Yes, I drove it around the block several times after the kit was installed. The Tranny shifted like it was supposed to. I didn't drive it much as I was having problems with the engine that I have now worked out.
Thanks

trans

I am getting to the end of being any more help to you... Maybe crosley will jump in....

I guess i would drop the pan and make sure all the valve body bolts are tight according to the spec's..... I would also install the correct check balls required by the kit. I do know a very common problem with the b&m kits are getting the transfer plates out of order just double check that....

Maybe the lack of the balls was some body elses home made shift kit and by you adding the b&m deal it might have burnt something up???? Just a thought no real personal problems exactly like this to back it up.....

Thanks for your help keith, I don't think it could be the check balls, I could be wrong. But it did work those times I took it around the block. Each time I took it I drove about 2-3 miles, with several WOT blasts. And every time it shifted like it was supposed to, until I backed it up to drive it after a while and it stopped because of the fluid. Thanks again

Anybody else have any ideas that could be the problem? I pulled the pan and everything looks good and their is nothing I can figure it out. I havent put fluid back in it to try it yet as I don't want to waste more tranny fluid just to have to dump it to take the pan off again.

trans

Well as i see it you have 2 options at this point.

Yank the trans and pull it apart and find the problem....

Or go buy a 0-300psi gauge and hook it to the line pressure port and let us know what it is reading........

Yanking it out and taking it apart was what I was afraid you were gonna say. Ill try the gauge first. Which line is it that you are talking about? Are you talking about one of the cooler lines? Thanks keith I appreciate all of your help.

Gauge

No it's a port on the passinger side of the trans. It a 1/8" pipe tap. It's the one closest to the tail housing....

pressure

The trans needs to be full of fluid. The engine running.

There are a set of parameters for all the ranges of the transmission. I would guess that in park there will be little or no pressure and there really isn't any reason to go much past that if that is the case. If you have line pressure in park and it drops when you put it into gear than that is another story.

I don't have the pressures memorized. i will need to look them up in the book, plus most valve body kits raise the pressure anyway so i am not sure how accurate the book numbers are, But we will cross that bridge when we get there....

keep in mind i am not as good with transmissions as i am with engines, but i am trying to help... if someone else thinks i am leading him down the wrong path please speak up.......

Alright I will have to go buy a pressure gauge in the next day or so and check that out.
Keith I can't thank you enough for your help though, I really appreciate it.

opening a cooler line connection will tell you if the trany pump is functioning. Do this while the engine is running.

Cooler line pressure at idle is around 15 to 30 psi depending a few factors.

No flow or a trickle would indicate a problem with the pump

Crosley, Checking the pump was one of the first things I tried. I would say the pump is good, I don't know what the psi of it was but it was definitly more than a trickle. Thanks for your help though
