Sup HotRod,, Im really glad i found this great site.. Ive got a yard full of squares,, from 73-86.. I just went through my t350 in my 78 4x4 shorty,, frame up build,, to many thing to list.. the t350 works as expected,, when cold,, but after it warms up? after running down the run a bit and full internal temp? it shifts really soft,, it dont slip,, at least that i can tell anyway,, but it just dont feel crispy 1-2 2-3 like it does when its cooler like when just just got the motor warmed up and ready to go.. it shifts to soon also,, gotta work on the Governor weights and springs.. it has the red stripe modulator,, gave the screw a half a twist in and raised the shift a lil bit,, but no ware near were it should be....... down shifts ok also but way to low,, anything over 55mph and nada,, so i have like i said governor work to do.. im not to happy about only having 3 forward gears with 3.73 in the front and back,,dana44 front 12 bolt gm rear,, 3k @ 70mph is,, well im sure ya get my drift,, really wanting to stuff a 700r4 in it if i have to go through the work pulling the t350 down for inspection..... Its all in front of a np205,, so i need to eat my weaties before i go pull it.. I remember something about about the front plate in front of the valve body,, cant remember the name of it,, might not be perfectly flat/warped and leaking... Im wondering what ya think about this,, im not set up for the 700r4 YET,, ive got 2 of them,,one is 2x and the other is a 4x, both have been gone through and out of running trucks,,pretty pink fluid.. the 4x is, at least the stamp date says 82.. the 2x is an 85,, that is the one im gonna use for parts for the 4x build,, im figuring it would be more up to date,, both out of diesel trucks.... So? im fingering, if i gotta pull the t350,, i might as well just stuff a 700r4 in it for all the work i gotta do.. but i want to get the t350 up to par till i have all i need to do a transplant.. got any idea's about soft shifts? and no it dont SLIDE to the next gear,, closer to factory shifts,, but when cold it will bark the tires..... thanks in advance!!
