CJ Trans Swap.

I recently purchased an NV3550 from AA and swapped it into my CJ. Finished up the install tonight and backed it out of the garage.

The trans feels pretty tight and has a lot more audible gear noise then some of the other transmissions I have experience with. I searched and found some TJ owners complaining about theirs.

Is this just a common thing for this trans? My first reaction was that something was wrong and binding up but after driving slowly around it was not heating up.

I will call AA in the morning just wanted some feedback in the meantime.

Probably not hardcore, just more experience here.

Every NV3500 that I have seen, driven, owned, serviced has a bearing noise. Sounds almost like a bad catalytic converter. You can install new bearings and tranny will still make the noise. I have rebuilt several of these and they make noise before and after rebuild. According to New Venture and Chrysler (my employer, lead tech) it is by design. RUN IT!!!!!!!!!

That seems to be the consensus so I will just run it.
