this is my truck i just put a new built tranny in. done by myself and probably wrong. the problem shift is at the 6/7 second mark. also at the very last shift i let off so you cant hear it as strong but its there.
UPDATE: when i pulled the trans the gapping between the c2s and c3 was wrong and wasnt dissengaging! theres a plastic spacer thing in there was totally shot. holding up nicely now. Dyno'de truck 10-1-11 518.8HP on eddy Dyno.
CRANKWALKED? 7-bolt teardown 1080HD
Now this is a story all about how
My bearings got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
And tell you how I used to mix and burn my gas and my air.
In RVA suburbs born and raised
On the dragstrip is where I spent most of my days
Chillin out, maxin, relaxing all cool,
'n all shooting some BS outside with my tools
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started running races in my neighborhood
I heard one little knock and my rods got scared
And said "You put it in the garage until you figure out where..."
I Begged and pleaded that it not be that way,
But it didn't want to start and run another day.
I kissed it goodbye, because the motor punched its ticket
I got out my camera, said "I might as well kick it."
Crankwalk yo this is bad
Drinking metal shavings from an oil pan.
Is this what the rumor of crankwalk is like?
Hmm this won't be alright
But wait I heard knocking, grinding and all that
Is this the type of failure that should happen to this cool cat?
I don't think so, I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for this video I share.
Well I pulled all the bolts and when I came out
There were chunks in my fluids in the pan and they drained out
I aint all depressed cause I seen this before.
I got my books and my wrench and we'll do it once more.
I sprang into action like lightning disassembled
I whistled while I worked and my hands never trembled
If anything you could say that this bling is rare,
and when I saw what broke I stained my underwear.
I turned off the air compressor 'bout 7 or 8
And I yelled to crankcase "Yo holmes, smell ya later"
I looked at my internals they were finally there
To sit on my workbench and stink up the air.

Here's the 48,000 mile-old 7-bolt I blew up summer 2011 after over 150 drag
passes, a half dozen Dyno sessions, 4 transmissions,
3 clutches and 10 years of hard all-weather use.
Duramax Loaded Going Up Steep Incline
Who would have thought that these hay bales could be so heavy. My dad
insists that his duramax out performs my old 24V 5.9 cummins when it comes
to pulling power.
Joshies Towing Service
Been working on my grandparents property, part of the estate, and this
trailer just had to go! So I used my 2002 Duramax to pull it out, and I am
willing to say even though i massivley overloaded the truck with the 50
foot trailer, i am damn impressed!

Burnout contest at the 4wheel Jamboree 2012 in Lima, Ohio on May 20th.
This truck blows it's turbo, and
apparently caught on fire mid way through his run. (even though I never saw
any flames) Fortunately for him, he won 1st place in the end.
2003 Powerstroke pulling out 2010 Duramax
2003 Powerstroke Diesel pulling a 2010 Duramax Diesel out of the
water/mudd, dont ask why he drove out there but we drove up on him while
heading out to a fishing hole, guess the dealer told him it would float
when he bought it.....
2011 Denali HD Duramax 6.6 Turbo DEF Tank Issues!
2011 Denali HD DRW 4x4 with the 6.6 turbo Duramax. The DEF Tank is full, yet the DIC
says that I need to refill the tank and that I am limited to 55mph. After
a while it will go down to 5mph. I went to the GMC Dealership and they
have not heard of "any issues with the DEF Tank" Ive tried letting the
truck run for 1 hour...and that still did not fix the issue. I also drove
it 30 miles down the freeway. The truck has 4,000 miles on it. Needless
to say, I am NOT a happy owner and maybe I should get a King Ranch or Dodge
DRW. I am not the only duramax owner having the issue. Brand new truck
and I dont know even know how many miles I have left until it puts me at a
crawl. Thanks GM! Quality Product indeed
