Put my engine head in for work will see it in the new year, porting and higher compression new flat face valves etc, the porting guy does work for people in america, supposed to be real good, thats a craftsman.


Torque converter makes noises like rattly pipes, sounded like ot could have been an engine bottom end problem but the mechanics stethescope pins it down to the torque converter, rattles when front of car is higher or reversing and braking.

Time to upgrade to something stronger and more suited to power, no high stall wanted here.

Moral : Got a problem, throw $$$$$$$ at it !

Just got a quick assessment from the auto trans specialist. first listen by him seems to indicate a busted vane in the torque converter.

Still going on the 7th of Nov
