Went ahead and ordered the transmission pan. I decided to go with a stamped steel pan, to allow me to put more $ towards other parts of the truck.

Anyone had experience with Headman longtubes on the 302? Will they fit an 89 F150 (2WD)? GT40Ps? A buddy of mine has a set he'll basically give me if they'll fit.

Also, I decided against working on the underside of the truck (installing the VB) this weekend. On Friday I'm having an "operation" on my forehead (I'll only have a threehead after this) so I want to make sure it stays clean and what not. It's okay. It'll just force me to concentrate more on getting everything under the hood done this weekend.

Well, I'm trying not to be disappointed. The VB came in yesterday, and not only is there corrosion on one corner, but I don't see anywhere to adjust my WOT shift point (which is listed standard on the SPT-1). One screw on the side, but it looks like a set screw to me. I took a bunch of pictures and e-mailed them to Dan last night, no response as of yet. We'll see what he says. He's got nothing but good reviews, so I'm sure everything will work out one way or the other. Here's the corrosion:


It came packed very well, with a new 2-3 accumulator, gaskets, and a filter. The VB was in a big zip lock as well, so I'm not 100% sure where this corrosion even came from...

Edit: Found the instructions for the WOTS (shift point at WOT adjustment) system. They were in with the packing slip, the VB does have it, so I'm happy. Just need to clean the corrosion off.

Heard back from the guy, turns out it's not corrosion, it's paint from the assembly plat to identify which VB went where. That would explain why it was being such a PITA to clean off, lol.
