Hi Chief
Would you know if the steel and bronze clutch plates for a Paragon P31A can be used on a P33A? And I'd be interested in your secret for aligning the splines. My transmission is working fine but you never know when you may have to be taking it apart and putting it back together in some backwater.

Paragon issue

It's been awhile since anyone has posted here (and I do know that etiquette that says you should let and old thread die), but my Paragon is slipping and I saw a good bit of knowledge here that could help me. If I am motoring the trans will begin to start slipping, if I shift out of gear and then back in it will catch again for a little while before slipping again. It's a Paragon p33. Anyone have any idea of what this could be? If anyone has a copy of the service manual I would love to get my hands on one as well. I've emailed Great Lakes Power, but haven't gotten a response yet. I am also in the Seattle area (Bellingham WA), and would love a recommendation of someone to talk to.

Paragon transmission slipping

I posted this a while ago. Perhaps it'll be of some help to you:

I also have a Paragon (P33AL)Gear but have not yet had the problem of the shaft rotating in neutral. But I looked it up in the Paragon operator manual: Basically there are only 3 possible causes: Defective forward clutch plates, Defective forward Clutch Piston release spring or Binding in Planetary Assembly.

I'll attach a JPEG snapshot of the appropriate TROUBLESHOOTING section that goes into more detail.

Let me know if it doesn't come through or if you can't read it and I'll send it to you by direct email.

Hope this helps

Bad service

If they found it, bought it, and installed it, they should damn well stand over it !.

Re: Paragon Transmission

I just took my Paragon out of my Morgan and it has a shaft brake on the rear end. Too bad you dont have one of those. I think I posted a picture of it on my Tranny posts.

Re: Paragon Transmission

Paragons are simple, hopefully the person "repairing" is not.

I have a 33 that is a RTO, tested and ready to ship.

My advice, depending on your long range plans is to dump it an get a Borg Warner gear. I have several BW's with various redux. Some folks ask me why I have so many BW gears and I answer, "Because they last longer than the engines".

Have a nice day!
