I think that's an indication of pump pressure being low. Could be other things too I suppose like a sticking solenoid valve or something. Might be a good time to pull her out and have it freshened this winter.

Craig Watson knows some good tranny guys there in that area that have done good work for him that are reasonable. I'm not sure who it is, maybe he will see this and post their info.

Leaking internal seals in the tranny can cause the car to move like that when engaging the transbrake.

Bradco did my Powerglide and my converter and he's top notch. He's in Louisville.

I've also used Arnett's in Greenville, KY and they are great as well. They built me a killer TH350 for $1100. Had lots of trick parts in it. Give Thomas Arnett a call at 270-338-6325.

Brad can be reached at 502-955-6639.

Those are the only two places that I'll let touch a tranny for me.
