Dave built mine. The stocker was slipping so bad, I literally picked up 10# boost with the new trans. His shop crew is top notch as well.

I've heard the same thing site after site...

I think when Mom's tranny gives up in here 1/2 ton Dave will get it to work on too...

I hear a lot of good stories/customer service, etc for Dave as well. I sent him an email about looking at purchasing a Single Disc from him..but Goerend has not responded yet. Maybe I should try giving him a call? (dang long distance!)

How does your tranny shift and your truck accelerate now?

Goerend makes Triple Disc for 47 and 48 re's and a Single Disk for the 727 1st Gen...If you want it for the truck in your sig..Did you send it to the NEW e-mail??? its [email protected]

Yea Dave is a SUPER nice guy...he called me at like 6pm one nite as I was walking into night class and I said I couldnt talk b/c I had class and he said well when do you get out and I was like 8:45 or so....well at 9 sharp my phone rang and it was Dave Goerend and he talked to me for everybit of a hour or two and most of it was just shooting the breeze...

Same thing. He's got Dodge Diesel tranys down to a simple science.

I think he should work on your mother's son's 3/4 ton and swap a automatic in it.

I think your t/c is fine Jordan. The engine RPMs are most likely too low. You need to lock out O/D til you hit 50mph. If my revs are to slow, mine will shake as well (with the lock up clutch engaged in O/D). If you have 3.55 gears, it will be worse. Need to have a 3 position switch for the lock up clutch, to force unlock. That will take care of the shaking. Borderline lugging the engine as you are right now.

Yeah, I keep mine out of O/D until 55mph.
Glad to hear he was a big help. If I do this again, I'm going with his parts.

How was the build? I'm going to be starting mine pretty soon and just gathering as much info as I can.
