last night I made the maiden voyage out of the garage with my new bert(first time I've ever used something other than a powerglide)..It went forward in low and high and also into reverse...the question I have it normal to get a "little" grind out of it when you're in nuetral and shifting to low or reverse...The clutch was released..each time I shifted I gave the levers a firm and quick movement but felt and heard some grinding, just wondering if it is normal or not..low to direct worked good..its just the nuetral to low or reverse..thanks

I have a bert yes it does do that I just shut it off when changing from first to reverse or reverse to first is easier on it

We dont run a bert, but we run a falcon. Basicly the same type of tranny, and ours does grind a little when you put it in low, or reverse. After you run it for a while the clutches will loosen up and it wont grind as bad. But with straight cut gears you will almost always grind them.

I run a Bert, When the idle is a little high it will grind a little bit. Its been doing it for 3 years now without causing a problem. Change the tranny oil every 2 weeks. Mine has a bit of color but the clutches are still orginal.
