Default Transmission clanking sound help

I've got a CJ5 with new 360 and TF727/IH D20 behind it. It's making a hollow kind of clanking tinney sound and gets louder under load (hill) and loses just about all power before it stalls. First impression was the torque converter wasn't working. I'm not too sure about it now because I've heard it when it was in Park and supposedly the converter shouldn't be turning then??? It shifts OK during normal driving. Only other symptoms are the tranny cooler is only hot at the brass hose connection and cold everywhere else and with the shifter in 2nd it seems to shift between 1st and 2nd.

Any ideas ?

sounds like the tranny pump is not engaged correctly. If the engine is running the converter IS turning. When you put the engine in or pulled the old one did the converter ever come out of the tranny? You mat not have the converter engaged all the way in. Also check you converter bolts to see if they are loose.

OK I got it about the 2nd gear selection. For some reason I was thinking the 727 locked into 2nd. I guess I never notice off road.

It made the noise with the last engine. Same converter and flex plate and yes they did have to come apart. I didn't inspect the pump though. I'm thinking maybe pull the hose for the cooler and see if it's pumping good then if so, pull the cooler and make sure it's clear...

Also mike check that you dont have something binding something since you say the noise is only under stress.

use a pressure gauge, did you get the convertor all the way in? will it do it if you power brake it. is the convertor bad ? sprag on the stator ( in side convertor) if the convertor goes in right you'll feel three clunks 1) imput shaft 2) stator support 3) pump gears, on a t/f the pump gears are rotory with tabs on the inside of the drive gear

Default Final post

The final result was that the bendix was separated from the fork allowing the bendix to rattle back and forth touching the flexplate at times. Once re-attached, all is well.

SSSsshhhh... No it was totally unexplainable and alien forces where detaching and reattaching gear teeth at random until a AMRD (Advanced Martian Repellant Device) was installed creating a cortex confusional state surrounding the vehicle....
