Re: 500hp build?
Yeah, I hadn't purchased the Broader list yet, was debating between the new drum with pre-installed clutches or just clutches and old drum.
I blew up a roller planetary in a 700r4 once with only a 427 stroker, different design, yes, and maybe I'm just a worry nelly, but, already have it purchased and no one else has posted yet. So no worries I suppose.
I'm buying the #9 roller. Unsure if I should do the oil mod though, since it's a bearing and not a thrust washer. Will probably consult Broader with that question.
I do realize I said 500hp, but with already doing the other upgrades, I'm just trying to make it as stout as possible. Hence the red clutches.
All the bushings look new in my trans, even the #9, but was original, even had the dipstick plug in the pan. Even so, I was going to replace them, and broader had the cheaper bushings, readily available, that's why they're in the cart.
Will also be doing the pump check ball mod.
Only mods that I could find were the #9 thrust washer oiling, front pump check ball, and welding the front drum. I can't weld the front drum, as I don't have the machining capabilities after welding it, and will just end up with the stock drum, since the only aftermarket drum that I can find is Billet, and $500.
