OK well before i pulled the transmission I verified that it was still connected to both ends cause i had to disconnect it to pull it from truck. Whether or not it was within limits for rigging i do not know. But appeared to be in good shape. As for the transmission fluid it was black and stunk to the high hills. But it was only run hard for a manner of maybe 60 sec. to 1 min. Also you mentioned the governor( i believe this is located behind the 3 inch cover on the aft left of the tranny) you said to look at the gear and make sure its not broken. Which gear are you referring to? How do i tell if the governor is shot. Thanks for the help. Any more replys would be great. Also if transmission is cooked how can i tell by physically looking? Is this repairable? If i remove the governor is there anything particular to be careful of.
