In response to Crosley, all the information you provided was helpful and obviously I read it more then once before posting, so yes it was clear what you were saying, I was mainly seeing if somebody has done a similar swap and if there was any tips or guidelines anyone had. As I also mentioned I'm not experienced with transmissions, you would probably say I shouldn't be touching them then, but I like to be able to at least say I tried. The '87 was rebuilt as I told you, I found out yesterday however that it was rebuilt by the previous owner and after his burb was totalled the vehicle sat for a few months and then was pulled down a road in neutral for 6 miles to his friends where they parted it out. Good to know now... After installing it in the truck and finding it wouldn't shift out of first, I figured both transmissions were junk so why not open it up and see what it looks like so I at least have a visual of what's going on, some people I talked to before I registered on here said swapping the valve bodies was fine, so how would I know otherwise that swapping parts could cause issues. I know much more now then I did even two days ago, so bear with me if that's possible for you more experienced guys on here..
Annnd Briscoe, I know you know your stuff just as crosley does and I would prefer not to be on anyones bad side, as far as what is the matter with me... idk, why don't you tell me, I figured saying I was 17 would make it clear enough that I'm new to it all and I'm gonna end up doing stupid ****, I figured it would be more productive for me to try to understand it before I pulled it rather then remove it and pull it down the road behind my truck like my buddy did and watch it break into pieces.
As I said, try to bear with me here.. I'll get it eventually.
