    Did you have a good amount of tare torque on the new Mag-Hytech hardware ?

    Let us know how much movement you get on the torque check after a few heat cycles
    Did you use the new gasket that came with the pan or just RTV sealant ?

    I'll be honest, it isn't something I thought to check. Can that only be done with the dial type indicators?

    I'll be rechecking them today so will keep you posted. There are two bolts that I can't access with a torque wrench so I'll try to get to those when I replace the rusted exhaust clamp.

    And for the gasket I just used the one with the Mag hytec pan, didn't use any RTV at all. With how tight it was getting in there it would've been a huge mess anyway.

    A dial is the best to measure tare , but this can be done with a click style that has a small incremental graduations .
    I have a small in lb tq. wrench that I used. , I was surprised at the amount of tare I had. , If I remember correctly I believe it was around 30inlbs ? Been a while so can't remember exactly .
    I did post it up here somewhere ?
    I did.get quite a bit of movement on my tq check though

    Good info sir!


    Just so everyone understands that is with RLK’s torque wrench and driver setup...Yours could be much different.

    Well, to add closure to my situation, we decided we were done dealing with the transmission issues. They put it together one last time (the 4th time) and went in for an upgrade.[​IMG]

    That looks REALLY nice.... but im partial to white with black trim

    Good luck with the new truck sir. Obviously an 8speed. You get an extended warranty? Or are you going to plan for the aftermarket trans pan and some redline D6...?

    It may be wise to start researching now and deciding what your service intervals are going to be for this new transmission.

    The more the merrier IMO. always having Clean fluid it THE BEST thing you can do for a trans. And Redline D6 is a fantastic fluid.

    Good luck sir.

    I did not opt for an extended warranty. I wasn't expecting to trade in at all, let alone this soon so I haven't done much research beyond what I already know. So I have some reading to do. I love the 8 speed. I'll miss the center shifter, that is the only thing I'll miss about that truck.
