#1 Post by Bruce69Camaro » Fri Apr 13, 2012 7:26 am

When are you going to annouce your new build?

You know, the Camaro :thumb:

It's ok, your amoungst friends, you can come out of your closet and admit
that this is the best move that you have made.

We won't think any more or any less of you.

Go for it buddy, I'm here for you.

Oh, by the way, how did last weekend go for you?

Well, went through the water box, stood on the gas, it labored until the rpm's came up so I though hmmmmm thats not right.... I put it in the lights, hit the t-brake button and decked it, waited for the light, let go of the button and it left like grandma's car does on Sunday afternoon after church. I though it left in high gear, it didn't it WAS in low. Looked at the data and it looks like the converter didn't flash. The motor had a hard time getting up on the brake and when I let go of the button there was no flash, no rise in rpm, no acceleration, it just moved like a turd!!!!!!!!! At the right time I put it in high gear and it just went right to burnning up the trans. I could smell the burn fluid and after checking the fluid I'm positive it's toast!!!
Conclusion, the converter never stalled. The only thing it could be is it's locked up. It was time to go through the trans anyway.

Time for a mechanical diode instead of a sprag.
