Channel Plate, Hardened & Ground
The cast iron sealing ring on the Ford AXOD & E, AX4S, AX4N AND 4F50N turbine shaft frequently wears the mating surface on the aluminum channel plate. The resulting internal leakage diminishes cooler/lube flow, which contributes to common overdrive planetary failure. Hypoeutectic aluminum castings have insufficient silicon content to withstand the erosive wear of ductile iron. Sonnax has made available a hardened and ground steel sleeve 96803 to salvage worn channel plates.
- Hardened and ground steel sleeve is more wear-resistant than OE.
- Salvages worn channel plates.
