Are these junk yard trannys or have they been built by a shop?

Kenny what are you running for a cooling system on this tranny and what are you running for fluid in the tranny.

WELL I'M THINKING THAT MIGHT BE A PROBLEM. I AM RUNNING A TRANS COOLER AND IT IS MOUNTED ON THE CAGE IN THE CAR. AND I AM RUNNING REGULAR FLUID I THINK DEX MEX OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

As long as you want to run in high (1 to 1) why not go to a lighter, less hp loss Powerglide?

Is it shifting at all?

Or does it stay locked in 3rd gear all the time.

We have had a couple of guys around here that ran TH-350's from the junkyard. They were actually shifting down into second in the corners.....needless to say they rarely lasted more than a couple of nights if they were lucky.
