Nag1 Blue Top Solenoids

Shipping is 20 bucks higher. In the end they are very close in price. The site you listed turns out to be 3.80 more after shipping.

I'm pretty sure (97.3% sure) we reused mine on the converter and blue top install. Though if it's not that expensive, you might as well buy a new one just incase something happens to yours.

Does anyone know if the pan gasket is reusable or should I get a new one?

 

Not needed. I did not replace mine when I did my Blue Tops and VB two years ago. Has not leaked a drop ever!

 

Torque numbers for both pan bolts and VB bolts is 71 inch/lbs.

 

BTW... B&M make a very nice and correct dipstick for the NAG. Much better than the Miller Tool. I don't have the part number off hand (I am at work right now). I can get it for you tomorrow or you can Google it. Cost about $80. It's a "Must have" for any NAG owner.

Looking to get a small pump to pull the trans fluid out through the Check tube as to avoid spillage when I pull the pan.

Anyone ever use one?

When you did this did you remove the transmission crossmember?

I've got a new valve body to install - looks straight forward.

Also any recommendations on ATF+4?

I didn't have to remove the crossmember on mine John.

 

The blue tops were a decent upgrade, I liked the shifting. However, it was only a few months later my car went to Arrington and I just to an SHR Viking. Some say the blue tops will give you woke time if you have over 550 rwhp but is only a bandaid.

I used the Mopar Trans fluid.

 

I have the Razors Edge crossmember which allows you to drop the pan without removing the crossmember.

 

I bought a plastic (large n flat) storage container from Wallyworld. Dropped the pan/fluid into that container.

 

Poured old fluid into a used windshield washer jug. Got another wwasher jug that was clean and dry and poured new Trans fluid into it until it matched the level in the other jug. 

 

No need to suck out the fluid via the check tube.

 

I am at 550 rwhp with stock trans except for blue tops/VBody/B&M deep pan/B&M Trans Cooler.

 

Trans still strong. I have about 40 passes on the car.

Actually John, I think we might have had to take my factory crossmember off now that I think about it, it has been almost 4 years now. But I vaguely remember using a jack to support it. All I remember is the first time we had it all apart and I took the solenoids out and they were normal brown tops!! Motherfucker I was pissed.
