Iíve got a little inspecting to do, the drain line did look dry; this explains it too.
____________________________________
Scott,

The unit you sent in for inspection has been looked at and it will need to have a minor repair (bearings and seals), cost of the rebuild is $396.99 + return shipping.
The oil in the unit is fairly dirty and looks like you might have a drain issue, make sure your drain line
Is as straight to the top of the oil pan as possible. no kinks, bends or loops
Make sure the line is a no smaller than ĹĒ diameterĒ

You came out a lot better than I did. Mine is closer to $1,400.

Good lord. How much more was it to just get a V3?

Was yours loud?

I dunno what it's supposed to sound like so I'm not sure if it was loud or not. Needs bearings, gears, and gear housing. I guess the gears are on order and should be in today or tomorrow. They say they think it will be sent back to me on Friday or Monday. Not sure about the cost to upgrade to V3, but I think they give a $500 or $1000 credit towards a V3 purchase based on the condition of the V1 or V2 you send in. At this point, I just want my car back. Purchased 12/13 and it has been at my shop since 12/18.

I feel your pain. Iíve driven mine 2-3 times and no more than 20 miles. After this is on...sorting the tranny. Even after this good news, itíll be 2 more weeks before itíll be here to install. Hoping Iím driving this thing in March.

I guess I was lucky enough to complete the 2,100 mile drive home from Miami to Denver, but the vc/tc gaskets (knew they were seeping at time of purchase) started leaking profusely about 400 miles from home. It's been at the shop since.

I have a pile of parts here that will go on once it gets back from the shop:

rf CV axle and wheel bearing
l+r lower ctrl arms
black grilles
floor mats
engine cover (missing when I bought it)
lots of small stuff


Can't wait to get all this stuff done and get a thorough detail done and then drive it. Hopefully it'll be back on the road by the first week in February.

My supercharger arrived on Tuesday and I installed it yesterday. So far, no check engine light. I cleaned out the throttle body, MAF and air filter element and all the piping. It seems to be quiet happy and is a blast to drive, even with the Trans Fail Safe - gears 3-5 are fine, so I have that going for me.

What host do most of you use to post pics? I took a few yesterday while knuckle busting through the install. It's definitely tight under there, but it works. The most fun part was the normally easy job of tightening or loosening the belt. I'd made it too tight and it was squeaking at start up. With the headlamp out I was able to get it done in the dark.

The only hiccup I had was when I started it that crappy plastic line off the expansion tank blew off. So, I cut it out and replaced it with rubber hose and brass connectors. I'll probably change it to copper since you can buy sticks of it at Lowes for $5 & it eliminates that problem.

Next up Transmission. I found a rebuilt unit with t-case (new chains) and rebuilt and lengthened front drive-shaft. I just have to get it here from Far Far and Away.

I've had the X5 since Christmas day and have not been able to drive it really at all, but at least with the supercharger on, I can tool around with it. She's inching towards being in a good place mechanically, then on to some paint correction.

I will be selling the snow tires/wheels if anyone is interested. The 87's are sitting while the wrenching is going on. Brand new Blizzacks on Tire Racks in house wheel brand - and they have scratches.

I have a Mac and use the resident photo editing program. I save it as a jpeg file. There is a size of file limitation so if it doesn't upload the file size needs to be reduced. That can be done be reducing definition or the size of the photo. I leave the photo at the large size and reduce definition to medium and it uploads and is the correct size.

Hi Phil.

When I recently repaired my 6HP26 with new solenoids, seals etc, we noted some wildly varying clutch pressures when checking them. Some were zero, some were minus and some were off the scale.

I understand that these need to be all within roughly the same level? Do these variations point to solenoids specifically?
