c6 trans won't go into gear.
This trans has a Hughes trans rebuild kit and a 3800 stall converter.The first weekend it worked perfectly at the track.The next time out it was working good the first day,then after the third pass when you'd put it in gear it wouldn't engage until you revd it up to 2000 r.p.m. then it would engage properly in first gear.when you were putting it in reverse it woud do the same except it would sort of slip into gear but would work perfectly once it would engage.I raced the car the rest of the week end like that and the car ran very consistent and strong.When I drained the oil out there was a little sludge in the pan,nothing out of the ordinary for green clutch's just a light amount on the bottom of the pan.I did how ever find a few aluminum slivers as well.Could the converter be the problem and where the slivers came from?
You want to race for cheap? Drive a chev. If you want to win? Drive a FORD!
