Rough gear change on ultramatic
#1

Hi everyone. I have finally got my 56 Clipper on the road! It runs sweet for an old donk that hasn't ran for 15 years (i'm shocked how well). But the ultramatic changes pretty rough with a noticable clunk. I have put some lucas transmission slip in it but hasn't got better. Would adjusting the bands help? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

P.s. When i opened the pan there was a hairline crack in the valve body (the valve body visible when you open the pan. Lower?)

The older Jeeps used the same 2" brake shoe. Thats what I used. Exactly the same

Just a quick question to the brains trust. There is a light green wire on my 56 Clipper that goes from the resistor on the firewall to the inside small contact on my starter motor. Doesn't seem to make a difference if its connected or not. Any idea what its for? Thanks, Phil

Thanks everyone for your advice. It turned out to be a striped thread that bolts the bellhousing to the box. Used a slightly longer bolt and siliconed it too. I'm finally leak free!

Just to confirm, I replaced all vacuum hoses to the booster and reservoir. The hose goes to a brass connection at the bottom of the carb on a (I think) 5/16 fitting. Is this correct? Not a huge amount of vacuum, thanks again, Phil

Thanks everyone. From your info I assume there is a leak somewhere. I did do it myself and the spring is in good condition. I replaced all poppet seals but will pull it down again and inspect. As for the pedal not returning, I’m nearly certain I used too much assembly grease and that’s making it stick. Thanks for the info, Phil

Treadlevac booster working?

Can someone help me with a few problems i'm having? Firstly when I rebuilt my booster it came with booster assembely grease. I assumed that it was to coat the leather seal in the booster but the viscosity of it is stopping my pedal from returning. Have I made a mistake or just put too much on? Also, how is an effective way of knowing my booster is working or not? Thanks again
