Hey Pat,

This is a followup on my C-6 2nd gear slippage. We checked the line pressure tonight. If you recall, I have a reverse-manual valve body in this thing without the vacuum mod. hooked up. You said the pressure should read in the 160-190 range. It read the normal 75-100 at idle. It also fluctuated up to around 125 if we reved up the engine a bit to say 2grand. I thought this was odd, as did my buddy who rebuilt it. We started looking through our manual to look at the second gear band piston, when we came across a picture of the vacuum modulator being installed. He pointed to the VACUUM CONTROL ROD that is inserted into the valve and that the vacuum modulator goes over and says," Mike, I am SURE I did not install that piece. It was not there when I removed it." Now he is a MOPAR mechanic, and a damn good one. This being his first C-6, I can understand not knowing it should be there. Do you think this is the problem? Without this rod, my tranny won't have full pressure, correct? It would be as if the modulator had full vacuum all the time, correct?

I need one, you don't happen to have a spare do ya ? <G> hehe.

We checked the shifter linkage and it was dead on correct. I HOPE that we have found the trouble.

Mike,
Sorry about the delay....I was out last night..*G*

You may well have found your problem.....get thee to your local transmission rebuilder and tell them the sad story....they've got a ton of that kind of stuff laying around...

Alas, since all my C6's are disassembled and at my mom's house, I have no idea where a tiny piece like that would be....I might have one off a C-4 out in the shop...will look this morning but don't know for sure they're the same...

Pat
