|jvsapp||if you put in type F fluid it will shift harder. and it will still work ok. dexton/mercon 2 makes the shifts smoother.|

Thanks for the replies,
I installed the tranny on Saturday and so far it seems to be o.k. It was used, it was in my 68 nova when I bought it. I know, someone installed the long tail shaft tranny and cut the driveshaft!! The kid told me it has a shift kit and by the looks of it, it seems to have the plate in it like the one in a Transpak kit. but it doesn't really shift that hard. It's been sitting for a few years and I installed new front and rear seals, filter and threw in some $2 conditioner. Wish me luck.

It will work OK as long as you don't plan on pulling a trailer that often. You should feel the engine rev up a little more before it starts to move during more aggressive throttle input. But driving slow with light throttle, it should feel like a stock converter. You will lose about 1 or 2 mpg with the high stall converter.
I have a TCI 2000 rpm stall in my 70 C10, 454, TH400, 3.08 gear, 28 in tall tires, 4000lbs, and when pulling a 3000 lb trailer it will stall at 2800 rpm! I'm sure the 454 has an effect of the higher stall, but you see would I mean.
I recently bought a 1500 rpm stall Hughes towing converter to try and re-gain some mpg and allow towing without excessive transmission heat. But I haven't had the time to pull the transmission to install it.

|Frisco||Since you have the converter; I'd say put it in. It is not that much increase in stall over the stock converter, so don't expect any major changes.|

2100 stall in truck
The TH350C is going out of my truck and I plan to install a regular Th350.
Will a 2100 stall converter work well behind a mild 350, 212/222 @ .050 435/460 lift, headers, 600 holley, aluminum intake (just standard stuff) and 3.08 gears with 28 inch tires? 4000lb truck.
I already have the converter and trans cooler just wondering if I should put them in or not.
