Have a question on my wifes '86 Caprice. 305, feedback quadrajet, assuming its a 700 trans. She's compaining of sluggish acceleration again. Trans shifts fine in all gears. My questions are:
Do the early 700's lockup in third gear and fourth? (this one seems to go into LU in third)
If so, can I unplug the third gear switch on the VB
so it only locks in fourth without hurting anything?
Can it be run in the "D" position in town (not in "OD") without hurting anything?
I guess what i'm trying to do is keep the rpm's up some at low speeds so its a little more driveable instead of being in OD and lockup at 35mph. Kinda muttly!
