      You going to hook up a vacuum gauge so you can verify vacuum at WOT?

        I'd be interested in stopping in NOLA before the tour starts.

                        Bob, as experienced as you are yo-yoing transmissions, what do you think about slamming that 700R4 in the 58 real quick? shop's open and the trans is in the back in case I ain't home.
                        Maybe I can clear this up.....I thought the cop was a prostitute.

                          took trans to shop, they disassembled
                          few lightly burnt clutches
                          no big problems, problem may in valve body
                          going to try to install larger cooler while waiting for trans
