Working on a tire repair...

Stainless steel jewelry cable stitches. First time I have ever tried this. Trying to patch before would just push the patch through the hole. I used a needle to pull the cable so hopefully I didn't cut anymore of the belting so the stitches don't tear out. We'll see what happens.

Was that cut from running over cars or on rocks?

Had to quit wheeling early at KOH because the transmission started acting up. Was trying to be optimistic because it would still move in all the gears, it just needed some RPM to do so. Finally had some time to check into it a little further. Pulled the drain plug and thought, well that's not great but not terrible.
Then I dropped the pan. It's terrible. Guess transmission is coming out. Found some small pieces of bearing, shit ton of aluminum pieces, and a tiny bit of brass. No friction material though. I'm guessing the direct thrust bearing came apart for some reason and started chewing up the case as it did. Not sure where else the aluminum could be coming from. Hopefully it's not a total shit show. I do have a spare case, so that's good.

Had some time this last weekend and some help and finally got the transmission out of the truck and apart. My brother offered to give me a hand and in less than four hours had the tires off, cab off, and transmission out and apart. Forward planetary thrust bearing came apart and made it's way into the gears. Fortunately I had another transmission to steal the hard parts out of. I do need to order a thrust washer kit and I'll be sending the torque back to Broader Performance for cleaning. So a thorough cleaning and assembly is really all I need. Durring assembly I'll verify the oil passages are clear and I performed the recommended mods properly and I didn't miss or mess anything up. Pretty sure the root cause is overheating.

Lot of work for four hours. Bet it takes a lot longer to go together. They say heat is the number one killer. What kind of cooler did you have on the tranny?

The cooler I had was not big enough, so I added a second but I think maybe it was too late. They are plate and fin coolers and last couple trips out trans temps were good. Probably take about 4 hours to put it back together after the trans is assembled.

It was a roller thrust that came apart. A fuller roller upgrade is available but requires a bunch of the drums and planetaries to be replaced. Not sure in my application it's worth the money.

I know this is going back a spell, but if that tire repair doesn't work, give this stuff a try.
If you follow the directions, it's amazing what it'll do.
I got some and fixed the sidewall, and tread area on one of my tires and it's held up great.
Typically I don't run more than 6.5 psi in my tires while wheeling either.
Seems like the trick is to vee out way more than you think and clean the area to give it something to bond to.
