what is it and what is it good for? what are the benefits of having a manual valve body? thanks
I got a full manual (forward pattern) valve body on my T350 in the buggy. It stays in whichever gear you put the selector in. Put it in "D", it takes off in 3rd.... and so on...
Benefits are shifts when you want them and not when the tranny wants to give them to ya, and the ability to take off in 2nd or 3rd, even if cases may be in double low... or whatever.
Works good when you're trying to "bump" up on an obstacle.
turns a auto into a stick but without the clutch. you have to shift it manually.
the po did something wierd to the valve body in my trans. if you put it in drive it will shift normally but it wont downshift. then after that you have to shift it manually. i cant stand it. im going to be putting a normal valvebody in when i get the chance.
thats what i was thinking, but didn't know for sure.... thanks!
