Put 6 miles on the trans, sounds good, pulls very good, but need to adjust the TV cable, it shifts into 3rd around 25mph, after letting it go through the gears 9-10 times I put a little fuel to her after O/D hit......the fun stopped when I popped a cooler boot....at 42psi :shock:

may need to take it easy or turn the fuel down a little....not in the mood for a HG change right now.

driving to work in the morning, will update after having it hooked to the camper this weekend.


thanks for your help Philip.....you are a good man.

I am getting close to the first filter and fluid change, I am going to adjust it a little when i have the pan off, it is doing fine, the shift points are still a little off but over all it is nice, I havent noticed any MPG gain which sucks but maybe when we get out of the crapy winter fuel blend it will help.
