TH350 for the time being. Once I get back from my vacation I'm going on the hunt for a 4L80E. The one I was going to buy fell through.

Really? How’s that work? I just put a new modulator in last year. You think the diaphragm is busted and it’s sucking oil up in there?

Could have, or that plug has left over grunge from old one.
Not always the culprit, the intake gasket can fail on 1 cylinder, but I would expect #6 to be grungey as well.
Easy to check anyway, the trans modulator.

Can’t hurt anything. I did notice all the intake runners were coated in black stuff. Wasn’t exactly expecting that. Who knows. This engine is a ticking time bomb.

Turns out this trans came out of a 4wd so should be all good to go there. Just need to save up for a rebuild and converter for it and a new input for the NP208.

So glad it arrived so fast. I wonder if when they told me they were out, it was because they had allotted the last one to you already, since I ordered it the day before. However, I was talking to the guy who entered the order, so you would think he would know. Either way, I am so glad you can finish your shortlbock. Hopefully you have the timing set now too, it shows delivered. Now if we could only get your heads that fast...

About 2.5hrs away. Not far in texas terms but far enough that it's cheaper to ship the stuff down to him than drive it. The cam//lifters//timing chain was $20 to ship it. The rotating assembly I had my parents take down to him when they visited because he's about 10 minutes from their house.
