    4l80e broken cracked bellhousing

    So I finally got around to removing my 80e. Anybody have a clue how this would happen? My best guess is it happened when my drive shaft blew. Idk but it's frusterating as hell.


    Next, with no relation to the above statement. I removed the trans fluid that was in the pan and there was a crap load of sediment left in there. I rolled it up ina ball the size of quarter. I tried to see if it was magnetic but it wasn't. Clutches i'm guessing.

    When I blewy driveshaft up that's exactly what happened to mine. The bellhousing was in pieces AND it broke the starter mount off of the block life sucked that day.

    That sounds real bad. let me guess....

    You blew your aluminum driveshaft right?

    That will explain the allergic reaction you have to aluminum now days. !!!!!

    blowing driveshafts goes from just hitting the gas tank to split the engine block. So yes, your 80e was torn by that.

    I got mine torn along with my transfercase when my steel DS was twisted and the crossjoint in the rear gave up.

    As for the gum inside, nothing a refreshing build won't cure.

    Good luck in your repairs.

    I'd like to compare the size of your stock DS and mine. Mine's aluminum too, but it seems to be HUGE compared to most I've seen...

    Lol. Your not the only one with a huge aluminum driveshaft, or a huge wiener for that matter. Haha. I think the stock aluminum driveshafts are 5 inches, don't quote me in that one though.

    That sounds right. When I first saw the one in my CCSB I was surprised.
