so I started looking at shifters, I am probably going to get the North West Fab tripple stick reverse cable shifters. They make w nice kit, and I can hardly even buy cables for the price they quoted me.
This got me looking at shiftrts for the trans and... now I want a reverse pattrn manual valve body..
I guess this can be done with the trans in the truck but, I can always do it when I liven up the motor too... Perhaps I need a rolling, driving chassis first...
Here is my thought line. A manual valve body would be nice since might not always want to start in first with all the gearing I have, 7:1 with both cases in low, plus the 700r4 has a lower 1st gear. Faster, firmer shifts. More controll. And its just cool.
Autos are nice for dune crusing, and might be nice for racing.
This thought kinda makes me wish I stuck with the 4l60e where I could run it both ways... But, I wanted to be rid of the computer...
