Installing the BD Valve Body
2000-04 Dodge Ram
TOOL LIST: Inch Pound Torque Wrench
3/8” or ½” Dr Socket sets including 11mm & 13mm socket
#25 Torx Bit
Combination Wrench Set including 7/16” & ¾”
3/16” Allen wrench
High Quality Pressure Gauge (0 - 160 psi)

2 Bottles of Red Lubeguard (Recommended)
All Diesel Rams should be tested prior to engine or transmission performance
tuning. Check transmission oil level prior to all work. Pressure testing will
produce test results that can help to determine the ability of the transmission to
prevent the clutch surfaces from slipping. Slippage will result in premature
convertor and transmission wearing characteristics (soft or severe shifting, high
transmission temperature).
2800-3000 rpm (wide open throttle)
Ensure shift points are correct before
recording pressures (transmission at
operating temp).

IMPORTANT – IF PRESSURES AND/OR SHIFT POINTS ARE NOT TO SPECS THE
TRANSMISSION MUST BE REPAIRED OR SERVICED BEFORE MODIFICATIONS.
1. Pressure testing is accomplished by inserting a fitting and hose assembly with a
good quality gauge into the center 1/8” port on the passenger side of the
transmission. Leave the gauge attached for testing later.
2. VERY IMPORTANT – Road test with gauge in place and record pressures and shift
point RPM’s BEFORE modifications are carried out to determine the condition of the
transmission prior to installing this valve body.
Pressure will only be indicated with transmission in Drive position.
3. Secure the vehicle with wheel chocks and place the transmission in Neutral.
4. Ensure the valve body has not been damaged in shipping and it is the proper part
number for your vehicle.
5. Starting at the transmission, remove the
kick down lever and spring as well as the
hitch/clevis pin from the shifter rod.
NOTE: DO NOT lose the wave washer.
6. Rotate the shift lever to the rear of the
vehicle to place the transmission in the
PARK position.
7. Loosen the shift lever bolt then rotate the
lever towards the front of the truck
shifting the transmission into 1st / LOW
position. This allows for the removal of
the Park Rod E-clip without dropping the
valve body.
8. Disconnect the wiring connectors from
the Neutral Safety switch and Valve
Body then remove the Neutral Safety

9. Install a large drain pan under transmission, remove oil pan, drain transmission oil
and remove the filter.
10. Carefully remove the E-clip from the park rod, leaving the park rod in the
transmission.
11. Remove the 10 valve body bolts, remembering the location of the different bolts.
**NOTE** Attaching bolts are different lengths and MUST be reinstalled in the
proper location.
12. When lowering the valve body, gently
work it around so that the park rod lever
is left in the transmission and ensure
the electrical plug is not damaged in the
removal process.
13. CAUTION - As you lower the valve
body, watch for the accumulator piston
and spring falling out.
14. This is the time to change to 2nd gear band strut to the heavy duty one we supply.
First loosen the band adjusting screw lock nut with a ¾” wrench, and then unscrew
adjuster until the stock strut can be removed.

15. Install the new BD strut with taper side down, towards the pan, and centered in the
guides. Torque the band adjustment to 72 inch pounds, then back out 2 ¼ turns and
tighten lock nut. The round end of the enclosed micro-hockey stick tool can also be
used as a feeler gauge to set the front band adjustment.
16. From the old valve body, remove the
electrical solenoid and sensor and install
on the new BD Performance Valve Body.
17. IMPORTANT - Before installing the BD
valve body, lubricate the manual-shifting
shaft and the O-ring on the electrical
connector that fit into the transmission
case. Rotate the shift lever all the way
forward to place the valve body in the
1st / Low gear position for later attaching
of the park rod and E-clip.
18. Place the accumulator piston and spring in
the BD valve body, if you cannot balance
these parts on the valve body, hold them in
place with a supporting tool or wire until the
valve body is installed.
19. Once the valve body is in position, insert the
Park rod into the Manual shift lever and hold
the valve body in place with a couple of
bolts.
20. Install the E-clip on the park rod using
the flat, slotted end of the Canadian
micro-hockey stick.
21. Install the valve body mounting bolts, ensuring the different length bolts are installed
in the proper positions, and torque evenly to 100 inch pounds

