Goerend Transmission out of St. Lucas, Iowa, has been operating for over 70 years. Goerend not only helps those out in need of transmission work for your everyday vehicles all the way up to 2,000-horsepower diesel trucks that sled pull, drag race, and dyno. But, as the industry grows, new manufacturer designs come out forcing companies like Goerend to innovate new and exciting parts to keep you going. For instance, we caught up with Marisa Goerend, at Goerend Transmission to get the scoop on all of their new parts heading into 2019.
A lot of times when people combine the words diesel trucks and performance, one thing comes to mind. Transmission issues. With the weight of these trucks and additional power just a push of a button away, these transmissions’ take abuse. Now, I think we can all agree that the Dodge trucks are the most popular, but Goerend takes that and applies their years of experience to the other manufacturers to ensure they have the same tough parts behind their fire-breathing engines.
Goerend Ford Triple Disc Torque Converter
As you may know, the rebuildable torque converter has become one of the hot tickets as of late. Well, Goerend wanted in on the action and has taken care of all of you Ford fans. All of these torque converters are designed and manufactured in-house and feature multiple industry-leading elements. Firstly, the converters showcase a pretty billet front cover. Although you can’t see it, you’ll rest easy knowing it looks as good as it works.
With every truck, there is a different setup. That’s why Goerend offers custom-made high-torque multiplication billet stators to fit your application. “We have doubled the converter clutch area so you can hold more power on your 6R140 converter,” said Goerend. “On the E40D, 4R100, and 5R110 transmissions, the converter clutch area has been more than tripled and upgraded with larger turbines and impeller’s to increase efficiency and hold more power.”
