Separate names with a comma.
Agreed.Apparently there was an electrically operated borg warner od available as well can't find much info at all.
Really? What,no computer? Just switches? What about the valve body? How is shifting controlled?
Find a 2 wheel drive pre 96 Dakota with the v6 or v8.
Agreed.Only problem is the 2wd part.Not happening here. In Alberta yup,probably lots.
How far is Alberta? By the way why not use a 42 instead of a 46?
The number designation is it's torque handling capacity. So a 42 is weaker than a 46.Really probably makes literally no difference.Trans will get built to handle shit anyways.I'll probably consider them all.Important part is no electronic trans need apply.
What are you wanting to put it in?
1970 Dodge Dart with a fibreglass front end.400 stroked to 451 or so.Dana 60.Finished engine plans were initially stage VI max wedge heads.Deeming them impractice,really want this car to be driveable.Thinking along other lines now.
Care to elaborate on this at all? I’ve looked (a few years ago) for a stand-alone 46RE controller and came up empty. Few guys on the Dakota sites were trying to figure it out but no one I could find had one running. Any links or info?
I actually just stumbled on it the other day. I swore the Compushift worked on the RE transmissions but they are for the RH. Dodge Transmission | E-TransControl I spoke to US Shift several months ago when wiring a Quick 2 for a 4R70W about supporting the RE/RH transmissions and they didn't seem to think there was a market for it.
One that I am aware of. Dodge Transmission | E-TransControl
Posted at a similar time.
That's the only one I know of. I really tried with the owner of US Shift. Super nice guy and they make a nice product, he just didn't think it would be as popular as I did.
Alberta is at least an 8 hour drive one way.Better off having it shipped.
Oooof! $700. Probably more practible looking for an 46RH or a 518.
Do you have a small block to big block adapter plate?
Not yet! Kinda need the trans first lol. Might actually be easier and cheaper sourcing a trans out of Washington state.Spokane is only 2.5 hours away,plus much bigger market.
Care to explain how this works? I'm baffled.The RE NEEDS a computer to shift...
He's using a manual shift valve body.
Ok.Then the o/d needs a steady voltage supplied by a switch?Lock up same idea?So there IS a simple way to make an Re work?
I see two ways that you could do it. 1 is to just have the power going through a switch on your dash or console or wherever going to the overdrive pin and another wire and switch going to the lockup pin on the side of the transmission. That way you can physically Lock it or overdrive it when you want to. 2 Is to use pressure switches to control when it shifts into over and lu. With a switch on the console or dash to shut them off. You would want to make sure it only works in 3rd gear either way.
I would love for the actual poster using this to give some details.What say you Wilma?
So this would mean the biggest problem I now have is finding a 2WD output shaft and housing...Hmmm! If I can get this trans dirt cheap why not try!
I guess that means you don't need any input for me so I'm out of here.
