I wonder if anyone could help? I have a Chevy C10 fitted with a 350 engine & auto gearbox from what I believe was a '73 Camaro.
A few weeks ago on a trip having been running fine, I set off for home, and within a few miles it was refusing to change up...the only way I can describe it is that it feels as though it is trying to pull 40 tonnes of weight. I stopped at the nearest layby & waited for breakdown assistance. The recovery guy said the torque converter was red-hot, but the gearbox sump was lukewarm to the touch. The fluid level was to the max on the dipstick & still a healthy red colour.
I now have reverse gear but no forward gears whatsoever. Does anyone out there have any suggestions as to whether it's a torque converter problem, or an issue with the valve body or the box itself?
I'm now stuck at home with the truck & getting frustrated with being messed about by "friends" offering assistance with transportation & garages saying they'll have a look then continuously telling me to ring back next week.
Many thanks in advance for any advice or assistance.
