out with the old and in w/the new.
Wasn't too messy, did bathe a shoe in fluid. It's water proof.
New one on the jack and ready to go up.

Hope she survives, a trany transplant.
About a month ago I pulled away from a stop and heard a bang.
Sounded like a rock on my door, no one around.
No tools bouncing down the road after me.
Today I find the bottom shock mount cockeyed and the mount not connected.
Off to hockey play offs..........

can't finish up tuning until I fix the trany.
Had them build a 2500 stall converter to match.

04-23-2015 03:34 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.
