it impossible to stop the traffic was hectic as.
So cruised around to indented heads.
Had a great feed out in the garden lounge and a few ails.
Headed on to portarlington but took some dragging away from the great atmosphere from there.
Porchy munro decided that the gas was needed and lucky the only fuel stop in 25 ks was open , but he got there at 2 10 and it closed at 2 (some smooth talking was needed to get the pump in the beast.
Off to drysdale for a quick one then into geelong for a drive through town.
said out good buys to porchy and headed for the smelly river .

roasted Trimatic

Image: 

My sisters boyfriend said his gear box was slipping for a while & when he came over i said i would have a look at it. So finally i got around to it today - When I took the pan off i pronounced it DEAD.
Its only got drive - Oil is black as black...
So i told him to piS the car off or gear another gearbox.
Posted the picture as i have never seen tranny oil so black.

Pic for Hem_Den, trimatic rear mount with 4L60.

I made a few measurements (approximate only - measured with rule). Trimatic / Aussie rear mount distance between centres of mounting holes is 93.5 mm. 4L60 mounting holes between centres is 96.0 mm. 4L60 bolts may also be slightly larger than the trimatic mount holes.

Using a trimatic mount directly bolted to the transmission, and using factory crossmember lifts the rear of the transmission up by about 30 mm (compared to trimatic). This did not cause any problem for me because the engine is mounted so that the crankshaft axis is about 30 mm higher than factory. The suspension is 25 mm lower than standard so everything lines up again.

For interest, some other dimensions (approximate only):

Front face of bellhousing to rear mounting holes, 4L60 = 550 mm. Trimatic = 600 mm.

Loaded for the trip home

Image: 

I finally got around to bringing my other Q back to Perth. It gave the 253 a good workout. Bloody gutless thing it is, I had to change down out of 5th to fourth to go up some of the hills on the trip home.

Just bought another car, better then Rhys's HQ :P

Image: 

Went to the tip to get rid of a heap of rubbish in my clean out this shed mood and came home with this lol. The bloke drove me home in it, runs fine, got the battery, 3 brand new tyres, + spares. Runs like a dream uses no oil or water but has a blown head gasket between the two chambers or something. Ill play around with it then its off to farm duties. Oh and its a Daihatsu Charade 1980 model.
The only reason i bought is that my girlfriend has a new daewoo and always tells me i should get one like hers caus their better then my VK. So i did it :)
Guess How much i paid?

Impco experts.

G'day everyone, hope your all enjoying your weekend. Very soon I'll be fitting this Impco model L to my tonner & want to know if I can mount it like this. Does the top have to be at the top (I know that sounds stupid but I have to ask). If I were to mount it on its side like this I think it would be a lot neater but I can do it the proper way up if need be. Would like to know what you all think.

Cheers Kale.
