ok, i have my 80e sitting in my garage but i dont have all the other stuff i need yet to tackle the install. in the meantime my 60e is doin pretty shitty my 2nd gear is completely gone:flame:. starting from a dead stop goin easy on the gas it will wind 1st out till 30mph at the least because its tryin to get 2nd but there is no 2nd anymore:supergay: then at about 4000rpm it will just go to 3rd. or if i go till about 20 then let off the gas for a sec that will go to 3rd a little quicker. my question is what can i do to get a little more life out of it till i get my 80e in? just somethin to keep it goin cuz its gettin worse and worse by the day...

If you lost second, you probably have a leaky servo or a pin that's not applied properly. I have not seen anyone smoke the 2-4 band yet.

Would you like me to get a pic of one?? I believe time-before-last when my trans was gone through, the band was pretty much cooked.

Well that's the first I heard of one. :D Usually it's the direct (3-4) back that craps or something internally breaks.
