    Funny that.

    I drove my 69 chevelle for years with the converter not wired up and no problems. (700 R4)

    I wonder what made the difference?

    The constant pressure valve body in Pat's trans was probably the big difference between his and yours and why his converter did this. They tend to get hot at higher rpm's and flatten the fins in the converter and become inefficient.

    That's great to hear it didn't hurt the trans. A lot of times the converter bearings come apart and get in the trans and reak havoc on the fluid etc.

    Could be; I'm just glad I didn't have to go through a complete rebuild again. It'll be nice to get it back on the road next spring.

    Trans is back in and I got my seats back from the upholstery guy and installed. Also took my speedometer out and shipped it off to get repaired. Iíve got several little things to fix over the winter; itíll be great to have a lot of the bugs worked out.

    Thanks! Just ordered a new Quick Fuel carb to replace the old rebuilt Holley, too.

    Those seats look awesome! Mike's right, the entire interior looks great! Do you want to do a 40 Ford this winter?

    Got my brakes done; I made new brackets for the calipers and put on new rotors. Hopefully that will fix the problem; everything seems to line up better. Also put on a new QuickFuel carb and got my speedometer back from the repair shop.

    Nice beefy discs, they should slow you down nicely and just in time with the new carb in!
