Got the 350 trans in and almost all hooked back up. Waiting on my lokar flexible dipstick and the torque converter bolts. But she’s back up and running.

I haven’t dug into it yet. I’ve never been into a automatic before. So watching some YouTube videos so I can Atleast have an idea what I’m up against

My credo
built, not bought
I tore down a bad 700r4 from a S10 blazer once just to see what all was in there. The last time I tried to move it there was some serious slippage, I was going across the yard at the time and thought it was sinking into the ground and spinning tires, went to check on how much I had tore up the yard but there was nothing, was all just transmission slippage. When I took it apart the oil smelled really bad and some clutch plates were really bad. Supposedly this trans had been rebuilt by Amco just a few years before.

Got the trans swap all buttoned up today. So far so good. Trucks not tagged so can’t take it far. But couple trips around the block. And she’s feeling good
