Default P0740 code fixed...hopefully.

Trans was rebuilt last week. Dropped TCC lockup a couple times on the way back to Va. Was headed back to the shop on Wednesday and lost all gears just before I reached the top of a long steep grade. Seems that the tranny cooler was clogged. Parts replaced, new cooler and all seems well. At 250,000 miles I'm not complaining. The shift kit is wicked.

After class, I drove to the Chevy/Buick dealer a friend of mine works at to have my Bonneville'* suspension & windshield washer fluid reservoir looked at. The suspension was fine, just old and the shocks mushy. Turns out the issue wasn't the suspension, but rather the subframe bolts --- some were rusted and needed immediate attention, so I won't see Bridget again until later this week. Oh, I also have to get a new fluid reservoir at some point soon.

Finished coating the inside of my truck bed with some skid resistance floor paint, the other day. Half way done with my top end rebuild on my truck. Now, I just need to pull the radiator so I can pull the cam out.
