Ringo Can Upshift
Saturday I took Ringo out for a short cruise at speeds up to 50. I didn’t dare go too far since the tail/brake lights still weren’t operating. While it seemed like the transmission held itself in Low a little longer than we’re used to, it did smoothly shift into Drive. It also looks like I was successful in stemming the flow of ATF leaking from the shifter cable. While there was a dangling drop of fluid, there were no puddles. Saturday evening I was out in the garage replacing the starter and finishing the reinstallation of the engine seal pieces. I should be able to finish that tonight and I’m hoping to drive him to work in the morning.
