thanks for both tips on the transmission..one Type F fluid..bought that purely by dumb luck haha!..and 2..i found out that i dont know everything..i THOUGHT 7 ton 8 quarts would be enough..when i got the truck running to begin checking this or that..the damned thing wouldnt move after i shifted it into drive or reverse!! i was sure that the transmission was bad after sitting so many years..new fluid,low miles on a factory rebuild,new modulator valve, what was going on????!!!...i cursed and i swore and kicked the truck!...then i remembered my dad saying way back when i was kid...'Stop it with your damned temper tantrums and begin checking AGAIN and AGAIN til you figure it out! are you sure the fluid level is correct??..woops...i went online and found i was nearly 4qts shy of a full transmission..so i added 3 more qts and wow an amazing thing happened,the truck moved when i put it in gear!! hahaha!!!
