Thanks again Dave. I agree that a large filter with a sediment bowl is the way to go.

Thanks Ray. It almost certainly is the original transmission based on the original condition of the car and what I know about the original owner. But the tag is missing - I can even see the little...

Suspicious mind

I got the seals and installed them. They work fine and I no longer leave a trail like a slug!

When I checked Rock Auto it seemed that the size of the Pittman arm seal was describing the sector...

This is interesting - I have AC, the pump with the filter and an inline filter by the carb. I think I would rather have a single fuel line running from the pump to the carb. Do you experienced guys...

Fixed?

Is it fixed Wolfgang? If so, can you share what the problem was? If not, have you checked the operating pressures?

Think of the way the shifting works. A road speed governor/oil pump increases...

What is my transmission called?

Can someone please tell me the proper name of my transmission? Is it called a Cruise-o-matic medium case? Would a wrecker recognize that name? There are some wreckers who sell old transmissions...

Generator light

It sounds like you have narrowed the problem to the generator not charging, but you should be aware that a charging light can come on for reasons other than poor or no generator output. That light...

Drain holes blockage

Make sure to check any drip holes in your doors and rockers to make sure they are not plugged with the rustproofing compound. I worked many years at dealerships and we often saw pooling in doors...

Seal and bearing numbers

Does anyone know a source of bearing and seal numbers? For example, I am resealing my steering box and I just need the steering shaft and steering arm seals. The shaft seal has no number on it, and I...

Agreed Dave. It will be good to go through the entire transmission including bands. Everyone focusses so much on the engine, e.g. oil changes every 5000, and can overlook the precise hydraulic...

Reverse!

Just sealed it up and filled it with type F. Seems to work fine with no strange noises or smells. And I have reverse! I even booted it in reverse to see if it would hold. If it is going to break I...

Too late?

Sorry Dave, I am afraid I can't do that! I read your post too late. I had a friend come over and weld the band. My welding is inconsistent, especially under a car. I was already planning on getting a...

Broken band

After removing the valve body and rear servo, I discovered the problem. The rear band is partially broken. I am thinking it is flexing enough when the servo is applied to not hold the carrier.
I am...

Transmission

By the way John, I read an earlier thread you posted and did check the modulator. I pumped a vacuum gauge on it and it held. I replaced the hose to be safe. It was in reverse under load when it went,...

Survivor Guilt

Thanks John and Dave.
I have an option to buy - probably about $2000. It should be an easy decision, but a few things complicate it. Earlier this year I bought a beater 58 Chev Panel. I put a lot of...
