      OK, this is cool.

      I also have to be honest and I didn't see any part of any video, so, I'll trust in you there are no naked women running around or such items....a foul contained with in.
      (LOL Joking joking...)

      Nice find!

            I watched these the other day and not even an hour ago had two 727's apart. A shorttail and longtail. Reassembled the short tail with the long tail shaft installed in it. Was done in two hours including dissasembly, reassembly, clean up. Super easy

            That accent is painful to listen to. Some missinformation as well but for a noob there may be some good tips.

            Did my first 727 at 19. Took 5 hours from cleaning everything, working the valve body for the TransGo TF2, and pan on, ready to install. I used a Factory Service Manual. No internet then.

            It was Very Difficult to get the rollers in , got there in the end , Drum turns Clockwise only,

            Peter at Southwest Auto's (who made the video) should be able to sort out those teflon seals you were after.

            You know, it may not be his accent, but just your comprehension skills.. At least he bothered to take the time to make the video. What great deed have you done and posted for others to learn from..?

              Surely couldn't be as bad as the kiwi accent? That takes the cake for horrible-ness. BTW, spellings are: "awful" "Grateful"

              I watched one of the videos; the direct drum assembly. There are errors. NEVER machine the inside of the drum if it's scored from ring wear. It will be too big and the rings won't seat with enough pressure to seal on a hot SoCal day stuck in traffic on the 91; you'll fall out of high gear. This five plate setup is fine for 600 hp, but seven plate assemblies are available for under a hundred dollars.

              How do you explain the operation of Teflon sealing rings then?
              They have almost no tension at all and yet they work great.
              I would say it is safe to machine the drum if it's not severe.
              The video did not say how much stock was removed.
              Probably a few thou would be fine. IMHO

              No. If you remember I was saying I am in the middle of a rebuild and ran into what I thought was a sealing ring issue.( using Teflon)
              and I saw this post.

              Maybe if you didn't put worn out hard parts back into your transmission then you wouldn't be having sealing ring issues. And advising other people to put worn out drums back into their transmission is downright irresponsible.

              What in Jesus name are you talking about.
              Read the sealing ring thread I started before you answer.
              The machining in the video is to fix the wear.
              I never advised him to do anything. He's advising us.
              I only asked you a question about how Teflon rings seal because unlike metal rings, they have no radial tension.
