Im not sure what your asking about it do you mean if their is vacuum? Im not so sure that it would be the problem since I have accidently ran it before with the vacuum line unhooked before and the transmission worked. It didn't shift like it was supposed to, but I could put it in gear and it would move the truck.

Towing

Alright I haven't gotten a pressure gauge to check it yet, but I was thingking of something that hadnt occured to me til just now. I read in a thread not to long ago that if you tow a car and leave the driveshaft in place that it will spin the transmission and run it without the pump going if the engine is not running. Well, guess what, a month before I had to park the truck for a bad flywheel, I towed it like that, and again the day I parked it for the bad flywheel. Both of these times towing it was for a bad flywheel. It was when I had the transmission out to replace the flywheel when I put the shift kit in.
Do you guys think that towing it like that could have added to my situation? I was told by my dad that it was alright, and that he had done it several times before to other cars and didn't hurt the transmission in them.

I have had a split vacuum line to the modulator render the trans inoperable before.

How far did you tow the car?

Hmm well my vacuum line is hooked up and in good shape since I replace the rubber parts on it just a few weeks ago.
I towed it about 6-7 miles the first time and about 8-9 miles the second time. I just chained it up to the back of a truck and pulled it. I think the fastest it went while towing was about 35-40mph.
Thanks lonestar

I've towed them farther than that before with no problems. When you pulled the pan, did you check all the valve body bolts to be sure you torqued them properly when you installed the shift kit?

Yes, when I put the shift kit in I torqued them to what the instructions said. And I rechecked them when I pulled the pan and none of them were loose.

I think its dead

Well I still haven't checked the pressure readings, but Ive talked to a guy from a transmission shop and he told me it was likley burned up something and needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Well it got me thinking, I also have a b&M stall converter in it, and would any of yall think Its still good and worth reusing? I put it in when I put the engine and tranny in and both have about 4500 miles since they were both rebuilt.
Thanks
