I'm very ashamed to say this, musta been a little overdose of entusiasm while asembling, beer and trannies don't get along well late at nigth, I found the Z shaped gasket installed against the case not on top of the divider and the other gasket on top of the plate, I'm sure this created a bad leak in the VB
, could this have been the problem for the last burnout? I'm sure I had the rest rigth, the clutch clearance was 2 pennies, the seals were new and the case aparently was flawless, still puzzles me the earlier failures, I just rebuilt it again and installed it back in the truck, hope this is the last time of R&R.
The tranny was modified following the Hot Rod magazine article "Poor man's TH350 hop up" july 1988, it works great while it works, strong firm shifts same as the ones you get with the B&M shift kit but free.
Please don't curse me even tho I deserve it.
