I've been away for a while. I was really hoping to have a video or see a slip from your first single digit runs. How's the project going??

Well I have had a hell of a time with the Turbo 400. My dad built it 15 years ago for my Uncle. It had a clutch in place of the converter. There were passages plugged every where to redirect oiling. I finally found the problem of no 3rd gear by completely tearing it apart for the 4th time and found the reverse bleed on the center support was plugged. Had to drill out that one. Evil or Very Mad Anyway the heat has moved to you're area and I will get it put in this week and hopefully be able to finish the body this month so I can run the thing. Thanks Adam

Used to be a song Tenacious that is still bad $$s Surprised Haven't herd that word for a while and that is me bad to the bone Twisted Evil Can't let em beat you. Since I left the company I worked for they have called me 3 times to bail them out. I went 1 time and they bitched about the bill. They called Wednesday again and I was way to busy to bail them Evil or Very Mad They will learn (mabey). Best thing I did was go self employed one more time!
Way off topic but the car will see the track!!!!

i assume its the one for TH400. i know the TH350 book is good.

there IS a certain pride that comes with staying with it until its fixed. i admire your efforts. i would have bailed a long time ago. i HATE trans work!

Got the book today and found a plug to the intermediate clutch pack gone.
I would have never noticed. Not the problem but will be later if not dealt with. For the 5th time I air checked the clutch packs and every one is good. I have a feeling the rear band is applying in 3rd gear and I have to find out why. The book set me in a direction I needed to go without chasing my tail Laughing

sounds like youre on the right track. since you have the book, if you think of a reason my TH400 kept chewing up the rearmost thrust washer let me know. that always bugged me.

Exactly which trust washer? I had a clue before but with the book I can look more intensely.
