    Ive used trans parts on 50th and division. Seem to have some pretty sharp folks working there. I rebuilt my own and just went there for parts mostly but they gave me good tips and how too's while i was there.

    thanks. i'll check them out. or maybe you can help since you re built your own. I've got a 700r4 that won't shift higher than third and is shifting at what seems to be really high rpms. i think that might be why i can't get inot 4th. oh, and i'm in raleigh hills. off scholls ferry. you?

    I've used Sam's Transmission in Salem, but that might be a little hike for you. Sam's great though!

    nathan - unless you swapped again without me, we just put a th350 in your truck, thus you should only have 3 gears. i don't know why it would shift high tho. i wonder, however, if your perception of shifting at high rpms would be because of how loud the 6.2 is - switching from the noise of a toyota corolla to a 6.2 is a helluva difference.

    i don't know if you'll get many replies in this thread regarding virginia, since the title of the thread refers to oregon, so you might want to try posting up a whole new thread. that being said, what's your tranny and what's your trouble?

    OH YA! I forgot about mudhog's dad! my bad dude. but yea if it is a th350 then you would have only three gears...And if it wasnt valve bodied/goverend for a diesel than it could be shifting high thinking that its behind a smallblock or somthing as they use higher shift points than a diesel

    Im in SE around 122nd and powell (5 min off 205 from powell exit)

    big kennye - i can't yahoo you. feel free to post up with your questions/situation, tho you might have more luck with getting more responses if you start your own thread.

    y5mgisi - i'm pretty sure this was a diesel transmission - it's not the stock one, but it's the one that was in the truck when he bought it (though, that's not really much of a good indication of quality based on other things we've fixed on it. ;) ) any other ideas on the high rpm shift?
