As the snow will be flying before too much longer up here in Canada I thought I'd provide a quick update to the 48RE build so far-

Nearly 30,000 km or 18,600 miles later: (This not might seem like a big deal but it's been rebuilt 10 times before by 4 different shops and I was getting 100 kilometers out of some of those!)

Several 1/4 mile passes with Drag Radials.
No band adjustments
No filter or fluid changes
Solid converter lockup (decent gas mileage)

Fluid is pink and the tranny shifts like the day it left the shop.

No drag radial runs but I have almost exactly 100,000 miles on my rebuild, after 3 previous rebuilds, and not a drop of fluid added or bands adjusted. Still slams gears and breaks the tires loose in second so all is well.

Good to hear guys.

Who did both of your re-builds?

When I started the transmission adventure, I thought it would be straight forward but as mentioned, I went through several catastrophic failures before finding someone that knew what they were doing.

It's been quite the nightmare.

Commercial Powertrain in Balzac Alberta does a lot of 48RE diesels for trucks that make a lot more power than mine so he used the same build for mine.

It works well.

It's a treat when you find someone who can get these transmissions to work properly and live.

Originally, I thought that would be easy but it wasn't and I went through a few shops and several "repairs" until I found someone that knew how.

Glad to hear yours is working well and lasting as it should.

My brother owns a bunch of AAMCO stores , he has a builder that did a stellar job with mine. You would be looking at $2200 to $2400 with all new hard parts. Call Ian or Lewis Lakeland AAMCO FL for a quote.

Re; transmission fluid, are you using Amsoil Synthetic ATF? If not, what type?

Cheers!

Probably not what you were expecting, but I'm using Dexron VI.
