I need a tranny question answered. I did a 4 speed to th350 swap 2 months ago. I had the th350 rebuilt by a local shop, and installed a new HD torque converter. When I installed the tranny I did not have the proper kick down cable bracket and so I did not install the kick down cable. I figured I would get to it sooner or later, and besides so what if it doesn't shift down when I mash it (that's all a kick down cable does right?) Tranny shifted fine and everything worked great. Over the next two months I put under 200 miles on the truck. Then one night it clunked when I shifted from park. When I got home and shifted into park it never made it past neutral. I checked the linkage and everything I could think off, but the tranny was DEAD. I towed it back to the shop and left it there for a week before they could look at it. They called yesterday and said it was my fault, because I didn't install the kick down cable, I broke the tranny. This sounds like total BS to me. I have to pick up the truck today (and pay them) and I am wondering what all you experts out there think. Is this possibly because of a kickdown cable not being installed or am I getting jerked around. PLEASE HELP ASAP!! <font color="red"> </font color> So here is the update: I picked up the truck last night and the owner was gone, but the guy who was there told me in HORRIBLE English (if you move to America and open a business, god bless... but LEARN THE F"N LANGUAGE) that everything was fixed, except that for some reason it shifted to quick. He checked the vacuum pressure and all relevant parts and it must be because of my big tires. Sounds fishy to me. Shifted fine before it broke. What ever I just need my truck ask. As I pull out of the parking lot onto the main street I notice right away how much more torque the truck has, and the shifting is solid. Like it has a shift kit. But it shifts through the gears in like three seconds. Hmmm. and the final 1:1 gear 3 seems way low. At 25 miles an hour I am in third begging to shift up, and there is allot of noise. Crap! I drive home and try and figure out how my final drive gear could be sooo different from what it was. It's like I have a new rear end. I did some research on adjusting the shift points and figured out you can adjust the vacuum pressure, or change the weights and springs to adjust the shift point. Sigh more work. But that still does not explain the final drive gearing. Some of you have probably figured this out already, but I am scratching my head. I take it for one more drive, and listen to every noise and feel every shift (and man does it shift now, like the truck want to lift the nose every time I shift). Eureka! I stop the truck, look at the transfer case lever, and it has been in 4x4 low the whole time . ahahahhahah. Put it in 2 high and everything works like it should. But now I miss the firm shifts. Guess it's time for a shift kit /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I never found out exactly what was wrong with the tranny, I will call today, but all seems right now. Just a shame that my 4 speed to auto conversion is now close to $1000, and that includes trading in my 4 speed. Nothing is as easy as it seems.
