1st Gen Transmission Issues...AGAIN

Recommended Posts

That makes the repair simpler Ben from what little I know.

Sounds like Mike would be the preferred choice to get that old beauty shifting at her best,,esspecially 

if he did the tranny work on the truck before.

For those that are interested...

I’m gonna go with a new valve body assembly and a shift kit as it looks like something I can do without removing the thing from the truck.

BUT...if I do end up pulling it then I may as well go through the entire thing.  All if that sludge had to come from somewhere right?

I might change that converter out if I can find one that will continue giving me the mpg’s I want...but that is going to depend a lot on how much it will cost me..


I did a TPS bypass many years ago after replacing it for the 3rd time so I already control when it shifts into OD (a hair over 35mph).

Who’s got the best deals on the parts?
