Post Transmission slips on curves and turns only?

72 nova, 350, no positraction, just a peg on the rear axle.

I can feel it slip but only on turns and curves when accelerating.

could it be the differential or the tranny?

What kind of transmission does it have?????????
If it's a th350 it could be excessive governor endplay.
I would assume you would check the fluid first thing so i left that out.

check your speed if dash shows your moving faster in corner you have slip in rear end or tires , but if you hear higher rpm and no increase in speed your trans is slipping, I'll say your transmission is slipping fluid level would be first thought, might be loose filter only 2 small bolts to hold fiter on small gasket too, some time wrong dipstick to your fill tube will show incorrect fluid level( shows full, when it's low)

If it is actually the trans slipping, I would have to believe it is in the fluid level or pickup. The torque comverter would show up during hard acceleration from a stop going straight. Make sure of the correct fluid level. If the level is correct, it could be a loose filter or, I have seen filters installed without the gasket. Since the filter is made of either thin sheet metal or plastic, it is east to get a poor seal without a gasket. This would permit poor fluid pickup when the level drops only about 1/2 ".
