hey! what a coincidence....
i've seen these pics BUT i was looking for a website....
maybe you can help me find out if there are any "build" pics of these fine 1:1 rigs! they're beautiful man.....!!!

Ya they are nice trucks. I don't know much else about them, honestly never seen them before I took those pics. I wish I could find some build pics and maybe even specs on them. The only place I had posted those pics prior to this were on my 1:1 truck forum where I did coverage of the carlisle ATN's. Coulda been someone else used them elsewhere.

I have however seen the black on CMT's Trick My Truck. The one eposode the Chrome Shop Mafia guys rolled in on the black one. I don't know if they built it or had anything to do with it.

He likes to switch the "do" around to try and confuse his victims. Sometimes it's nappy, other times it's not. :lol: :lol: :lol:

remember how i said "i think i've figured out the trouble with 3rd"?....

well, a late night run in a carpark proved otherwise!! :shock: 3rd gear still sounds as though its "grinding down gears".....

first and second work like a charm but 3rd is driving me up the wall!!! :evil:

i tore it apart AGAIN (ahem, removed the case), expecting to see shrapnel everywhere but nope! :D thank goodness for that...

anywez, the case-less gear box is sitting right in front of me at my office even as i type this......everything looks ok but what could be the problem???!!!

anyone have this sorta problem with their 3 speed????.....

i'm kinda reluctant to tear it down completely....yes "lazy" :roll:

When you get a grinding noise trying to engage 3rd, it's not actually the gears that are doing it. It's the sliders with the molded on 'dogs' that are making the noise. The silders (we'll call them that for now) are moved by the shift forks to engage a different gear and the dogs on the sliders slip into the slots on the gear's face.

If you are having a grinding problem, I'm almost 100% positive that one of your gears is not seated properly onto it'd supporting bearing. I bought a complete, pre-built Tamiya semi 3 speed and had the same problem you do. I was able to see the shift fork and slider not able to engage a gear.....I think 2nd.....because the gear face was not flush with the bearing. This was preventing the dogs of the slider from engaging that gear completely because the gear was not in the proper location for the dogs to slide into it. I ended up pulling the gear back onto the bearing and it popped when going it. I think the bearing wasn't pushed in straight to the gear and so it was not seated properly. Spin your tranny with the covers off and watch the shift forks carefully while you try to engage each gear. If you notice the shift fork deflecting on the shift rail and you can engage a gear, this is your problem. Basically look for any gear that is not flush with it's support bearings.

Hope this helps. It's worth a shot. My tranny works great and I was able to get the gear into place without a tear down. You could have a different problem too, but I would check the gears and bearings first.

hey there dude!
thanks for the tip.....




but after tearing down and building up the tranny twice!!! :shock: ....i realised that after all that work and sweat.....it had nothing to do with the gears at all....nothing "IN" the gearcase itself for that matter!!

i'm almost embarrased to say this but...it was a case of the "rotating" ball joint on the shifter rod! you know, the one where the shift servo's conected to the tranny?....yeah that ball joint!!! it seems that sometimes when the servo shifts the shifter rod, it rotates away...ever so slightly...thus shortening the throw of the servo! %##^*&^(^%@$#@ and not allowing the "dogs" to fully seat into the gear...... :roll: :roll:

i'm a gonna mill out a collar (to replace the stocker) that places the ball joint in the same "plane" as the shifter rod as soon as i get a chance...so that the throw will not be affected....in the meantime, i've got some o-rings between the ball and cup to take up the slop thus preventing "rotation"...

well, i'm just glad that THAT'S sorted! sheesh!!!

thanks anywez Nathan..... :cry: i didnt think anyone cared!!! :cry: :lol: :lol: :lol:
