I don't know the automatic side of things very well, just what I have read and talked to other people about. Are you always this defensive about other people's choices and responses?? I did post my thoughts intentionally to get feedback but I see you took it the wrong way.

I'm sure Brett wants to see an argument.  Kevin thought I was an asshole too, so that's nothing new.

Before this goes somewhere....maybe you should re-read the recent posts. Maybe I'm wrong but, I thought he was just stating he needs the trans controller as he wants a 4l80e. Sorry for the butt-in, continue on.

Spot on Todd.  I'm sure I mentioned the trans choice somewhere, but maybe not in this thread; if that's the case my bad, I've talked to so many people about it lately I can't remember where it's mentioned or not.

If that's the standard for being a smartass, I'll be the most hated person in the group in no time.

How's the Camaro project coming, or has this thread turned into a bitch session?

Mikes abrasive, that's just how it is. Attitude and emotion do not always transfer to this media and we all know it, grow a thicker skin and move on fellas.

Good luck with it, seems you have solid choices.

Got off work early today so Lee(co-worker with a '73 Charger SE black/black, 440ci/727TF) and I decided to go check out the new classic car junkyard of Rollins' called Dick's U-Pull-It on HWY 7($2 entrance fee, cash only).  I quickly realized I needed to go get some cash....

 

I was able to get: (not pictured) rear center spoiler in bright yellow!!, driver side door latch (pictured) both hood hinges which are very tight, a tilt steering column with key, manual cable driver side mirror and a '79-'81 Trans Am 8.5" rearend with disc brakes, 3.42 gears and a posi(both confirmed).  Gotta hear from Craig if he has a core 7.5" rear laying around I can take in to get a core charge back.

I know, the name is pretty funny. It had the front page of the News Tribune Local(I think it was) last weekend. Craig has an S10 rear I'll go grab that's 5 mins away but thank you for the offer Mike.

Some older stuff there like a '50 Chevy pickup, a '59 Dodge pickup, an early 50s Ford car in good shape, lots of Camaros(my count was 10-12) and some Trans Ams, GM stuff in general....El Caminos(2 x '67s, at least a '68, '71, '72) a couple Vegas and of course G bodies.

George has been asking me about a road test....drove it halfway to Katie's parents' house, then she got in the driver seat and drove the rest of the way(about a 10 minute drive total 1 way). Just had dinner, about to drive back home since it just stopped raining.

Took the 8.5" rear's cover off and checked backlash, it measured .011", just outside the specs. I may be able to use these gears if I can get that down a little...maybe I'll do a little shim work before total disassembly and see what I end up with for a pattern and measurement.

I can't seem to get used to this fruity place called Seattle.

Fruity???  I'm not from Seattle, never will be.

 

Discovered why there's a new in box ignition switch that came with the car upon trying to return home...had to jiggle the wires to the old one to engage the starter. Thinking it may need a new dash harness(for gauges instead of warning lights) too depending how it all looks...45 year old spring tension on the ignition switch wire connector ends probably needs retiring. No dash lights except the GEN light staying on....wonder if the alternator is bad.

The high speed on the wipers needs attention too...not working. She LOVES driving the car, I let her drive back.
