    First, I missed that you have a V10. Duh! You already have the low lash one way clutch. Line pressure can make it worse, but that's not the cause or the solution. I spent a bunch of time adjusting pressures trying to make it go away and I couldn't do it.

    It was cool working in the industry. I got to do a lot of things that I dreamed of as a kid. I went to the Baja 1000 one year as the Ford trans representative and rode with the chase team for the truck that won the race. I also was able to ride in a Trophy Truck during a tire test. I've been on the Nurburgring in Germany at 165 MPH, and I rode many laps around Virginia International Raceway in a ZR1 Corvette, also topping 165 MPH.

    It was fun while it lasted, and it lasted for 29 years!

    Yes, there is A LOT that is unique about the 2-3 shift. The cause of the thump is a one way clutch engaging on the shift. I spent a couple months working on that issue, but those above me wouldn't spend the money to fix it. You could rebuild the trans and use a one way clutch from a gas engine trans. Those had a higher dollar, low lash unit that REALLY lowered the amount of thumping that happens on the shift. It would not be covered on any warranty because there isn't anything wrong with the clutch you have, they all thump to some degree. The good news is that it doesn't affect the durability. They last just as long even when they thump.
