"WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO YOUR TRUCK NOW?"

*The most brilliant question I think anyone can ask in any chat thread anywhere....

God knows why I never thought to put it so blasted SIMPLY!!!





~All day I've been looking to get rid of a roofer and crew so that I can order some parts.

WE'RE DONE!

So now I can spend the money they made me....

And I can forget the house so that I can completely focus on stuffing a 351W (5.8L) into my Ranger 1/4 ton....

Now I'm back at it....

*I do like small vehicles that can do outrageous things....

Let this whole thread read like a running statement of: "Well - since you asked, here is what the 'ell I did about that..."

Well, I have a slipping C4 and a tired, pinging 302 clevo in mine and I top them up with oil and water respectively.

....until I can build a 383(ish) with a procharger and a bulletproof C4 :P then the 31's will get FRIED!!!

Have you looked to find if there is a "BAND ADJUSTMENT" that you can do?

Many trannies are adjustable in the older machines unless the clutch material on the transmission internals are completely gone out....

The bands themselves on older trannies were expected to have SOME amount of wear - so they were made adjustable.

If you have one like that, expect to find the adjuster inside the pan - LOOK IT UP before doing ANYTHING.

Try the transmission and driveline forum for details!

What year is the truck?

she's a 74 but has a motor/box from a 78 fairlane.

I've wound the modulator almost all the way in but it's just tired. It's no biggie though... Have a couple of FMXs and several C4's to chuck in if it stops giving me drive
