My MV trans sh1t a few times....once it had a failed pump and it also did what yours did felony....lost all gears for no apparent reason....

Turns out it popped a circlip off input shaft and the shaft slipped out....probably what happened with yours...he put a tack weld on the circlip and never had the issue again.

He must get a lot of reworks by the sounds of it! Atleast he doesnt try and blame someone else and just fixes it.

If I had my time again, built 3spd with t/brake from SA Race - Which is probably a bit of overkill for 180rwkw but atleast for when and if I went crazy with mods the trans would be there willing to cop all punishment.

Unlucky tom

They are the **** for 4L60e's lol got a couple in the 9's with the same spec box as me so they gotta be doing something right

Had a chat with the convertor supplier from the states and put him onto Mike at MV's hopefully they can sort the cost out together. Box has to be torn down as metal is everywhere from the convertor. Might get the convertor set up for a good shot of gas while im at it.

Mike said it one of the best convertors hes ever seen quality wise, he said hes going to make it better and more efficient aswell.

darren

at least u have some power to blame for it, ive got none

This is what Chris at Circle D has thought has happened, which was confirmed by Mike.
