Re: 700R4 or TF727 Trans swap with AMC 360
My 360 has the 10.2:1 dogleg heads, Edlebrock R4B Intake, performer cam, GM TBI, DUI ignition, runs real strong, but i only put maybe 300 miles on the trans. By TV cable I'm assuming thats the kickdown cable. I purchased the Lokar cable, and at full throttle it pulled the (TV?) lever on the side of the trans all the way, and at no throttle returned the lever as far back as it would go. From park to drive you could hit first and second, at different RPM's, depending on the throttle position, third was really rare and only at 5,000 RPMs. Once into second or third, it would not downshift back to second or first gear unless you went back to park then into drive again, or manually downshifted. Shifts were crisp from first to second. Last time i dorve it, same symptoms, but reverse no longer worked. Fluid levels were where they should be and i shut the Jeep off. I tried it later in the week after i let it set, fired it up and a trans line blew off.
