My house smells like a drag strip but I have 3rd gear! The people that tried to help me on a mission from hell: I really appreciate all the help that was given. The previous clutch turbo is a stall piece again. I can't believe how many plugs I removed and at last the plug that was removed that should have been there!!!!!!! That last one I found by reading Ron Session's Turbo 400 book!. I read this book at least 5 times to find this. I am beyond ecstatic. One little thing causes the biggest headache.

What's funny is the 3rd gear shift were the inermediate clutch is engaged and reverse band is not egaged. The plug in the interemediate clutch was gone. When I applied preasure it hosed me in the chest! That was the turning point! Found the port and plugged it as factory and holy cow it is the way it should be! One Shirt ruined one brain saved Shocked

That engine really wants to be spun hard. Sounds like the last dirt late-model that I had. Sent shivers down my spine when I heard you start taching it up. Geez man don't give me the fever.. I can't afford it.

When you put that baby to the floor the first time, hang on. It sounds like you might get a hell of a ride.
