    Ever rebuilt a 4l80e? Thinking I'll try changing out filter first. Driving down the road, 55 mph, cruise set, able to hear the steady drone of the...

    That sounds like a long time to warm up, I changed a thermostat because of that problem, but the $25 delco thermostat must have been swapped, because...

    Well, so far so good, after a couple weeks on the road. Only real incident I have had was pumping oil out the transmission dipstick. Got under it...

    I had better weld up a tool, we can't buy shit here, before the seals leak and ruin the new brake shoes. It hasn't been moved since that job.

    So the bearing sounds OK, just a slightly different depth. Do you have a special tool for the nut, I can't remember how I tightened mine. I had to...

    Take some tools with you, the difference may show up as a problem in a short distance.

    I'm a little concerned about the spindle nut. When I removed it there were about 5-6 threads showing and the snap ring was well seated. Now going...
