i spoke to jurgen @ 4HP24A transmission
thurs morning and got that the LUCAS TRANSMISSION FIX i put in my 84 733i the second day i had it - could very well have expanded the rubber in the transmission and caused it to disintigrate while superheated(thats my noob interperetation).
the forward clutches were probably already on their way out when i bought it- but it was 80%functional and deteriorated to no forward gears immediately after LUCAS TRANS FIX - ive had GREAT EXPERIENCE with LUCAS TX FIX on other vehicles and dont want to imply its a bad product. BUT SOMETHING TO BE AWARE ABOUT!!!!?????
HERE is info i got from jurgen at 4HP24A transmission
about possible rebuild!!!
rebuild and friction kits and drum overhaul for a 1984 BMW 733i - ZF4H22 transmission non electric, numbered 24001468383 or 1043000178.
this is the procedure diagrams I have that I mentioned to Jurgen. Two ZF 4HP22 repairs (per Winfred)
.. having slid my head and arm under the chassis to drain ATF is the only additional experience I have with this transmission. I have access to 24" floor stands and a 2.5 ton floor jack and was wondering if this 2 feet will get this trans out from under car???
I got in conversation with jurgen that overhaul kit would be @ $74 and the friction kit for all clutches forward, reverse and overdrive would be $137 - my m30 has I believe a throttle sensor that utilizes a pedal overdrive connected to auto trans and that there are overdrive clutches associated with forward gears.
and that all forward gears are in ONE clutch pack. and that the drums can be sent in for overhaul at @ $80 per drum (not sure how many drums are in trans yet)
any feedback on the above products and more diagrams or encouragement for me to undertake this would be greatly appreciated.
im hoping that i can possibly complete this overhaul in the $400 range.
while local trans shop charge over $2500.
please tell me if im totally missing something here. (this is my FOURTH day studying transmission overhauls-NO OTHER EXPERIENCE -PERIOD)
