i just want to thank all you guys that took your valuable time to help me out. i know im not a regular here and you dont know me from jack but you still took time to read my issues and offer advice. i thank you!
after a few trips to the salvage yard, i finally have a working work truck with a freshened up '95 350 and od transmission that actually shifts!! all my oem gages work, ac blowin and everything so i installed my old flowmaster and duals too!
i painted my engine during rebuild but since the trans came paint marker'd from a salvage yard with a 30 day warranty, unfortunately i could not paint it.
