After all of that time waiting for my engine to be rebuilt, now I have to pull the transmission out - AGAIN - and have it gone through. The RPM jumped WAY up when I shifted into third earlier today, then things settled down when I let off the throttle. I figured maybe it was a fluke, but it wasn't. I went to drive it again today and it made a horribly loud whining/grinding type of sound after if shifted into third (and this was under very little throttle). I am guessing that the converter has failed, which is irritating, since it is supposed to be a heavy duty max blah, blah, blah. I truly wish there was a local builder who actually knew what they were doing and could build a reliable product.
