    Thank you for the input!

    I did switch over to the passenger’s side tank on the dash switch. I think that’s my real world test?

    I’d say it defaults to the driver’s side tank, but I’m not sure.

    My next step is to test power in and power out at the new switch.

    If the switch tests fine for voltage/power in and out, then I’ll be testing power at the valve near the tanks to see if it gets power.

    I took her on a run to stretch her legs yesterday and she seemed to come unhinged at the throw out bearing.

    Realizing the 396 never came with the SM465 mated to it, I think the TO bearing was the wrong one, or just clapped out.

    What are the pros and cons of swapping in an overdrive automatic, like the 700r4 vs researching the proper TO bearing replacement?
