Anyhow it now starts and runs in the asstek with the buick ECM, with the key...lol.

Time to do the 3500 swap..  from what I hear it's pretty simple in a car which came with a late 3400 and you get 25 horsepower for free.

After an arduous search I finally found the twelve rocker arms and pushrods..  that set me back an extra $497!!

After fussing and working and solving a thousand little puzzles and using every torque wrench I own, I finally got it together and..


I've so missed my car!!

I couldn't remember how one of the firewall (right side of engine) spark plug wire holders bolts down, so it's just sort of dangling, which I know is incorrect..  but I haven't yet found the right diagram for it.  Meanwhile however, it sounds fan frickin' tastic and as soon as I get the muffler for it tomorrow, I'll be able to verify that it no longer does the power fade thing at 40 percent of calculated load..  Hey, I know for damn sure there aren't any vacuum leaks or a bad EGR valve now!!

I don't have much time or room for this vehicle because the shop space I have is full of a torn apart truck. I'm really trying to get this all done in one shot or I'd inspect further.

If it's any constellation I had a transmission shop drain the transfer case and they said there wasn't anything in the fluid. When I replaced the transfer case fluid the grinding stopped for awhile after that but then started up again.

Thanks for the solenoid idea, and the Lucas suggestion. I think I'm going to try those first for sure. I really appreciate the help!

Have you dropped the pan to see if its full of dust/particles/metal shavings?  If it's intermittent, maybe there is a solenoid at fault.  Also that Lucas transmission treatment is a miracle worker sometimes.

I can't get an image atm... But judging how old this post is, it doesn't really matter. It should go in a crater in the rear left corner behind the e-brake. You can find the same placement in the shotgun seat as well. I just recently put LEDs in mine, which is pretty epic 😂😂

Going into third gear steadily- grinding noise
Going into third gear stepping on it- tranny slip, enough to give a little jolt forward / no clunking noise
I've diagnosed failing transmission and transfer case, I'd like to know opinions on these symptoms.

I'm attempting to replace both these parts myself.

Is there any specialty tools I'm going to need? Not talking about regular tools, but something everyone doesn't just have on hand. (I'm rebuilding a Cummins truck to give a tool availablity idea)

I don't have a lift, so does anyone know how much space I'm going to need under the car to successfully remove and replace?

I'm looking to keep replacement parts as low cost as possible so I'm looking at salvaged trannys and transfer cases, has anyone had horror story endings with these kinds of replacements?

What do you think I should do? I just took it on a 300-400 mile round trip with no real issues but the above symptoms listed- and the symptoms aren't consistent just every once in awhile more so at the beginning of the drive then the end. Is it worth the effort?
If there are other posts on this forum that are a similar question I'd appreciate the information/direction.

Thanks in advance! Grin

Just wondering if you ever rebuilt your Versatrak and how it went?

When I first got my Tek, it made the groaning noise around corners so I changed its expensive fluid.  Some fibers came out, but the fluid wasn't burnt.  A few years later it groaned again, so I changed the fluid, but no fibers came out that time.  Soon after, the AWD disable light came on and it's never groaned again, nor has it engaged the AWD :-(

When I took it in for something else, the dealer inspected the whole car and said the AWD wasn't working because of corrosion on the connector.  I looked at it myself and found none, but that's as far as I got because it seldom snows here.

After I get done with this whole engine situation, I'll look into the AWD and also ABS issues..

Hey, finally got it to work with mine. I needed the v2 harness cable to actually get power. The security issue could be a simple fix tho, I had the security go off on mine too and taking out the positive NOT the negative battery terminal for a few min resets the security settings. Does that help u?
