I made my first race with my brand new ps last night and i litterally pulled on the track and my tranny went out where you exit the track... on the first lap... during hot laps... first night out... i know the seal blew out on the oil pan on the trans and thats what made me lose drive. but i hope it is just the seal and i didnt mess up the whole tranny.  Undecided Undecided Undecided

yea the tranny just stopped pulling and it started smoking alot... so im hoping the trannys not messed up. i know the trans oil pan blew out the seal so im hoping it just lost the fluid and thats why it stopped pulling... i hope nothing inside the trans is messed up. but i took the pan off this morning (sun) and tried to find a gasket and a filter for the powerglide... advanced here in lumberton could order the gasket but could not order the filter... oreillys here in lumberton could order both but with the holiday on mon they couldnt get them till tues maybe wed... i have the cover off now and im anxious to see if the tranny will still pull once i put more tranny in it... so does anyone know where i can get a powerglide trans filter and gasket today??? or even mon morning??? thanks for all the help.

and crashtest... is that bill smiths old car???

o one more thing when your looking at the bottom of the tranny on the passenger side there is a circle that will come off it has 3 bolts around it and then one in the middle of it. what is that??? i think its leaking trans fluid also... can i buy a filter for that or do i have to build one?

If you are talking about the side and not the bottom that is the servo.  It has an O ring and a gasket.  I only know this because mine was leaking too.

the title is correct!!!  Embarrassed i changed the tranny pan gasket, the filter, the servo gasket and o ring... but still have something leaking i believe its either my fill tube or maybe the tranny could be cracked... but now i have got to drop the pan again and loose all the fluid again lol. when i started the car is when it started leaking real bad but it does leak steady even when car is off... but just to see if the car would still pull i put it in gear and the tranny did get into gear and the drive shaft was spinning but the car was not moving.......... this means i have something wrong with my rear end.... DANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i most likely wont be out there this fri...

This might be a shot in the dark but check you cooler lines.  My tranny was leaking real bad and all it was was the tranny cooler line was lose. 

Don't lose hope!  It just seems like what I have dealt with through this season you have dealt with in one week. 

I will be out of town for a couple of weeks but when I get back if you are still having trouble bring it by my house and we can go through it together.  My neighbor races SS and I am sure he will come by and help.

i think i have changed every gasket on this damn tranny and its still leaking... as far as the rear end we took off the cover and metal shavings dropped out... but only thing that was wrong that i can see is that the weld that we welded the spider gears to the carrier broke apart so i went to gary and i bought a mini spool so im going to put it in today and maybe thats all thats wrong with the rear end... hope so atleast... but as far as the tranny goes im bout to throw this one away and start over!!!
