Recently I had a rebuilt motor put into my 72 302 Convertible. After the install, I noticed that the FMX transmission was not acting correct. It seems like it is staying in 1st far too long some times (but not always); Usually from a cold start. The second (and far more irritating) thing is, it is ‘draging’ between 2nd and 3rd (the best example I can think of is, if you had an manual shift and you verrry slowing let out the clutch between 2nd and 3rd) This happens most (if not all) of the time. Manually shifting responds quickly and seemingly correctly, however- since I can’t ‘force’ 3rd gear (D), I can’t bypass the 2nd-to-3rd lag.

Any idea what is going on and what I should do?
