    When shifting into drive my TH350 has a loud pop to it. It doesn't make this sound shifting into reverse and it only makes this sound initially. After going into gear it drives and shifts fine. planning on just driving it till it breaks if I can't fix it easy, just kinda funny when someone gets in and I put it in gear. They all say WTF! But OH WELL!

    New Ujoints, idles at 700-800rpms, sounds like it comes from near the front of the tranny but who knows. Kinda hard to shift it into gear with my head under the thang(lol). thanks for the suggestion.

    When you say you want the idle around 800 rpms is that in gear or out?
