77 Dodge-1st tow run-Questions on improvement
I just towed my rock crawler using my new 77 dodge w-200.It has 32x12.50 tires,4:10 gears,crate motor,Blue printed/balanced,
tow cam,alum. intake,carter 4bbl,headers,flow masters.It has no pulling power from 0 to 60mph.65mph on the interstate is not bad.Hit a hill,she drops to 40mph.QUESTION,Would a centrifical distributor help.The 727 torque convertor seems to drain down for 1 thing when it sits and it seemd to slam gears when it shifts to 3rd as if something is bound up.I am only towing a 3500# rig.My S-10 pulled 5000# no problem.I also want to go to P/S.I want to add P/S.What year box does it take?Any ifno appreciated,RR
