Hi Ford lovers..how is ya
My 6 cyl AU auto is being a b**ch.
Do I need a new box if it is what I call flaring between gears. It revs as if the clutch is slipping in a manual, and takes for ever to pop into third from second. ould this just be a service issue such as the bands needing adjustment or am I thinking back to the 80's which is the last time I had and auto.
If I do need another box should I stay with the riginal or is there a box that someone recomends that isn't going to cost me more than 500 second hand

The major problem with doing that is that I have a crook back. I wear a morphine patch 27/7 for the pain. Makes life hard when I wanna do stuff like checking the fluid level in the box.
What ever happened to the good old dipstick. lol
I am pretty sure that the level is right though because there are no leaks from the box or from the front of the belhousing.
I will know for sure it is empty when I get back from NZ 2nd week of March though. Am going to try dropping the pan and doing a service on it.
Can get a service kit off Ebay for about $26
Am just trying for ideas before I go to the land of the long white sheep pushers. (sorry to all you K1W1's out there. habit for us Aussies. :P 2 weeks sailing around the little islands will be sooooo relaxing.
3 more sleeps till we head for the sheeps. yeehaaa Anyway keep poppin the ideas into my head. I will be trying anything you guys can hit me with to save the box from the rebuild box.
Would love to get one that can handle some horses if I need it though, hopig to put twin turbs on later this year with a 3200 stally. will make the world a happier place if the wife lets me. ROFLMTO (the t is for tits)
Later fordies. Keep all four on the ground. Unless you mean it.
