Sorry, but I haven't seen it in the years I've been here (has it been

normal.

Crew cabs were called 6 packs because, you could fit 6 loggers and a few 6
packs inside. Hope this clears this up.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - manual gear box lube

Bas van der Veer,

I was thinking all the same things about the Chilton author -- too funny!
The box has the gray grease all around the gears and the box. I've never
seen any tube labeled "steering gear grease" either! Yeah, I know what the
whole oil and water thing looks like. This isn't it though, good thought.
I'm going to do what you suggested and clean the whole box out over the
weekend and put in new gear oil. Thanks for the help.

To FTE in general:

Complicating this though is that I've been getting a chatter in my steering
wheel sometimes. Usually I notice it when I'm just taking up the play in the
steering or barely steering around a gentle bend in the road. I hope this
isn't bad news. Any ideas?

From: "George W. Selby, III"
Subject: FTE 61-79 - RE: Stall speed

Stall speed is the maximum speed the engine can go without spinning the
output shaft of the transmission. The classic method of testing (holding
the brake and gas at the same time and seeing what rpm it is) reveals low
numbers, as the brakes cannot usually hold the engine torque at the stall
speed (the rears spin, and the front holds the car still. The stall speed
varies according the torque output of the engine, the more torque, the
higher the stall speed. So the exact same torque converter could have a
stall speed of 1500 rpm behind a mild 302, and 3000 rpm behind a built 460.
Higher stall speeds equal more heat for the tranny. So any labeled stall
speed on a torque converter is merely an educated guess, and may vary
considerably. The best bet is to talk to a professional at one of the
major Torque converter remans or a tranny shop, and get their
recommendation.

Hope this helps a little.
