Hi Roger, I really hope you can make Carlisle this year, even if your car is not completely finished.

The club has gone totally electronic. An all internet based club. I post updates via the EVBC mailing list to keep members informed.

So if your on the list, you should be getting the bi-monthly updates.

The Weather here has been good enough lately to melt all the snow and evaporate all the puddles so I could take the Barracuda for a nice long ride.

Cruising on the highway at 75 mph, one hand on the wheel, the sun shining and the tunes blasting.

Man, I needed that! Bring On Spring!

Hey Roger, does this mean the transmission leak has been repaired?

I started my Barracuda up a couple of weeks ago, but just backed it into the driveway. It was still too wet for a cruise.

I took the Marshmallow out for a spin on Sunday. I agree with Roger regarding the sun shining and the tunes playing! For the first time ever, someone behind me at a traffic light snapped a picture on their cell phone.

No,Don not yet. I just make short trips and keep an eye on the fluid level. The leaking issue coming home from Carlisle has not cropped back up, but I do have a second 904 on the bench, in pieces, performing a rebuild. All new seals, clutches, etc.

I plan to swap the rebuild unit next month and make any adjustments this spring.

My 1st Torqueflite overhaul is in the books as a success. The TransGo shift kit works well firming up the 1-2 and 2-3 shifts. No overlap between shifts and not a harsh shift.

I also have changed a few engine gaskets, distributor o ring and for the first time my car does not leak a drop of any fluid. No more cardboard on the garage floor!

No leaks! That's quite an accomplishment and the trans kit too! Which level of the kit did you use?

Congrats Boss! On your 1st Torqueflite overhaul...

Now since your cuda don't leak, replace the "cardboard" (yuk) with nice "carpet"... So, you can fall asleep like I do when working on the cuda!

I used the Trans Go SK-TFSC Kit. From their website.

Corrects: Converter slip-shudder. Leaks out vent or lever. Front bushing and seal burnup.
Drainback Complaint.
Soft, mushy 1-2 shift. Extended 2-3 shift.


I could not be happier as I just wanted it to shift better and that it does.

And as for sleeping under the car, that's why creepers have pillows!

Is leaking a common thing for everyone?

Well in my case it was. Some repairs were done with bubble gum and bailing wire in the past just to get the car rolling. Making the trip to Carlisle last year was a real shakedown for all systems and to identify any issues.

I went back and replaced engine gaskets where there was rtv sealant, same for the differential cover.

"Is leaking a common thing for everyone?"

I changed the pan gasket on my transmission more than a few times and it still didn't stop leaking, but it seems to have stopped itself somehow. I also have a small leak in my main engine seal, but again nothing major, just good to check the fluid levels once in a while.

Would you happen to know what the rims you have are called Daprez. I've seen em on a good few cudas and I'm really starting to like them.

They are your basic "Aluminum Slot" rims. They were made by the Ansen Automotive company and later by American Racing Wheels. When I was in High School,(I'm going to date myself now) your choices for cool rims were the Keystone Classic, Cragar S/S or Aluminum Slots.
