I was recently informed of this site by another member named LittleHoov. I was answering a question he had at another forum and talked about bonnevilles. He PMed me about this site. Although that was some time ago, I am glad I have finally had a chance to come here and really scope it out. It looks like I may really get some answers to the questions I have about my car.
I do not know a whole lot about GM vehicles. I know mostly about old dodge musclecars and ford trucks, but little about any GM. I have done pretty good in the time I have had my car and the similar one I had before it, but there are some things that happen you can't fix without the right info
My flexplate cracked. I wouldn't believe this to be as big a deal as it has become, but with what I know about other apllications, transmission type matters. I do not have the factory transmission. It is not even a 3 spd, it has OD. Also 4 distinguishable detents felt through the shift lever on the column, all which still keep you in drive. There are not even locations for that many postions, which is fine for me, but it gives me an excuse to not let other people drive it
So, can anybody give some help on how to ID my trans, where to look, etc? Can't look anywhere on the car itself, not the original trans. Does it really matter in this application? Once I find out about the trans I know it should be smooth sailing since many things that bolt up to the 350d bolt up to the gasser also. Flexplate, I would think, would be included, no?
Thanks for your help!
