    Keep at it Paul, I think we have suffered these sort of setbacks that’s Hot Rodding for ya. Once it’s sorted the memories of all the problems with disappear and your face will be aching with the massive grin that will be permanently on it.

    its been a while since I posted on here, we didn't get the car to the supers in the end, same for quite a lot of people, never mind, apart from the thunder road cars meet and a couple of trips up the goat (a local pub meet) its been banished to the naughty corner of the garage, parked in a puddle of gearbox oil
    so a couple of phone calls yesterday and a big cardboard box arrived today with a super overhaul gearbox kit in it, guess where i'll be between xmas and new year
    cheers

    Hi Paul. Did you sort the vibration? If not you might have the wrong flex plate.
    Real steel

    so the spannermonkey and I pulled the box today, was a bit of a squeeze but we got it out, found the oil leak, it is the drain plug in the converter, the thread is buggered, so hopefully we just gonna get it welded up, while the box is out were gonna get it overhauled and we can replace the leaky rear main oil seal on the engine
    more soon
    cheers

    Don't forget the flex plate paul. That could be your vibration problem.

    been doing a bit of research on the flexplate, I can find only 2 types for a stock 383, seems like the one I have is right, maybe I need a new one. been looking into the leaky rear main too, that don't look like a nice job, cheers guys
    more soon
