will a stock pump hold 600hp? with mods
X100 !If the flexplate is true, the converter hub runs straight and the case to block dowel alignment is good , there is NO need to alter the crescent of a powerglide pump with a grinder. If the gear is worn out where is contacts the converter hub and its running into the crescent , don't grind away the crescent , get a new set of pump gears.
For those who consider this a performance "mod" , what advantage does this mod have?
what minor mods are these you do?? getting ready to put glide back together so any help on pump mods is appreciatedX100 !
I too would like to know this advantage ?
All the pumps that I recieve in with cresent "mods" usally hit the circular pile because there was/is a problem.
A properly looked after stock pump with minor mods will live under very stout power & abuse.
Hutch - Whats wrong with using a grinder on a pump
By the way I'm still in the zone ................. lol
Thats a pretty critical point in the pump , changing the clearance at that point will alter the pumps performance at some rpm range for sure but im betting it won't be an increase. The changes I see made to the crescent are removal of material from the suction side , not really a good area to increase clearance on.So Hutch, the lead in will not let it pump more fluid, or create less turbulence at the point where the oil enters gears.
YASU CHRISTOS.Fortunately I am mentally ill and use new gears in every transmission I build.The slightest contact drives me insane so I just dont use old ones.Modding the crescent is an accepted practice when THERE IS NOISE FROM RUBBING.Not when trying to improve a pumps output.I should have worded my original post differently.I just dont do it.
*Always make sure the converter feed & return passages are drilled to 1/4"what minor mods are these you do?? getting ready to put glide back together so any help on pump mods is appreciated
