Do I need to drop the entire transmission; can I just loosen and slide back: can I use old flex plate and flip it: and one more please, easiest way to turn manually turn engine. Installed new starter and it just grinds. Didn't have shims on but when I put them on it still grinds. Thank you again for your kindness. Heck, I'm allover the place - one hot mess.
First off i am not a troll or whatever you choose to call me.Are you a troll? Flex plate, then 5 speed manual, then 700r4, then flip the flex plate? Flywheel?/ I tend to say figure out what the heck you have then report back, cus this don't add up.
Pictures can help determine things here in the forumFirst off i am not a troll or whatever you choose to call me.
I have provided all the information that the VIN has afforded me. If you took the time to read my posts you would understand that i am in deair straights with the truck.
I pulled the flex plate off and tied to install a new plate. The new plate holes did not line up . I asked a friend to take a look and she told me that my transmissions was not the original transmission, and that it was a 700r4 4-speed auto .Npw she said just take it in and get "gasoline" flex plat that matches the older fp and she marked with an x on the plate where i nee the hole.
This entire starter swap has turned out to be a big fiasco. I just need to get my truck back and running. "Flipping the plate" I saw somewhere on this forum. Please, I'm trying best toto assist everyone here so that they can assist me, and hopeful others who have the same problem.
Im just a simple man, looking for some guidance and directions, thats all.
Oh thank you... been offline for a bit with this trucklike DieselPro said, the flex plate is a special one for the 6.5 . if someone has changed the trans from a NV4500 to a 700R4, there is a possibility things might be different. normally the 6.5 trucks came with ether the NV4500 or a 4L80E trans from what I have encountered. on my truck the previous owner didn't use the rear starter bracket which caused my block to break on the outer bolt hole for the starter and caused the flexplate to be damaged. in my search of how to repair this problem without having to replace the engine i did find out that the 6.5 trans bolt pattern is the same as any small block chevy meaning that just about any older GM trans will bolt right up. But the flexplate is unique, it should be a 139 tooth 14.5" diameter flexplate. I got very lucky with a welding job and a re-threading kit along with several prayers, it's still running after 6 months, but i don't expect it to last for ever. as OkDually said about the rear starter bracket, that tiny piece of metal is very important!
Thank you for your help.Sorry, just a little confused . Far as I know all 6.5l Diesels require the same size flex plate specifically made for the 6.5. You can not use any other. The tooth count is special and the counter weight is special. 139 teeth
If the starter makes noise replace it. DO NOT SHIM.
Thank you again for you assistance.Could you post up a pic of the trans pan so we can ID the trans? If it is a 700R4 it wont hold up long behind a 6.5 turbo unless built strong. A stock 700R4 cant take the toque a 6.5 turbo puts out. Also there is no way to properly control a 700R4 with the 6.5 electronics.
700R4 must have throttle valve cable operated by throttle linkage. Which a 6.5 does not have. To control line pressure and also to set shift points.. With out a properly adjusted TV cable installed. Line pressures will be too low allowing the trans to slip. Which will burn out out the clutches. Also there is no way to control 700R4 Torque convertor lock up with 6.5 electronic control. A manual switch would have to be installed.
The only auto transmission 6.5s came with is the 4l80e. It is the only transmission the the computer will operate.
What are the chance that since it appear to be a 4L60E, and considering the sfifting problems, tht the exsisting computer, is actually for the 4L80E?"The only auto transmission 6.5s came with is the 4l80e. It is the only transmission the the computer will operate"
