All by myself I installed and fitted a 1962 auxiliary transmission successfully without anyone's help. The sheer physical challenge of getting the transmission into position without proper tools deserves congratulations. I am incredibly proud of what I have accomplished.
Don't pat yourself too hard on the back
. There is a lot of stuff that you need to know in order for you to have done this right. However, with the way the internet is today, I hope you found it. I mentioned torque converter, make sure you lower the stall and get a temp gauge on the fluid. Your trans won't last long if you lug it below stall speed. Second is driveline angles. Read up on this, because it means all the difference in u-joint life. Not only are maximum angles, and angle between joints important, but you don't want the joint completely flat either otherwise it won't lubricate properly.
I see you fount out that you can shift on the fly without putting it in neutral. It's similar in the way the big rigs shift without using the clutch. Letting out of the throttle will momentarily take all the load off the driveline, allowing you to shift out of direct and into OD. Time it right and it works. Too fast or slow and your grinding gears.
I'm completely jealous that you found a brownie box
. I can't seem to find one, so I'm working on a deal for an OD trans instead. Good luck, and when confused, ask questions.
