ATI Super Shaft & Super Pump |
ATI introduces two new patented ringless Super Shafts
featuring Teflon oil rings installed on the inner diameter
of the stator tube rather than on the input shaft. The
rings insure proper lubrication-oil cooler function and
converter charge pressure identical to a shaft with the
rings on it. The Vasco Super Shaft (Part #207148) replaces
the standard Powerglide input and uses a custom front
pump (part # 205052) with the teflon rings installed in
a heavy duty stator tube. The tube is pressed and pinned
to the stator support.
For over 1,500 horsepower, ATI offers a Vasco Super Shaft
(Part #207149) that has 1-inch 30 spline TH400 splines
on both ends. This shaft requires additional custom parts
on the gear set end to accommodate the new spline. The
input and output sun gears, clutch hub and custom “wedding
band” are required to accept the new spline.
The gears are available only in Vasco material in 1.80
and 1.66 ratios and have enjoyed zero breakage since their
introduction in May of 2000. The shaft requires the custom
pump as above, to eliminate spline failure on the tube
to pump press fit.
ATI’s Super Pump (Part #205038) features a bolt-in,
heat-treated stator-support tube that cannot fail and
comes machined with the rings installed.
