Shifts great! I no longer have to worry of it popping out of first! LOL Very Happy

Gotta retrain myself too..I don't have to hold first gear anymore and it takes off a lot faster!

Thanks! It was nerve racking at first, but I got the hang of it by the time I hit the freeway.

Yup lost power and died. Something ignition related as we found the ignition coil pinched. The 2 auto stores had nothing and Dewey had to get back to work. So for now it's waiting patiently (like Ocho has a choice) for us to return this afternoon. Dewey will order the parts thru his work and we hope that when we change the condenser and points that it will kick over. If not AAA again............

Thanks. It was nice to hear Ocho crank over. PO put in a generic coil and who knows how old that was.

BTW Sac freeway service is awesome. He past me , went up the freeway turned around and came back. By that time Dewey was under the hood changing things out. He waited to see if it would crank over and when he didn't he said He would tow me to the next exit free of charge. Thankfully the next exit was my work exit and he dropped me off at Kragen parking lot.
