Checking and adjusting PG band
« on: January 08, 2015, 04:22:12 AM »
Dan, what is the best method to check and adjust the PG band on a freshly rebuilt glide?  I've heard some people say "use a torque" value and some people say "4 turns method"?  and how often should it be checked?

thanks,
john

I think you will find that most of the value body manufacturers use the same. I use a torque wrench and tighten to 72 inch pounds then back off 3 and half turns. Be sure to rotate the output shaft a couple of turns with the band loose to insure its square on the drum before setting it. I do this as the last step so the trans can be sitting on the pan. If its a new band I would check it after 10 to 15 passes. After that if you worry about those things every 50 or so, but in reality most guy go all season and never check it.    Hope this helps, Dan
