    Who put rock\'s in my tranny? * Need some help*

    Well the K5 has been sitting for a week (loose front crossmember & bad torque converter)I moved to the K5 to it's resting spot under the tree in the front of the house. When I started up the truck,and let it run it sounded like there was pebbles in the tranny (kinda like a rock tumbler) what could have else could have gone bad? Need to get some idea's (for a worse case scenerio) Basically I'm pretty much fawked!right? /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Also does anyone wanna give me a hand pulling the exhaust,t-case,and tranny? It would have to be on a Saturday/Sunday (most people have it off from work) Thanks..

    sounds like it might have taken out the front pump /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    I'd agree that the pump probably failed. Time for a rebuild in that tranny.

    when you pull the tranny make sure to try and get a transmission jack.ive pulled many a tranny and believe me its much smoother when you got one.takes about half hour out and in because the tranny jack usually has side to side tilt to get it lined up with the engine and it also has a chain so that it holds it in place so it cant fall off.it will also help you to pull out the transfer.if you can rent one or borrow one for the day. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    My tranny was making the "rock tumbler " sound too, but only when I put it into park. turned out to be the reverse sprag - bearings and fragments everywhere.

    By the way, I bought a tranny adapter for my floor jack for $35. It fits into the hole in the top of the floor jack. It is pretty nifty. Not quite as nice as a real tranny jack, but not bad for $35.
