Ok got out the first time this year. Well when I hit the front straight about half way down 4000 rpms it shifted out of first into 2nd gear. I used this tranny last year and it never shifted out of first. When I came in after about 6 laps the tranny started over flowing out of the dipstick. Put some more oil back in went out and thing blew up. It would only get reverse.

I am not sure why it did this happened. But I will be putting another t350 in this Friday and donít want it to happen again. Any thoughts on this guys?

Well I have been trying forever to get mine to shift out of first without going to 6000 RPMs. I dont have any help for you but was wondering how yours was setup, vac hooked up or anthing like that?

You need to drop the valve body and replace the shift valve spring with a length of 3/8" copper tubing. I will get a diagram made up tonight so i can e mail it out

Well my kick down cable is removed and covered. As to my module itís capped also. It never did this last year just started when I went out the first time this year. I believe I blew the tranny when it shifted so be careful. It would go high rpm and shift hard then it stared slipping.

Powerglide what does that do? Will it help me with the shifting out of first? Because I did fine last year, just did it this year. If you have a diagram that will work for me I would appreciate it! Amcordova73@aol.com
