I will be the first to eat my shoe...but only if I can find some hot sauce. Nice job. I still don't think the bus is built to run down the freeway at 80 mph.

A bus ain't built to be lived on, either

So after I drive this bus across the country late November, without blowing up either transmission I say natster, and crazy cal, have to printout the negative all knowing things they wrote, and take a video of themselves eating that piece of paper and post a link for it to this thread. If you have any honor and decency you will, for the sake of humor and goodwill, eat your words on video. If I blow it, I will do the same ;)

I mean, you are Jesus, right?

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.

@crazycal, I think he was just being funny man, no offense, really, I've looked at your conversion, you did a great job,and you clearly know a lot about this stuff. and if I blow my tranny, I WILL eat my own words, because that's the sort of guy I am. I have a 6231a brownie box that I got as a package deal with the 6231c that I installed. It had a gear with a damaged tooth though... If anyone was desperate and wanted it I could ship it to ya. Look up the gear ratios etc. and see if it's what you want I showed the damage to a tranny guy and he thinks the tooth was an imperfection from the factory because there is zero wear or damage to the opposing gear etc. still if I were going to run it I would get that gear re-machined.
