i have been away from h.a.m.b. for a while, my computer died and i lost all my passwords, etc.. my question: i have a 63 olds super 88 holiday 4dr h/t. it has the 394 ci engine with hi-compression heads and the motor runs great. it had been parked for 25+ years according to the guy i got it from and someone had drained all the fluieds. i bought and installed a new auto tranny filter and gasket and put 10 quarts of tranny fluid in it. ran the engine for 10 or 15 minutes shifting from low - second - drive and reverse trying to get some fluid moving around but nothing happened, no movement. a friend says that i should tow the car around a bit going through the gears -- and get the fluid pumping? another guy says to "pressurize" the tranny to get fluid moving up into the seals/bands. i haven't tried towing or pressurizing yet. any advice? also, if the auto tranny is toast, does anyone know where i can get a 3sp manual tranny and clutch/linkages? thanks a lot for any help.
