Wanting to install new 350 crate motor and new trans in 1955 210 sedan. Looking at overdrive trans. Which to use? Having car rewired at same time so wiring either should not be an issue.
I'm not going to run a lock-up on mine. My tranny guy says you don't need it unless you want a little better gas mileage on longer trips.and a 2004r will use the stock drive shaft. Others will need cutting.
I don't have a lock-up on mine, it was built that way by the tranny guy. No issues.
We had the lockup deleted on our 200-4R also, but if I had it to do over again, I would keep it and just use a manual control switch for out on the highway. We have a 10 " 2400+- stall convertor, which is great for streetability and cruisin', but on the highway, in overdrive, and running less that 2400 rpm, I'm concerned on a long trip there might be an awful lot of heat going into the fluid. If we ever have occasion to pull the trans, I'll have the lock-up put back in. Of course that will require a torque convertor change, as this one is set up for no-lockup.I'm not going to run a lock-up on mine.
