|jimfulco||My friend's '75 truck (350, 2bbl, pegleg) has no spring in the 1-2 accumulator. It blew out and we couldn't get it back in. At light throttle, the shift is firm, but not obnoxious. At medium throttle and above, it's kinda harsh and will chirp the tire no problem. I'd use one if possible.|

Intermediate (1-2) Accumulator Spring - in or out? shift quality?
I'm on the final steps of finishing the rebuild on my th350. Reading through my rebuild book, it says many Hot Rodders leave out the 1-2 accumulator return spring, which will cause more abrupt shifts? Is this something I would want or should do...I put in a transgo shift kit that just fixes the softer shifts(not the hard shifting performance kit)
BTW when I pulled the trans apart the spring's top was busted off-about 2 coils...So I went to local trans shop to replace it, he only had a purpleish one, and the original was redish. I think one is for a six cylinder engine and the other is for a 8?? Will that be ok?
Spring in or out? How will that effect the 1-2 shift? Also, if purple spring is for a 6 - is that a stiffer or softer spring?(Book says stronger spring causes softer shift)
Thanks a ton
