The file extension was .php and when I went to add them again here on this thread, the forum software said invalid file type, so I acreenshot them and posted that way. Kinda weird but I found a workaround

That's weird. The php extension is not an image file -- it's what the pages are written in. I think you may have downloaded the pages themselves.

I had no idea roll over was a thing. I did however immediately tear apart a granny 4 speed I rebuilt once. I couldn't find anything wrong and reassembled it. I was running the truck with no tranny cover on it and the noise was terrible. I thought something was completely wrong until I covered it up.

This has been really informative, keep the transmission tips coming!

I have an '06 TJ Jeep with a 6speed and it chatters a bit idling in warm weather. I was worried about bearings, but now hearing that it may be normal, put me at ease

I dont know if anybody caught this...but if you are running gear oil and now running 50 weight as you stated thats more than likely why youve had so many failures. This transmission takes 30 weight oil
