Re: C4 shift slowly getting firmer
I was running a 3000 hi stall till I blew my last C10 changing from 1st to 2nd. I had to drain some fluid because I over-filled the trans a bit, so I disconnected one of the hoses way at the back near the cooler to test the pressure, then turned the car on and let the fluid shoot into an icecream container. The fluid came out quite fast, so the extra distance to the rear of the car doesn't appear to be placing too much pressure on the pump.
After I've been driving the car for a while, when I stop - I can place my hand on the radiator and it can be quite warm, so it appears to be transferring the heat OK.
The only downside is that sometimes when I'm cruising and it's cold outside, my front thermo wont turn on, because the cold air flow is sufficent, but this means that the rear thermo mounted on the aircon radiator (alias trans cooler) doesn't turn on, so the cooler can be a bit warm when I stop, because it doesn't get mush airflow tucked up underneath where the fuel tank used to be. This is the main reason why I dropped my stage 1 solinoid switch down from 60C to 50C.
