PRO SPORTSMAN and COMPETITION ELIMINATOR with optional orange finish

Higher Modified Performance, Muscle cars and Trucks built for
STREET/STRIP and COMPETITION USE
"when automatic shifting functions are desired"
UP TO 650 H.P.
call for an
 SMR "PRO SPORTSMAN" TRANSMISSION

The SMR PRO SPORTSMAN series transmission incorporates the latest technology and upgrades for greatly enhanced performance and reliability in modified street/strip,and competition vehicles where automatic shifting features are desired.
Shifts are FIRM, CLEAN and CRISP with the fully automatic or manually controlled shifts with a standard pattern. 
 
The PRO SPORTSMAN is constructed with the same components as the SMR COMPETITION ELIMINATOR series with the addition of a governor system and automatic valvebody.
 
WHEN FULL MANUAL CONTROL, WITH THE ULTIMATE SHIFT PERFORMANCE IS CALLED FOR-                           
the SMR COMPETITION ELIMINATOR series transmission, fills the bill!
 
Featuring our renowned, REVERSE PATTERN valvebody, with Anti-drainback valving, full time lube, increased converter pressure, and clean lightning quick shifts, for maximum reliability and performance.
Options can be added to the Competition Eliminator series 727, to reliably handle up to 1000 h.p.

CRAIG NELSON'S HEMI CUDA

Craig "comment on my trans is easy - one word BULLET PROOF
My 'Cuda is no trailer queen.  I run it hard, I race it both on the strip and street.
I asked Pat [owner of SMR Transmissions] to build me a trans that could stand up to my HEMI.  He did it and the trans is a great part of my car.  Pat was a pleasure to do business with. -Thanks-"

TRANSMISSION FEATURES:
CASE:
       EXTERIOR:- is meticulously cleaned and inspected.  The cleaning and surface refinishing process is accomplished by high pressure wash, hot chemical pressure wash, oxide blasting and final high pressure rinse.
         -all casting flashings are removed to stress relieve the case and improve the appearance; 
        - careful examination of the case for stress cracks, impact damage, warpage or stripped threads;       
        -an acrylic primer and finish orange color coat is applied to assist in detecting cracks and leaks and to provide easy maintenance good looks into the future;
        -or satin finish lacquer sealer coat is applied to provide easy maintenance and good looks;
        -all bolts, fittings, hardware and pan are glass beaded, primed and painted or clear coated to keep the original appearance. 
        - Stamped steel deep pan with billet aluminum filter extension is utilized to provide extra cooling capacity and increased fluid to prevent air suction on hard launches and decelleration. Every pan is equipped with a drainplug to make adjustments and regular maintenance a much easier task.
 
      
 
          INTERIOR:- excess cast flashings are removed to stress-relieve the case;
          -servo and accumulator bores are honed to restore ring seal for proper apply and release pressures;
          -mating surfaces of the valvebody and pump are re-surfaced for true sealing and to prevent crossflows;
          -outer overrunning clutch (sprag) race is inspected and replaced if necessary then re-staked to prevent future failure;
          -meticulously cleaned to prevent any contamination of internal components.
 
INTERNAL COMPONENTS:
            -all seals, gaskets, seal rings and filters are replaced with the finest premium quality, precision made components;          
            -all drums and sealing surfaces are re-surfaced to proper face textures for optimum performance their specific function;
            -drum bushings are replaced;
           -Tailhousing bushing and seal are replaced;
           -pump is re-machined, new bushing and seals installed and modifications made to enhance lubrication, line pressure, converter apply pressure and cooling. The pump is carefully blueprinted and assembled with .002-.0025" side clearance for optimum performance.
           - pump and forward drive hub are modified to increase lubricaton and cooling of the direct clutch pack for longer clutch life;
           -a 4 pinion front planetary is utilized to provide additional torque capacity in race applications and a new 5 pinion, all steel carrier planetary is used in all street or street/strip applications.
           -forward clutch pack release spring, roller clutch and spring components, thrust washers and seal rings are replaced with new upgraded components; 
          - High gear drum utilizes Chromemoly high pressure seal rings (except '62-70 727);
              - 12 new Direct Clutch springs are installed to provide firm clean upshifts and prevent clutch drag in 1st and 2nd gear;
           -the 2nd gear apply lever (kickdown) is replaced with a Billet Steel 4.2:1 ratio lever to increase band apply pressure for greater clamping force. 
           -the governor assembly is thoroughly cleaned, polished, re-surfaced and reassembled to provide higher shift point capability;
            -the aluminum output shaft support is re-surfaced or replaced and the output shaft and rear drum bearing surfaces of the support are Molybdenum burnished substancially increasing its' load bearing capacity;
             -the output shaft is carefully inspected for heat damage, straightness or signs of wear and then polished on all bearing surfaces to reduce bearing friction and wear and enhance lubrication;
              -clutch friction plates (5 in High Gear Drum and 4 in Forward) are all premium high energy Kevlar compound and bands the bands are ProSeries units with the latest technology in high co-efficient composites to maximize performance, longevity and fade-free performance consistancy;
               -all pressure plates are machined and surfaced to provide 100% friction contact apply area; 
               -all friction bearing steel plates are new high grade American made, components with a surface designed specifically to enhance fluid retention with the friction clutch materials utilized;
               - Low/Reverse servo, accumulator and Intermediate band apply and release servo are modified for firm direct apply shifts without power robbing cushion apply.  The band apply pin is polished and moly burnished to prevent binding, friction and wear; 
                - each component including the pump, clutch packs, servos, forward drum assembly, input and output shaft, are precisely blueprinted to the optimum clearance specification.
                - A new neutral safety switch and cooler fittings are installed for leak free performance and reliability.
 
NOTE: Certain applications may require additional cost component upgrades as determined by power, weight and other factors.
 
VALVEBODY:- is carefully disassembled and inspected for previous modification, cracks, warpage or damaged passages or bores;
             - every valve is hand polished to remove burrs and scratches;
             - the valve bores are carefully honed to remove burrs or scratches;
             - shift and pressure governing springs are tested and/or replaced to increase converter apply, line and governor pressures and quicker shift characteristics;
             -1-2 valving is modified to provide manual control of 1st gear downshifts and accomodate manual shift control when desired;
            - Anti Drainback valving is added to prevent converter drain-back which would result in delayed converter engagement, fluid aeration, inconsistant performance and accelerated clutch wear;             
             -modifications and valve changes are made to provide Lubrication in all gears including Park;
             -the separator plate and fluid passages are modified to substancially reduce overlap between gears and increase fluid flow and velocity to apply clutch packs quicker and with greater clamping force and release bands quicker to improve performance and increase component life; 
              - the main governing body and transfer plate are re-surfaced to prevent crossflow and pressure leakage and in some models, fluid channels are reinforced to avoid possible fatigue failure;
             - each valvebody is precision assembled using hand tools only and carefully calibrated for it's particular application; and
             - the valvebody is finally bench tested to assure proper pressure apply sequences, shift circuit operation and leakdown.  
          
TESTING: Every function of the transmission assembly is precision tested during the rebuild to assure leak free pressure apply every component.  Every circuit apply and release function is precisely tested and evaluated prior to completion.  Only through comprehensive tests are we assured that the transmission will perform to its' peak efficiency and customer satisfaction.
