    Trip to the muffler shop!

    I will have my car done tonight Lovin it. Well thats it Gents. The car will be finished tonight. I just have to put the seal on the pass side door, I have to change the power steering pump and install a new wiper motor...Im done!

    Funny story. I took it for a little ride around the block to check how it runs..It took aff really slow in 1st gear...seemed to roll on for a long time...anyways i could not get it into 2nd gear for the life of me...I never forced it or jammed it, but i thought it was wierd, I though my tranny is done needs work.....So i thought well...Just go real slow & try 2nd...so i did....The car jumped up in RPMS felt like i hit the brakes and im like WTF????? THATS 1ST GEAR!!!!!!...I went home and checked the linkages...yah the little rectangular plates that hook the linkages to the tranny were upside down....lol...No wonder...1st was 2nd gear, 2nd was 1st and 3rd was 4th and 4th was 3rd...Problem solved...Tried it again and OOOOO YAHHH!!! She pulls hard now..shifts great im really happy. heres some pics.
