    I apologize if I sound dumb, but I have a 2000 GMC 1500 4.8L RWD and my transmission is now starting to slip. I'm assuming it's from the lean that I have but i'm looking forward into getting a stage 2 4L65E. If I get the stage 2 can I still have my truck leaning because as of right now the truck...

    I got a 62 nova with a 2 speed power glide and it has a reverse button but I’m not to sure if I am doing it correct. I start out in park, hold the button, put it into reverse while holding the button, then give it some gas but it just doesn’t move. Any advice? Please and thank you!

    I have a '70 that I put a 383 into, new flex plate and TC. Removed my old TH350, bought a freshly rebuilt one, and put it in this weekend. I now have a loud, consistent knocking coming from the upper section of the bellhousing that wasn't there before. Sounds loudest right where the engine meets...

    Morning Everyone! I have been looking for a TKO-600 for quite a while for my 72. I have mainly been saving to get a new one since used ones are so hard to come by but low and behold one of my search alerts went off and one popped up for sale. The main issue is that it is 5.5 hours away so I...

    Hello, I have an LS2 that I will be mating to a B.W. Super T10. My initial plan was to use a conversion flywheel that is 0.400" deeper. However I believe my crank is beyond repair from a spun rod bearing. Sooo… could I get a 1999-2000 LQ4 crankshaft (6.0 truck/suburban engine) that is 0.400"...

    I have been driving my little convertible around since 1994 enjoying the "three on the tree". The tranny was overhauled in 1997 and has about 3000 miles since then. What caused me to even question this was that this past month I had the engine rebuilt (first time it has been opened since 1962)...
