Hi I am Daniel you have several dealers in the area or are you wanting to avoid their high prices?
It is best to talk to the local automotive parts store in the area. They will usually know shop and owner by name.
It wont take a alot to get your truck running good. I can give procedures for throttle postion sensor and more.

any tranny shop can take care of you better than a deisel shop
regular shops dont have much tranny knowledge
But tranny shops have alot of shop knowledge
CAUTION: Before attempting to test the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) , verify the linkage adjustment dimension shown in the figure above. This dimension MUST be 126.5 mm (5.0 inches) BEFORE testing. For linkage adjustment procedures, refer to Throttle Linkage Adjustment.
CAUTION: Before testing the TPS, verify that the engine is set at correct low idle speed. Refer to Idle Speed Adjustment. This can be found in the Fuel Delivery and Air Induction system adjustments section.
After confirming the correct linkage adjustment and idle speed, proceed to the following:Throttle Position Sensor Location
Attach a paper clip into the center terminal of the TPS electrical connector. Do not remove the connector from the TPS for this test. Attach the positive lead of a voltmeter to this paper clip and the negative lead to a good ground. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Do not start engine. The voltage at the TPS center terminal should be 1.0 volt (+/- 0.2 volt) with linkage at idle position. The voltage at the wide open throttle position should be 3.5 volts (+/- 0.4 volts) . If voltage is not correct, proceed to adjusting linkage.Throttle Lever Linkage Adjustment
The linkage rod connecting the throttle lever to the fuel injection pump lever is adjustable. To prevent damage to the ends of linkage, attach locking-type pliers to the flat located on the linkage rod before loosening locknuts. Loosen the right-hand-threaded nut. Loosen the left-hand-threaded nut. Slowly rotate the flat on the linkage rod (lengthen or shorten) to achieve 1.0 volt (+/- 0.2 volts) on the voltmeter with the linkage in the idle position. With the throttle in the wide open position, voltage should be 3.5 volts (+/- 0.4 volts) . Do NOT lengthen or shorten the linkage rod more than 1 mm from the dimension shown. If voltage requirements cannot be met by linkage adjustment (125.6 to 127.6 mm) , replace the TPS. Tighten both nuts after adjustment. With the engine OFF, operate the throttle from accelerator pedal and check for throttle lever action and binding. Be sure throttle lever stop is against the low idle speed screw after throttle is released. Be sure of wide open throttle (WOT) when accelerator pedal is pressed to the floor. This is checked by observing throttle lever breakover position. Proceed to the following:Key OFF and engine OFF for this test. Two people are needed for this test. From inside of the vehicle, press the accelerator pedal about half-way to the floor. Movement of both the throttle lever and throttle lever-to-injection pump lever linkage rod should be observed. Continue to press the accelerator pedal to the floor. If throttle lever breakover is operating correctly, the throttle lever-to-injection pump lever linkage rod should have stopped moving while the throttle lever continues to move towards the rear of vehicle.Again, check and verify low idle speed. Adjust if necessary.
the tranny shop can do this and if not show them procedure I have given
The more I think about you popping out of gear the more this may be the ticket
your engine moves a 77 passenger school us effortlessly
I am pro allison for sure but they have issues also. But not as much. and liked about 75 percent more than stock
I was pulling a boat out of the water
and of course its time to do parking brake and let clutch out and get rpms up.
But with allison you walk right out of there. you can put it in 1st and not die as it will pullthrough parking brake and you just release it
I didnt even hardly touch the pedal
with 135 miles youy have alot of life left and a allison may be the way to go as there may be a need for a tranny if throttle postioning doesnt work
and you did right asking neighbor but get into a couple of auto parts shops also. and ask if you can use their name as a reference
I help people find shops all the time.
and thats the best direction to give right there.
Not if you find used or salvaged.
That is awsome
follow up with me even after accept.
no additional accept needed.
and you are very welcome
Clicking on Accept helps me as I have helped you with expertise time and resources. I have no problem helping later or even talking to shops. or looking for trannys after accept
