    T350, T400, powerglide, 727 torqueflight, C4 etc....

    I doubt that it really what make or model it is, but in my powerglide I change it at the beginning of the race season whether it needs it or not.

    I change at re-build time, so far about once a season.
    No matter where you go, there you are.

    I'm hard as heck on a transbrake so I change mine after every 30 passes. I ignored mine( ops: ) for about 2 months late last year and fried it. The oil looked like burnt grease when I pulled the pan. Needless to say I had to have trans and converter freshened.

    Hey rabbit, sounds like u need a bigger cooler or two of them, heat is the enemy, get rid of the heat & the trans will live, just ask Earl. :shock: :lol:
