04-23-2015 02:34 AM new trany and converter to match on the way
Got the primary jets right I believe @65 primary-73 secondary, and one lower on spring rate for secondaries.
But hesitation at 10,000 rpm down to 500 rpm going up hill. Too lean.
Need more test.
High speed test a disaster---burnt up trany. Hit kick down and over speed on clutches.

Three pole rocker switches & I don't mix well.
Did get all three fans to work and rockers cut power.
Trany cooler has an adjustable thermostat- thats the way to go.
I see a new trany in my future, kick down to pass just slips.

No wonder the twins didn't come on, sloppy crimp job on a connector.
They are supposed to run at anything over 175*
More testing tomorrow, got to get rid of that tank of high octane.
And a PPS that buzzing that drove me nuts- an exhaust clamp was rolled up.
The long end of the bolt was buzzing on the floor board.

04-17-2015 05:07 PM Being cool
With a little help from the guys in electrical, got all the fans /w relays
and lighted cut off rocker switches hooked up.
Far as I could tell the trany cooler fan never came on. The twin
rad fans didn't come on, only got to 185* with my new alum rad
and small fan.
75* day in traffic-- cool.
That pic is my future gauge/switch panel, but not right now.
Couple days of good weather coming up and gas to burn.
Play off time= time for hockey and beerisky tonight.

Developed a rattle/buzzing. Sound like static on the speaker.
I am missing one of my favorite wrenches. Maybe I'll find it.
Got a 195* thermostat, 13# rad cap, runs 180* now, little over 210 in traffic.
