Update

Well I finally got the tranny adjusted up and road tested her....wow all the work paid off she runs like a whole new beast! Only thing I noticed at idle after getting hot and running awhile she wanted to stall. I am guessing with it at idle and the extreme heat the fuel maybe vaporizing. Any ideas on how to get the eng compart a little cooler. Not that I plan on letting her idle for long periods of time. Also I adjusted the tranny per Lokar instruction and with the little block on the cable at the throttle I set it to about 33-34psi. At this setting she shifted good put a tad early and the passin gear took a bit to to kick in. Now if I set the press closer to 32-33 how would it change the shifting? Thx again for all the help guys!!!!

Also would it be out of the norm to run a gauge to the tranny permanently to keep an eye on the pressure??
