Transmission case is cracked

Does anyone know if this is common, or just my bad luck? My truck has been making a vibration at 40 mph and then again at 70 mph and higher. I was thinking u joints at first. But, now I'm thinking the transmission was going out this whole time. Or is it possible that the vibe caused the transmission to break? Today when I was driving the truck, I felt a thump and then I only had the vibe at 40 mph not at 70 mph. The truck seemed to shift fine on the way home, so...... I dunno. Guess it's time to take out a transmission.....

Jse have you checked your motor mounts? And or your rearend? Had a turbo 400 shater a case only because the motor twisted the frame on a 69 chevelle as it shifted. The driveline was too long and jamed into the tail housing stopping the rotation and boom. So with that info my theroy is with a firm shift or a broken mount it might have done it? My rig is 9200lbs and when I had JW build my tranny the shift was hard and has some what calmed down sime my DP install?

No, I haven't, but I'm thinking of replacing them anyway. Also, I'd replace the trans mounts, u-joints, up-pipes, and who knows what else.... or sell as is then save for something newer??? Just sucks having more time to think than money to spend......

Any sort of mistorquing may cause a cracked housing, also improper alignment to the block or overtightening of bellhousing bolts.

Mine was cracked 180 degrees around the top half of the bellhousing. I couldnt find any reason why and threw a new one in along with flex plate, torque convertor and mounts. Its been a few months now and no problems yet.

Did you get your flex plate checked to see if it was bad?

A bunch of teeth were missing. Probably should've checked for cracks as well...
