SunCoast remedies this by replacing these plugs with a much better design with improved sealing rings to correct this issue. SunCoast replaces the factory intermediate shaft with a new billet piece in all of our full competition units. Overdrive Planet Assembly When the Torqshift planet assembly is exposed to higher torque loads, or repeated stress, it will shatter. When moving in reverse, we have seen the pressure plate experience some radial movement within the case. This is typically the last part to fail.
Remember to soak all of your clutches in transmission fluid for thirty minutes before you install them. SunCoast replaces the factory ring gear hub with a much stronger billet piece. We have seen catastrophic failures with just a small tune. The 5 forward gear ratios on the Torqshift, starting with first, are 3. This one is for a Ford 5R110W transmission found in the 2003-up Ford Trucks with 6. This manual — and all the Automatic Transmission Service Group manuals — were developed working closely with the manufacturer, resulting in the best reference material a transmission mechanic can get their hands on. On the Torqshift, once the tow haul mode is activated, it can help increase the drivers control when towing large loads up and down steep grades.
In a clutch to clutch transmission the brain is even more important than ever. This one will be handy at rebuild time, but for what I actually needed right now its a swing and a miss. Center Support The center support on a transmission is a critical component that could make the difference between a successful vs. At SunCoast each one of our units receives a new custom redesigned center support that corrects these issues. Please see the item's listing for a specific list of what is contained in each kit Having trouble deciding what 5R110W transmission rebuild kit is right for you? Remember to subscribe and like the video. The pinion gear itself does not implode, but it is the planet housing that fails. This will cause shifting issues along with premature wear and burnt clutches.
It is common for similar vehicles to have multiple transmission options available from the factory. You can purchase our 5R110 overhaul kits with or without molded rubber pistons. Too many times we see these shafts shattered to pieces. This will result in loss of shift solenoid control pressure and numerous shift complaints. We often see builders refer to the torque ratings.
These transmissions can be found in the following vehicles; however you should double check your application with the bolt count. The SunCoast Full Comp Iron Horse transmission utilizes only Aeromet shafts, not 300M, not 300 Maraging, not Vascomax. Either way it is still a five speed unit with six forward gear ratios available, depending on cold mode or hot mode of operation. Ford Trucks 5R110W TorqShift Transmission Rebuild Repair Manual comes from the Automatic Transmission Service Group, producers of repair, rebuild and maintenance manuals for Ford and many other manufacturers. Information such as tire size, gear ratio, and reciprocating mass can all play a role in the torsional fatigue that occurs on these shafts. On our Torqshift valve bodies, each one is custom calibrated to fit our customers needs.
This transmission was later replaced with the 6R140 when Ford released the 6. When in hot mode the transmission will shift 1st gear, 2nd gear, 3rd gear, 5th gear ratio 1. You can purchase our 5R110 banner rebuild kits with our without molded rubber pistons. In cold mode the transmission shifts 1st gear, 2nd gear, 3rd gear, 4th gear, 6th gear. Fatigue is something that occurs over time after repeated stress. The Center support acts as a stabilizer, just as our lower back and abdominal muscles support us.
While torque capacity plays an important role in determining the needs, there are also many more factors that must be considered when choosing a shaft in your new unit. A secondary shift sequence is commanded when ambient temperature drops below 5° F and shifts 1st-2nd-3rd-4th-6th. Intermediate Shaft The most often overlooked shaft in the Torqshift transmission is the intermediate shaft. The gear ratio for 1st gear was lowered from 2. The Torqshift was Ford's first attempt at adaptive control. For 2nd gear the overdrive clutch is applied to provide a ratio of 2. The Ford 5R110W is a redesign of its 4R100 transmission.
The original design of the Torqshift valve body included five hydraulic pressure switches. It will also minimize shifts and it maximizes the available torque. Here are some of the improvements we make on all of our competition Torqshift transmissions: Input Shaft Input shafts are, and will always be, an issue with the Torqshift transmission. This unit was introduced in model year 2003 in the F Series Trucks and the Excursion vehicles that are equipped with the new 6. While the more expensive grades such a Maraging, Vascomax, or even the much coveted Aeromet, have a stronger yield rate, they are much more resistant to fatigue. With the potential damage to the shift solenoids, we replace and flow test each solenoid that goes in our Torqshift valve body. Our 5R110 master rebuild kits contain an overhaul rebuild kit, high-energy friction module, band, oil filter, new molded rubber pistons, full steel module and a master bushing kit.
