Accumulator.? There is one in there it is the correct name if that's what you want to replace.
There is also a govenor/accumulator solenoid that is problematic and there is a GM upgrade available if you want to go that route.
Do a search for trans solenoid upgrade and you should be able to find it.

These are NOT typos the purpose of tightening down in the first place is to "center" the band on the hub. If you DON"T back them off you will have BIG problems.
My bad...reading error...I was "seeing" back off locking nut, for some reason. Glad I said something...I would have f'ed up that.

You mentioned "GM up-grade"...we are talking Dodge here right? I read that as General Motors...

But yes I want to replace the accumlator while I have the pan down. I'm sure it (if that has to do with holding the 2nd shift) a problem. 28mph and you can mat the throttle and it stays in 2nd...any kind of heavy foot below that will make it drop back into 1st.
