I just installed the Sonnax Main Pressure Booster sleeve and Regulator valve, By Pass Clutch control plunger, the O-ringed end plug of the 2-3, 1-2 shift valve, added a retainer to the Solenoid Pressure Regulator Valve. New OD servo, Reverse servo, 1-2 accumulator piston and springs supplied by Factory Tech (Gregg Evans) and the 2-3 accumulator piston without spring. Installed also the Factory Tech separator plate B.
Committed the mistake of not taking care to fit the OD Servo pin in the band, and has no OD. So I need to tear down everything.
I asked Mr. Evans several times why hole #11 is missing in his plate but received no response. I sent an email to another gentleman in TCCOA but no response either.
Can you send me a drawing showing the ID of all holes of the separator plate?
After having learned about the J-mod, and other instructions posted on forums, I concluded the following could be made to the original separator plate:
Hole #1 - no drill
3- no drill
4- No drill
6- open to gasket slot size
8- no drill
11- no drill
What you say about it? However, I preferred to keep my plate and install the one from Gregg.
Any comments will be very, very, very appreciated. I am a rookie on this of course !
The tranny has 109 K miles. No codes, Erratic 3-4, 4-3 sometimes and 3-1, no blinking OD light. Made neutral two times at stop, and suddenly engaged in first hitting hard. - These were the symptoms.
