Cool

you need the converter to lock up in at least OD to avoid over heating the tranny.

If you run in OD and the engine RPM is at or in the stall RPM range of the converter the tranny will heat up

Bowtie Overdrives has a lockup kit that includes a pressure switch, solenoid and wiring harness for $70. Everybody else gets $125+ for the same thing.

TCI does one for a good bit less than $125 too. I've used this one but wasn't able to get the vaccum switch to operate like I wanted. Turned out I didn't even need to worry about it and just wired it up to lock in O/D or when I flipped a switch under my dash.
