    Had Sherrie out for a little drive on Friday. She wasn't going into the depths of winter storage last week as I had planned, so A little corner carving session happened.
    Spring swap was absolutely what it needed.
    5 miles from home, pulling out of a simple traffic light.. tranny held first too long, stuck between 1st and second...then banged into gear after we got rolling.
    SO..
    Spring will have trans rebuild on the calendar. AWESOME.!!!!

    change the fluid first and see what happens. Might just be some dirt in the valve body making things stick. could also be the tv cable is gummy and hanging at high pressure.

    Did all of that when I got the car. Total flush new filter, etc. etc. My friend down the street has a transmission shop. They did it.
    the 1-2 shift has been soft for a while...
    I have a hankerin' for a floor shifter too... but I haven't seen one that hits my switch.
    My other car has a Hurst Pro-Matic 2 that I absolutely love.. but they are 3 speed shifters. HHhmm..

    Damn it you just made me think about floor shifters and now i kinda want one. Reckon that would require a different shift lever on the trans? Mine is still being built so i could change it...

    On a side note, our trannies only have 3 gear positions so would it matter?
