View Full Version : Burlington show?

06-05-2007, 08:40 PM
Hey guys, are we still on for the car show tomorrow?

06-05-2007, 11:55 PM
I'll be there ron along with my buddy in his 84 hurst olds but i won't be bringin the TC.
I tried puttin in the Lentech AOD tonight and after getting her fired up and filled i now have a major front transmission seal leak so the trans has to come out once again so that i can replace the seal and find out what the hell happened to the original one as it was supposed to be new.
I'm rather upset about it and have absoloutley no time until next tuesday night(employee shop time night)to work on it so she's out of commission for at least a week.
I will however be bringing the SC to the show tommorow after i shine her up a bit,kinda the benifit of having two cars,not sure if alex is coming??
See ya there.

06-06-2007, 01:04 AM
OK cool. I will be there around 6-6:15pm

I know this is a really stupid question, are you sure you had the torque converter fully seated? I did that once and destroyed a perfectly good SC tranny :(

06-06-2007, 07:46 AM
Yea it was seated but for some reason the convertor has to come out about half an inch to contact the flexplate and i don't know why.
However i tried installing washers behind the convertor bolts and pushed the convertor all the way back,still leaked just as bad.
Not sure if i wrecked the seal because of that,if there's a tear in the seal now or if it's the wrong seal alll together.
Gonna get a new seal and test fit it on the convertor before it goes on the trans just to make sure.
I had the car upto 120 on the hoist in 3rd gear so i know the trans shifts and there where no strange noises so i'm sure all is well with the trans,probably just a bad seal(i'm hoping).

06-06-2007, 08:54 AM
I"ll probably be there too provided i don't have to work late.

06-06-2007, 09:55 AM
hope you get it sorted out man. I hate tranny problems. My '85 was plagued by them. Damn tranny lines wouldn't stop leaking, no matter what I did.

06-06-2007, 11:57 AM
Hey guys, where is this place again?

06-06-2007, 12:03 PM

06-06-2007, 12:56 PM

06-06-2007, 09:30 PM

Still having problems with the TC damn front pump won't quit leaking at the 2 bottom bolts.
Not sure if i'm gonna make it next week,i'll keep ya posted.

06-08-2007, 03:39 PM
haha thats ok dude, no problems.
ended up racing one of the stangs down the QEW when I left. shocked the hell out of him when we stayed side by side. LOL. damn bogging issue happened again during the race though, so I probably could have beat him. lol.

06-08-2007, 10:11 PM
Hey ron you takin my ponies next week???

06-08-2007, 10:17 PM
yeah, so I will have to show up in the Exploder, and not the bird. Can you bring them to the show?

06-11-2007, 03:58 PM
Yea i'll bring them with me.
Gonna try and finish the TC tommorow night,hopefully no more leaks and then i'll bring her on wednesday.

06-13-2007, 08:41 AM
You guy's comin tonight???
Ron you can still bring the bird and take the pony's home,there all in new clean garbage bags and all fit in my backseat as that's how i'm bringin them tonight.
Will be bringin the TC tonight,had to put the old trans back in,i think the convertor sleeve is cracked(have to have it tested).
Ron did ya get the other vent in the front??

06-13-2007, 08:51 AM
I don't know if i can make it tonight.. but we'll see as the day progresses.

06-13-2007, 12:00 PM
OK I may bring the bird then, we'll see. got a buddy that wants to bring his '72 Ford F250 truck to it, told him I would ride with him.

That sucks about the tranny man. Hope you get it sorted out soon.

I haven't really done a whole lot lately, been too damn hot. starting to get back to work on the TC/cowl hood that I have been making. once that is finished it will go on the bird then I will put another scoop in the drivers side fender and paint the bird. put my catted h pipe back on the bird and fixed some slight leaks in the system to quiet the interior down abit. Just readjusted the fuel pressure, as somehow it backed off to 33psi, (think I forgot to tighten the lock nut) so I bumped it back up to 38 and seems to run better. I figured out the sputtering problem, so lets see that stang try taking me this week, :evilgrin: LOL

hope you can make it alex, but how bout washing the cat before you show up this time, huh? nobody likes a dirty pussy..... cat. LOL
