BTE Transmission Pressure Gauge

BTE940700 BTE Transmission Pressure GaugeLink
Having information real time information about engine RPM, oil
pressure, or fuel pressure are very important. Equally important, but
often overlooked, is information on the pressure level of your
automatic transmission fluid. Each transmission has an optimal
pressure range for each gear, and BTE's Transmission Pressure Gauge is
a great way to have this information available at all times when in
the driver's seat. Low or dropping fluid pressure can indicate a
number problems within the transmission, so having this information
can prevent costly transmission failure. With a maximum pressure
rating of 300 PSI, it will work for most applications. We also have 2
line kits available with lengths of 6 and 12 feet in length. The
gauge is manufactured by the leading USA performance instrument
company, and is available in attractive silver. We will also have
this gauge available in black sometime in the second half of 2011.

BTE's Transmission Re-building Service

BTE's Transmission Re-building Service

We manufacture and sell everything for you to build your own
transmissions; but we also have our own team of builders that can
repair and service your existing unit. We will bring it up to our own
race specifications, install new clutches, bands, bushings, and seals,
and we will test it on our transmission testing machine. Getting the
transmission to us is simple: just contact us to get the correct
shipping information for FedEx Freight, and you can send it to our
facility quickly and cheaply. Rebuilds for powerglide transmissions
start at $299.95.

Give us a call at 1-800-626-1828 to get more information on having your transmission rebuilt.

BTE Locking Dipsticks

Locking Dipsticks

A key safety improvement in a racing powerglide is the addition of a
locking dipstick. A locking dipstick prevents fluid from venting or
blowing out of the filler tube and keeps it off the the track. These
rigid tubes mount closely to the transmission case to clear any
shields or tight transmission tunnels. The base of the filler tube
also includes a rubber boot for a snug and secure fit with the
transmission case. A locking dipstick is required at most racing
tracks. We have dipsticks available for standard setups or for
dragsters and altereds, and for stock and aftermarket transmission
cases. Pair this with our overflow tank kit for a very safe and race
ready transmission.

BTE 258210 Powerglide Deep Aluminum Pan with black coating

BTE 258210 Powerglide Deep Aluminum Pan with black coating

One of the most cost effective ways to improve your powerglide
transmission in several different areas is with the addition of a deep
pan. Our deep aluminum pan for the powerglide does several important
things to improve the transmission:

1. The added depth increases the fluid capacity. More fluid provides
more stable temperatures. The increased surface area also allows for
more effective cooling, as well as do the fins that run the length of
the pan, adding more area for heat to dissipate.

2. A cast aluminum pan is much more rigid than a fabricated aluminum
pan or stamped steel pan. This rigidity will decrease flex in the
transmission case in many areas, increasing the overall strength of
the transmission greatly.

3. The black coating dissipates heat more effectively, and keeps the
pan much cleaner as it resists staining and grime from penetrating the
cast aluminum.

This kit includes everything you need to make the very easy conversion
to our deep pan setup: all new pan bolts, a new gasket, and a filter

Even if you don't build your own transmissions, this is something that
any racer can easily install within a few minutes. Refill the
transmission with BTE's transmission fluid for an even better
performing transmission after the install.
