hole in tranny

hello all, [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
I am a new user here, been reading posts for awhile and have learned alot just reading. I have a problem.
I bought a 78 f150 with 360 locker rear end (not sure whaT)
not ure what kind of trasnny or transfer case i got eihter.
But ive had it for about a month and just yesterday i was drivin up the road in 3rd (oh ya its a 4spmanual) and i lost power [img]images/graemlins/bs.gif[/img] so i put clutch in revved er up and put back in 3rd and all was fine. WEnt to work this morning and came back home without problems. Went back out later and was coming back and same thing happennd. Then i dorve around and it did in 2nd and first after about 15-20 secs and one time i heard a cling and it did die once or twice..... i finally got back home and left it running while i went inside for flash light and it died so i went to start up agaiun but wouldnt and havent since.. I looked at where the tranny meets the block (the circle part) and right aqlong the bottom dead center theres a hole about the size of a dime (tiny bit smaller) is all jaggedy along edge looks like something shot straight out thats the only thing ive notcied sorry bout the long story and any help or suggestions is muchly appreciated, [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
thanks.

(oh yes manual locking hubs as well)

Re: hole in tranny

sounds like the clutch blew apart and put a few holes in the bellhousing. a good clutch usually goes for about $140 plus you need to have the flywheel resurfaced. to do it you need to pull the trans down or back really far, or pull the motor out enough to change it.

Re: hole in tranny

If'n it took some teeth off the flywheel, the starter wouldn't be turning anything ... but other than that - it oughtta start, ought'nt it?

Thoughta sumthin else, too - though I dunno if Ford ever used these (I've seen em on other makes) - but is there a position sensor down there on the bellhousing that coulda gotten obliterated?

Busted clutch could have everything all bound up.

Re: hole in tranny

If you wanted to see if it was a fuel problem why dont you just buy a can of starting fluid they only cost like 99 cents

Re: hole in tranny

Sounds like you are on the right track now, longview, but look at 80Bronco's advice on starting fluid before buying a bunch of parts.

Now you know...someone blew the clutch plate in the past though!!! I did that once while racing. Scared the [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] out of me.

Translation

Well I got the new fuel pump in and I made sure there was lots of fuel in the tank. I put gas in carb and it tried to fire... would run for about 5 seconds then cut out.... tried plenty of times, same thing, the fuel filters are all clean and not clogged. Took off the line from filter to carb, not clogged.. She then started. Put her back in and fired her up. It ran but then idled ****ty. Took her round the block but when I pushed (put) the clutch I would have to give it gas or she'd choke. I got back to house, let it idle (roughly) shut her off, tapped firmly on the carb housing, fired her back up and shes been running nice since; so I'm thinkin the float is sticking or something...... Also got a new minor problem need some welding one of the brackets holding the transfer case to frame. It is snapped. Gotta get her welded soooooooon... thanks all
