It has a Fairbanks shift kit in it. I set it up to their "Competition" specs, which includes the accumulator blocker rod. The blocker rod for the accumulator stops it's movement but it should block all fluid flow, at least I would think.
Then a gain, I do not really understand valvebody modifications, so maybe some step in the shift kit would block fluid flow to the accumulator in order to complement the blocker rod? If that's the case, should I hook up the gauge to the front servo port or are mainline pressures only seen their in 3rd gear?
The only ports that I know are-
Front Servo- sees pressure in D but only in 3rd
Accumulator- sees pressure all the time
Rear Servo- sees pressure in R and 1
Gov Port- sees pressure 1 psi per mph (useless with my 300 psi gauge)
OD Port (on driver's side)- sees pressure in 4th only
The trans has a billet input, billet clutch baskets, billet pistons and better seals to help with leaks, a couple extra clutches and steels throughout. It's built as well as a transmission rookie as myself could build it. I have no complaints other than figuring out a place to monitor pressures and the ever-present stupid pan fluid slight weep.
