Bella spent most of the winter on the hoist! got her drivetrain in and buttoned up late fall last year! My son tested her locally on the street to see how everything worked and being satisfied she was going to stay together drove her to work 25miles ea. way last fall and was pretty happy with the results of the makeover, 500ci stroker zf s6-40 trans [6speed manual from corvette]. on the way home he noticed a bit of whine from trans so he put her back on the hoist when he got home., she had a bit of leak from trans. input shaft,checked level and it was only down an ounce which is a lot for the amount of time it had been tested but not enough to cause any noise. [being a used trans. that he got a deal on thought maybe that's why it was replaced [it seems dealers didn't work on these they just replace them] Over the winter when cold out we tried to fire her a few times and she was unwilling to light,oh well not a big deal just pushed her over to the other bay where she slept for the winter with new trans. seal installed! Last Friday was the warmest we'd had all winter +10c so he texted me and said he was going to try and wake her up. text "Holy shit" my reply"she started?" text " she went out and put black marks all up and down the street" reply "LMFAO" To make a long winded isolation post even longer He told me the trans. is still making noise from input side so out it has to come again and try to figure out what the issue is, trans,trans alignment,throwout bearing or something else with the strange combination of mopar to zf install! these trans. had a special clutch on them and I'm wondering if it was done to absorb some noise and what he's hearing normal in this application with the 11" clutch! although he said he didn't hear the noise when first driven, custom cars are sometimes a pain, but I think that's the part that gives so much satisfaction when all the quirks are eliminated! if anyone one has input on this, have at it! I don't expect much because I don't think this combo has ever been done before when I talked to quicktime they said they could make a bellhousing $$$+ but it had never been done before, my son made his own and I guess that's the first place we'll start with measurement confirmation being it really sounds like an input issue! the 2 pics. are from late last summer!
