Replacing Worn Cylinder Blocks and/or Center Case
Is your transmission experiencing a loss of power? Diagnosing this issue can be a daunting task. As always, we recommend seeking the expert opinion of your local service dealer; however, if you want to address the issue yourself, here is some helpful information.
Finding the Root Cause
In the majority of cases, power loss can be traced to one root cause, the cylinder blocks and the center case need to be replaced. If you plan to repair this issue, it is critical to replace all components. This would include two cylinder block assemblies with new pistons and springs and the center case. If the cylinder blocks or the center case has damage due to wear, then the related parts will also require replacement. If all parts are not replaced, it is very likely that you will have another failure within a short time.
There are many misguided blogs on the internet that say you can save money by not replacing all components. This may be true in the short term; however, it will drastically shorten the life of the parts and likely cause a situation for additional repairs. In this scenario, we have found that future repairs require replacing all related components.
To that end, we offer a complete repair kit that includes the center case, cylinder block assemblies, gaskets, filters, and sealant.
