    Ok guys... 77 power waggin 360... not sure the trans.. 3 speed auto (well 2 and a half speed.) Got a mean rattle at the trans pan under load at 3500 rpm... won't go into 3rd, and take a while to get going in the morning... I've had l it up a few respectable grades and truly believe this truck is worthy of some investment... I'm pulling the trans in about a month to have it rebuilt... does anybody know of common trans problems that I could avoid with better or even different parts since it's being rebuilt anyways?

    Maybe it was trying to identify itself as a motor and was killed in the process...

    I'm really confused, how can you compete for truck of the month with no final gear?

    Dead tranny is better than any other tranny.
