    Ok gentlemen this is on a 1971 C20

    its a Turbo 400, and when I put it in reverse it takes up to ten seconds to "drop" into gear. Sometimes if I give it a little gas its quicker about it. This was my grandfathers pickup and it has 43000 original miles on it. Dad said its done it since before I was born(1984).

    My guess is it needs a tranny flush, filter and some fresh ATF and maybe some of that lucas stuff.

    What do you guys think?

    Sounds like a good place to start and while you are under there for the money and age of the unit I would throw on a new vacuum modulator.
