just a though

Try VanDevere Olds ask for Dal Slaubaugh Even though it wasn't convienant for me to pay shipping form this dealer, calling them allowed me to get a Firm discounted baseline price, So I could call other High Volume GM parts Dealers and shop price......... To my suprise my local Dealer was about 10% higher than they were


I actually bought one through a Freind that was a GM parts manager I got the smokin Employing discount

here's their website http://www.oldsmobileparts.com/

Thanks for the info. So far I'm going to try the rebuild, just waiting for the books to arrive. I notice while disassembling that all of the springs were missing. 1-2 and 3-4, along with the servo return spring. Why would they not be used? Is there an advantage for not having them in?

a buddy of mine blocks the accumulators off with check balls in the respective holes.
he removes cushion spring for servo also.
I don't know ,but it should make the shifts super firm all the time.
A transmission expert will explain it better.....

please...recommend a tranny shop

Eliminating accumulators, by removing springs and shimming accumulator pistons, effectively removes the absorption during shifts. Thus producing an almost always undesirable 'feel' as the transmission changes gears.

Barking tires and thumpy shifts are cool and all that but, not all of the time,plus it is not so healthy for the trans.

If you want a nice shifting transmission buy a transgo shift kit,they have different kits for varying degrees of anticipated performance for your trans.

They use,what I call, a cerebral approach to calibrating transmissions.
