Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer working afternoon till just after midnight.

Slipping results in the rpms rising fast and high but speed not increasing equally to the rpm. Is that what is occurring?

Is your trans pan square with the 2 rear corners angled off or is it rectangle with one rear corner missing?

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am contacting you because the post has not been closed out/completed.
  • It appears you were not pleased with my help.
  • If more assistance is needed, reply and let me know, also let me know what it is you're needing to be pleased.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I never know it.)
  • You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, and I do not want you to leave having paid for something that did not meet your wants/needs and myself not receiving a feedback selection from yourself.

Thanks Chris
