    This morning I got the completely rebuilt 305 back in my 81 1/2 ton truck. I'm just excited and had to tell someone! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif BTW, how much ATF do I need to put in the tranny?

    Cool, I stabbed mine in three...
    Get a case of ATF, just fill the converter all the way. After you put it in and the dipstick is in, fill it up to the full level and run it through the gears. RE-check, and fill to the full line. I'd say about 8-10 quarts will be needed.
