Quick Trans. Question before performing
Ok, I have read through the acticle in the TECH Section concerning the J-mod, and have read about 4 pages of misc. posts concerning the trans. updating, so I just want to make sure I'm not forgetting anything. I have the TC shudder and 1-2 shift problem that is going to be dealt with this weekend. I don't have the money to do the entire J-Mod yet, so this is the best I can do. I plan on adding a 24,000 GVW B&M Supercooler, changing the 1-2 accum. to the new one and installing ONLY the bottom spring, and changing the 2-3 accum. and leaving this spring completely out. Refill w/ Mercon V at a few quarts at a time (per directions), and see what I get. Is there anything that I forgot or could also do short of the complete J-mod? I plan on doing to 300hp mod and getting the 97 deep pan at a later date, but want to see if this trans holds up a while longer before I spend the money on it, instead of a Reinhart trans. Thanks guys.
These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.
