SeaspanKing, so you have this 32RH as well?

Ok so today I got underneath the jeep this afternoon. #1 I pulled the inspection plate off and it was being hit by the fly wheel, a little bit of work with a body hammer and it was fixed.

#2 I dealt with the tranny, first I looked at the linkages. The linkages turned out to be ok so I turned my attention to the front band. I backed the band off one turn, then two and lasty three turns still no first gear. I finger tightened the adjusting screw and then gave it two more turns with a ratchet, backing off 1/2 turn. I started up and put it in first gave it some throttle, and it worked. A short road test and all gears work.

Yea

Yes!

I think there was a torque setting for the adjuster nut IIRC. It was in that scrib doc on google. Did you see it?

I just got mine back together and overfilled it like a dummy. So after losing 2quarts of ATF on the freeway and smoking out half of Washington with burnt fluid to exhaust smoke, I think I am also good.

72 inch pounds yep I saw it. That's how I got into this mess several months ago. I went to adjust my front band, I saw the 72 and just assumed foot pounds. 72 inch pounds equals 6 foot pounds. Not good when your torque wrench is set for 72 foot pounds, after a loud bang I new I was learning how to rebuild a transmission. Turns out the clutches and steels needed to be replaced anyways. It did feel good when the jeep was working again.

Anyways congrats again on getting your problem solved.

as I remember some of the rebuild kits send a spring that is too long for some of the transmissions (no idea why) and it can cause this issue.

Yeah, I've done that before with a valve cover many many years ago, broke the stud of into the head. They should really just put it all into foot pounds. Now when I run into the inch lbs ratings I highlight them so I take note. Big difference between 150 foot lbs (should have read INCH) and 12.5 foot lbs.

Did you put a shift kit in when you did your rebuild?

mine is also running well now after the adjustments. sometimes it forgets when it should be in first gear so i just manually put it in first, its shifts 2nd and 3rd like butter though. Went out mudding for 4 hours the other day an hour from my house and it drove like a top.

Going to mudfest with it this weekend.

Me? No I did not. Mines not rebuilt, just one I found in a local yard with 70k on it. It was the best I could do at the time. I'm probably going to go to the ax-15 when this trans dies.
