FWIW I use type f in all my GM trannys. The only difference I know of is Dex has friction modifiers and type f does not. So, as I understand it, you'll have less clutch slippage when using type f in GM trannys. I've had a couple of TH400s with 100k on them without issue.

Thanks. I'm just missing 1/2 a quart so I'll just wait until I take it to the shop and get all the info. This way I get it checked out and it'll get new oil anyway.

Good idea...but it's one of those things that they wouldn't know what the transmission is like until they get inside it and check. I would recommend you talk to people that you know and whom they'd recommend. If all is working well, maybe all you need to do is have it resealed and put it back in the truck...always a good idea to talk to people and have them give you a reference. Chances are, if like you say it's working well, and for what it sounds like the type of driving you want to do, that the trans is in decent shape.

One of my other neighbors is a mechanic and has his shop in town. I'll ask him who he takes his transmissions to when he gets a client with problems. I know he doesn't rebuild them there.

Hey Carlos...when you get a minute can you tell me what type of intake you have...name and part number. I was just looking at the picture you took and it looks fairly tall...it could be just the picture but let me know, I may have more questions for you.

Perfect...that's exactly what you need to do. He may even be able to go through it himself...on the side???

I don't know about him doing anything on the side, he owns the shop, but he might know enough to open it and clean it and reseal it or whatever. I'll find out.

I have no clue what intake it is so I took these 2 pictures. If you need any other angle let me know. We removed the cab today so it's all in the open easy to get to.

Well Carlos you do have a nice Edelbrock Performer Intake and a Holley Carb. Nice start. The reason I asked id because in the picture the intake looked quit tall and sometimes that may reflect something fairly high performance. The Performer Intake should work well for you. Nice and clean as well.

As far as your neighbor, that's an excellent start, if he can't do it I'm sure he can put you in touch with the right people. He has to live close to you so he won't want to steer you wrong.

It does have a mild cam in it. I'll post a video on youtube and give you the link real quick. If I could post a video here I'd do it but it seems only pictures.

The video was taken by me before we removed the cab and replaced the radiator mount. You might even notice the cab is mounted sideways. I also rerouted the tranny oil cooler lines which you see way up in the air to beside the frame. All wiring is now out and so is the everything else. The cab is bare sitting on the side of the house right now. It was a total mess but it's getting a lot better. I decided to tear it down completely so it'll be a reliable daily driver on a modern suspension and brake system but still a '49 F1 to cruise around in.

Here's the link :

If I'm not supposed to post links to youtube here let me know and I'll remove it quickly.

You're too kind. If this looks good then it'll look insane when I'm done. Did you notice the brake booster is pointing into the air? They took it off the car which I suspect has a slanted firewall and just bolted it on my truck which has a vertical firewall. I already cut the mount and welded it back on so it's fixed.

Did you see below the booster? They added a 15 " piece of metal to mount the brake line "distributor" (sorry don't know what it's called. The thing that sends the fluid from the booster to the 4 lines. ) instead of just bending the lines and mounting it below on the frame.

Don't get me started the previous owners I think just wanted it to work around the yard or down the road and back.

I removed all the wiring and I'm going to replace it and rewire it myself because I think they had stock in a electrical tape company. They taped EVERYTHING. I spent hours just removing tape so I could figure out what the wires were for before I removed it all from the cab.

Let me stop because I could on for hours but at least I know that with help from my neighbor and guys like you on this forum I'll make it a really nice and above all a safe reliable ride.

Yes Carlos, I noticed all that stuff....what I looked at was the actual cab itself...it looks pretty good. This is work in progress, it's not supposed to look pristine yet...The cab looks straight and trust me I've seen a lot worse. If it was done it wouldn't be a project.

Happy to help
Ray

The link is on Reply # 24

The master cylinder I guess is the red one and it goes to the smaller one below it that sends it to the 4 brakes. That's the one I don't know the name and it's just hanging there 15" off the frame because they were lazy.
