    I think I can feel the bucking in 1st, and maybe even on very light throttle in some scenarios in 3rd. Was going to check the spark plug wire...

    Does the AOD have such one way clutches for 3rd and OD? From my learning of the AOD, those gears are direct drive. Would direct drive gears still...

    First test drive is completed! TV pressure was set accordingly, to right about 35psi with the gauge block installed. Resulted in pretty mushy and...

    The rod is long enough to bottom out the trans at WOT, but it doesn't pull back enough at closed throttle. The travel / geometry is skewed and I know...
