I rebuilt transmission on 450g john deere dozer

Customer Question

I rebuilt transmission on 450g john deere dozer TO450G844557. Replaced all clutch plates,discs,piston seals,seal rings,piston and pressure plates,and all snap rings. It does not have any of the reverse gears. All the forward gears work fine. I tore the forward and reverse clutch pack down again and found nothing wrong. I am working on putting pressure gauge on valve to check reverse pressure. Could this be in the valve or I missed something in transmission .

Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. If you have no pressure dropping off in reverse indicating internal leakage in a shaft seal or clutch pack then I would first check for a control valve problem. It is possible you have a problem in the valve with damage or a spool sticking. Was there a lot of debris in the system from the initial failure? If so it likely also got into the control valve body. Let me know

I took control valve apart and cleaned and checked all. Was pretty clean and everything looked good. Waiting on gaskets and orings to come in. Checked manifold and was ok. Put air pressure on all clutches and all pulled in. What else should I check before installing valve and transmission in dozer.
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago
Thanks for the update. If there were no signs of leakage in the clutches or shaft sealing rings, lets see if the cleaning in resealing the valve body corrects this problem. Let me know

Checked transmission clutches again,put valve on after cleaning,still have no reverse,holding 250 pressure on reverse and 1st gear at same time. Forward holds 250 pressure also and all gears work fine and will push great in low gears. Checked clutches with air and all pulled in with 80psi.?????

Could I have problem in reverse hub. I did also press shaft out of hub during overhaul. Is it possible to turn hub wrong way ? I did mark hubs and I think I have them right but I not positive?? Will back up but will stall when blade down or backing up hill?????
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago
This is a tough one sight unseen. And I have rebuilt transmissions when I was at Nortrax but havent ran into this one right after rebuild.... Only initial failure. It sounds like you might be going back into this one. Let me opt out in case someone else might have another suggestion other than taking it back apart with a fine toothed comb.
