well I did install that clutch from team ,, and I like it, it doest have the low rpm at cruising speed like I figured ,but there was some improvement ,,,and no power loss ,,,but on the high end I love it,,,79km per hour,,,, and yes i want to sell my diesel clutch,, but u south of the border ,,probly pay way less for what we du up here,,, i paid 494 Canadian, at my dealership,,,so any offers
Simply put- Not soI suppose I should simply take the time to read all the way through these posts to find where someone suggested possibly retrofitting the non EBS system with the new updated dynamic braking. Moreover, something about switching the input shaft on the trans for the brake on shaft technology, to give an older model the new type of engine brake. Just to clarify, whoever suggested that, was putting out very bad information. The input shafts are not only totally different in both diameter and length, but are completely geared different, and WILL NOT mate to the gears inside the transmission. You would have to change so much INSIDE the transmission, as well as the input-shaft/clutch-side case-half, that by the time you changed everything to make it work, you likely could have bought another transmission. Anyway, it was brought to my attention that someone had suggested it could be done by simply changing the shaft, and I promise you, that is the farthest thing from the truth.You could do away with that TEAM secondary and use the older transmission in conjunction with the updated primary without the benefit of the EBS, but "updating" that older/non-825 transmission IS NOT gonna happen, so please don't waste your money buying those clutch-sets hoping to make that happen. If this has already been covered, sorry. Two very different transmissions inside.
A common misconception, for whatever reason. The 825i has more torque at every rpm than the 855D. And 25+% more peak TQ.I guess the clutch would get worked harder (at risk) if you try to pull a full load (1500 lbs trailer) and stuff in the cargo since RPM's will be lower. The diesel probably has better low end torque.
I did. Engages sooner than when using the diesel spring with diesel weights... due to the lesser initial force of the spring. It also goes about 1 mph more at most rpms than the diesel spring, but if felt just a little too weak/soft for me, so I went with the diesel spring.
How long did you run it with the 855d parts? Any long term problemsThe weights are part number AM140452, and the spring is M161228. I ordered them online from Green Farm Parts. They were the cheapest I could find. This combo has cut the engine revs by 1000 rpm thru out the entire speed range.
I can share my experience and testing using 855d weights and springs. This setup provides a very harsh engagement when up and down shifting. There is a much better alternative with the Venom Performance Shift Kit.
