One other thing. Might be a longshot tho. Make sure you hold firm on the brake pedal and make sure the rear brakes are adjusted up. They might not be holding the rear axles enough. Kinda like putting it in gear wothout applying brakes at at all. Idle speed of the motor is a factor also. Just food for thought..... ohwell

The Tranny reverted to all Neutrals! I just spent 4 hours wrangling the old one out. The "new" tranny slipped into place just like it belonged in there.
However, I did find that the exhaust system is cobbled together and leaks at nearly every seam. I'll be re-cobbling it back together so that I can see if this heap will pass the smog tests.

I like the snow pix. I have several different vehicles that ended up coated in white that I took pictures of. Something about that snow!

BTW. My Uncle used to live in Loveland. I remember tubing down the Big Thompson as a kid with my Cousins.

Nice Blazer!
