B&A billet heat-sink PTO covers
« on: March 23, 2013, 07:20:20 pm »
Hours, and hours of research before rebuilding my first Getrag G360 told me that the number one killer of the Getrag is heat. I searched long and hard for a good, and affordable solution to help lower the operating temps of my fresh tranny. Anything I found that i liked was over-priced. And the few things I found that might have been affordable, were discontinued, or obsolete. So since I had access to bitchin' tools, I decided to come up with my own solution:







pretty self explanatory. You can see in the third pic that they are finned on the inside also for more surface area to wick heat out of the fluid. And best of all they work! my first test wasn't very scientific. I would drive to work in the morning (summer time, 95deg. ambient temps at 7am here). 20+ miles on the freeway. shop was only 1/2mile from exit. I would park, jump out, roll under truck, and place my hand flat on bottom of the tranny. with the stock stamped-steel PTO covers installed, I was not able to hold my hand on the tranny for more than 10-15 seconds. It was just too hot. With two of my heat-sink covers installed, I was able to hold my hand on the tranny as long as I wanted. It was still plenty warm, but it was not going to burn me. I was quite amazed actually, so I decided to get all scientific! I installed a mechanical temperature guage in the drain plug hole right in the bottom of the tranny. I found that the covers made roughly a 20-30deg. difference! Which I found quite amazing. I have also gotten feedback from a customer who claimed an 18deg. difference. They definitely work.

I get alot of people asking me why the fins run vertically, rather than horizontally. well, contrary to what most people think, the air under your truck next to your transmission is not rushing by like it would be if you stuck your arm out the window. rather, it is very turbulent, and rushing in all directions. yes i performed an actual study of this before i decided which way the fins should run. i concluded that vertical fins would allow hot air to rise, and in turn cool more efficiently.

So, here is one of those parts that not only looks really trick, but they work exactly as intended!

RCC price: $60ea.

    I can confirm for sure that they fit the 205. I have been told that the PTO cover on the 4500/5600 is the same as the 205/G360. I have not confirmed this yet. But, I think I have a 4500 lined up for a test fit.

    This:  http://www.quad4x4.com/qu70005.html  looks reassuring.

    The PTO bolt pattern is standardized and should be the same for just about any US made drivetrain parts.  Be aware that there is an 8 bolt standard pattern as well but it will probably not be found on anything anyone here messes with.

    8 bolts are on heavier trucks seen them on some allisons

    these will also help seal the gaskets better than plate covers..i may be down for 2 soon

    LOL, nice. A long time ago EY8s called it an np205 amplifier. I thought that was funny as I have also made a bunch of custom machined amplifier parts.

    I just placed a huge material order. Since I was way up there in poundage I added a few sticks of PTO cover matl.
    I can drop the price on this batch because of the savings on material.

    They mounted up great.
    I used the same hex bolts that I saw in the pictures.

    Mopar, do you have any of the pto covers left? If so is the cost still $60 each, as in you would need (2) for both sides of the getrag?

    If anybody is interested in the PTO heat-sink covers:
    Get a hold of Geno's garage. They may still have some in stock. I am not sure they will replenish their stock after they run out. I believe they have ordered 100units so far. And it has taken them a little over 2 years to sell them. Not a super fast mover. Not sure if they will continue to stock them. I do know they were getting low, so, if you need them quick, hurry up. I know Sam snagged a couple recently!  {cool}

    If Geno's runs out, and decides to dis-continue them, Get a hold of me, I can always make more if there is demand.

    Welp, I was just on Geno's garage looking for something, and I noticed that these cooler/covers are no longer listed. And, I have not heard anything. So, I guess that means they are done with them.

    If anybody really wants a set, chime in here. If the list hits 22pcs (or 11 sets), I will run them. But, I would need people to pay in advance, and the parts would ship in approximately two weeks. You supply your own hardware. These fit Getrag and NV4500, and NP205. I have also been told they fit NV5600. But, I have not seen that with my own eyes to confirm.

    The price is still $60ea. And, it appears they are now available exclusively right here.

    I honestly can not confirm yes or no.
    I know the bolt pattern is the same. And, they will physically bolt up.
    But, I am not familiar with clearances around the transmission in those trucks.

    Shipping tomorrow!

    I got swamped with work, and totally forgot about them. I need a better work-in-process tracking system.

    They are in the machine running as I type this. And, I will probably pull an all-night'er to get them finished.

    I sent you a PM, but I'd like to get two of the PTO covers if you are going to run another set sometime.  Thanks.  They would be going on the Getrag in my 92.

    Good stuff guys! I just wish there was a bigger market. Genos gave it a good run. But, was not a fast enough mover for them. And, I just can not afford to sit on inventory. There is a good chance, these may never run again.
    Unfortunately, these are expensive to manufacture. It is an expensive chunk of material. And, long cycle time.
    The margins just aren't there to make it worth while.
    Too bad, as I feel, they are still one of the best options. Because, they actually work!

    I actually have a stick of material for these. Been dragging it around for years, LOL.
    The shop is soo busy though. I don't know when I could possibly get to it?
    If I do end up with an empty machine, and run off a batch, I will update.

    I may just have to run out that stick of materials worth of covers soon.
    I have almost run out of work in the shop.
    Kind of strange. Been going gangbusters for over 5 years. Now, it has all but stopped.

    If you are going to machine up a new batch, count me in for two sets (four total), happy to pay in advance if that helps.  Thanks
