shes been running for about 2 hours now,she runs @ 240 degrees,a little warm...but no leaks,no power loss,or smoke from the exhaust.i brought her upto 60 mph.i have to let off the gas for her to shift,but she went to 3rd....couldn't tell if od kicked in.the tranny whines in gear.i just shut her down....getting ready to check the oil for water mixing.
im thinking the clutch fan is bad,it turns easy by hand with little resistance.but my original problem of bogging while in gear is completely gone.she will smoke tires easily.
