Default Trans FINALLY died

Well, that didn't take too long

Flushed it 3 weeks ago just to see if I can get it to last until tax time, and aside from 1-2 and 2-2 upshifts slipping, it did ok, esp. under medium throttle and manual shifting. Yesterday it finally decided to loose first gear and now uses 2nd as it'* new "first", even when manually selected.

So now she'* parked until, well, I get some free fundage again. Gonna take a while to recover from Christmas ya know

Oh, and yeah...I did get that trans case that I mentioned in another post, but was somewhat dissapointed with it. Gonna have to clean it up a bit more before I want to use it as my new trans foundation.

It was expected with the purchase of said car. I think what I am going to end up doing is locating a good used one and swap that in for the interum, and use what is in there now for a core rebuild that I am going to do. As stated before, I already have a cleaned case (though it could use some casting flash cleanup inside) but no matter the course I take it will have to be done soon.

And it would be nice if I could ever find the time to help you...

Brad...be careful on casting flash cleanup. Do the homework and make sure others do it.

My Pops likes to tell a story about Ford sending trans'* to like Mercedes or someone and Mercedes didn't like the flash...cleaned it up...Trans won't work w/o flash....
