Hey. excuse my utter lack of knowledge but maybe someonecan help... my buddy has an 84 c20(I think, it was converted to an eight lug, so i guess its a c10) short bed and hes got a prob w/ the auto. trans. The truck feels like the trans is slipping when it goes forward, but not reverse. So he figured it was the clutchlates or pressureplates or frictionplates or whatever, and he rebuilt the trans, and put in a manual throttle body. (it already had a shift kit or something)The problem: when he took the trans apart, the plates were so new and in tact that he could still read the numbers stamped on them. he put the ebuild kit in anyway and put the truck back together with a new torque converter in case that was the problem (since he was left clueless with the ok plates) and it still has the same roblem as before he rebuilt it. it just doesn have the bang whe it shifts that a turbo 400 trans should. please any ideas let me know. hes pretty frustrated, as you may well know from first hand, a trans rebuild is not a fun easy or quick task and to make itworse it is still broken!
