hey, i got a little problem
now im not the biggest mechanic in the world, but normally i can fix my own stuff
recently i started work on a 91 bronco, fullsized (get them bronco 2s outta here), its running a 351 windsor, and its bored out 40 over, new stronger tire rods/axles, new transmission & clutch (it started as an auto, but a friend of mine swapped it to a standard)
now heres the problem, i dont know the tranny thats in there, but it feels like 1st gears almost gone
i was told by the person who gave it to me (wife told him to get rid of it, wanted it at a good friends house) that it has a racing clutch and tranny in it from around the same year mustang, and i really dont know where to look for a rebuild kit or atleast just 1st gear
also, ive shaved alot of weight off of this beast, and believe me its pretty fast, but it feels as if it doesnt want to be kept at speeds under 45, it will not ride smoothly or shift smooth until im doing about 60. although i have built basically a race bronco now (i still gotta hook the bottles back up), i want to be able to drive normally with it...anything i can do about this?
Having driven race cars in my past life I know what your talking about.
If an engine is tuned properly for a special purpose (racing) the cam will be designed to perform at higher rpms. Thus before or after the preferred rpm range the engine will run like crap. But with a bad tranny I would fix that first before you judge the performance of the engine.
1 change at a time.
Find a used tranny if you can.That's a tough one over the internet cuz of the modifications. Good luck it sound fun. You may have to pick. Everyday use or not.