22. Install the manual lever on the outside of the transmission and check for full
movement of the detent shift. There must be 5 distinct positions that are felt from
Low to Park. Leave in the Neutral position and tighten the retaining bolt.
23. Install neutral safety switch and adjust as required, then tighten. Backup lights at
rear of vehicle should light when shift lever is in reverse position (key on).
24. Install the new filter on the valve body using 3 screws, instead of the 2 that the OEM
filter was attached with (stock on the 97-00 trucks).
25. We suggest you install either a drain plug in the original oil pan or, even better,
install a MAG HY-TEC cast aluminum oil pan, which has extra oil capacity, cooling
fins, a magnetic drain plug, and adds strength to the transmission case to prevent
flexing.
26. Install the shift linkage to the manual lever on the transmission using the wave
washer and hitch pin. Tighten nut securely and install kick-down linkage and return
spring. The kick-down cable can now be attached to the ball socket. Ensure the
wiring harness has some dielectric grease on it and connect it. Ensure not to bend
the pins when attaching the plug.
27. When just the valve body is replaced, fill the transmission with 8 - 9 quarts of ATF.
When both the valve body and torque convertor are replaced, 15 - 17 quarts are
required. IMPORTANT: After 8 quarts have been added, start engine and shift thru
all gears, then check transmission oil level with shifter in Neutral. Then top up and
check as required. DO NOT OVERFILL!
28. After test drive, check oil levels again. Air locks are common in this transmission.
29. Road test vehicle and check for the wide-open shift points to ensure they are correct
and to verify pressures.
These pressures will vary according to the position of the kick down cable adjustment
and the lock-up boost valve. Engine Rpm DOES NOT affect line pressure.
CAUTION – PRESSURE SETTINGS TOO HIGH CAN RESULT IN SEVERE SHIFTS,
LIMP MODE, or 2ND OR 3RD GEAR STARTS.

Kick down cable Adjustment
Kick down cable adjustment is one of the most critical adjustments that affect the
operation of the transmission.
The BD Performance Valve Body is not stock, therefore the factory specifications
for this adjustment are used only as a guide.
Your drivability and performance demands will determine your shift
points and pressure adjustments.
Kick down cable adjustments are for Full Throttle shift points & passing gear
only. Light throttle shift points should be adjusted on the valve body throttle
valve stop.
The kick down cable is located underneath the plastic cover as indicated above.
The plastic cover is held in place by 2 plastic Phillips head screws, only light pressure is
required to remove them. Do not lose the screws or washers when removed.
On trucks equipped with Cummins ISB, full throttle shift between 2nd and 3rd should
occur between 2800 - 3000 rpm (OEM) at operating temperature.

Locate kick down cable and remove from the throttle linkage and support bracket.
IMPORTANT – Before any
adjustments are made, MARK THE
CABLE at its original setting.
Remove the white colored locking clip.
**CAUTION** DO NOT USE A SCREWDRIVER TO PERFORM THIS FUNCTION, IF
CLIP BREAKS THE CABLE WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED
Adjust the cable forward, towards radiator, to make transmission shift earlier.
Adjust the cable back to the rear, towards firewall, to make transmission shift later.
(Adjustment spec – 1/8 inch movement = @75 rpm)
Install the white locking clip and re-install the cable thru the support bracket and then on
the throttle lever.
Install the plastic cover when job is complete.

Pressure adjustments
Valve Body pressure adjustment and Throttle valve cable adjustment affect each other,
(ie: if you raise pressure, the transmission may shift sooner and vise versa).
TAKE YOUR TIME WHEN MAKING THESE ADJUSTMENTS TO ENSURE THE
TRANSMISSION PERFORMS TO YOUR PREFERRED DRIVING STYLE.
If the pressures are not according to specifications, please call our Transmission
Technical department for assistance. The valve body is designed and tested with a
specified pump volume. Different pressures are due to non-standard pump
characteristics. Which is why you must check the pressures before performing this
modification.

RAM TRUCK TROUBLE CODE
If you receive a “GOV PRESSURE OUT OF LIMIT” causing LIMP MODE (stuck in 3rd gear)
trouble code, check the voltage at Pin # 31 at the PCM.
PCM Connectors: Under hood on fire wall
Remove air box for easy access
Remove middle cover and locate
Orange wire at pin # 31
Isolate wire and install resistor
Resistor can be installed either way
Solder and use shrink tubing
IMPORTANT - Dodge requires that Pin 31 on the connector should have a signal of @ +5.0 V.
Because some vehicles produced have a signal voltage higher than this (5.1 – 5.3 V), this
modification allows the voltage to remain below @ 5.0 V as required to ensure a trouble code of
“Gov pressure out of limit” causing limp mode (stuck in 3rd gear).
If the voltage at Pin 31 is HIGHER than +5.1 V then install a 100 Ohm, ¼ watt resistor to bring the
voltage below +5 V.
