I am having a heck of a time with a 2400 stall converter its stall the car one time them works fine the next. Will low transmission fluid give this problem or have I just got a piece of crap for a converter?

As I said in the first post the thing will stall when put in gear or at stop lights,stop signs and such also it will get hot if I keep the rpm's up high Enif to keep it running and hold the brake. I have bumped it in neutral to drive it a little but any town driving is out and I need the front end lined up tow set and ect. It seems worse when hot but will run on down the road and shift right as long I don't have to stop.

THANKS OLDROD

Sounds more like a timing or carb issue at this point.

I watched it on the dino carb,timing all good around 450hp roller 347 stroker it will go from a to b fine and even idle in gear in the shop most of the time it just does this stalling crap at red lights stop signs ect as I said before it will run like a bat out of hell BUT this stalling is the pits. It will run all the gas out in a straight line just don't idle.I have a friend with the same problem with a 302 w/C-4 and 2400 stall converter. I was wondering if the stall was to low like maby I needed a 2800-3200 .

Finally got the thing on a rack so I could see the new mufflers and pipes and the boy had done a bang up job except the pipes are to close to the transmission mission cooler and lines or at lest I THINK SO will this cause the kind of problem i am having? The cooler is the under car kind seen on a lot of street rods as there an't room for one in the radiator or at lest no one I talked to made one for the 37 WILDROD.Any one had this kind of problem with the cooler under the car? Oh it seems worse in reverse

thanks OLDROD
