DIY Projects/Mods - Bling


Transmisson Pan & Flywheel Cover

After owning this car for over 4 years I thought it was time to change the transmisson filter & fluid. I also figured is was time to add some bling to transmisson.

I stopped at my local parts store & picked up a transmisson filter/pan gasket for a 350 turbo. You will also need at least 4 to 6 quarts of transmisson fluid. Being that this car is over 30 years old & was filled with Dexron III that is what you should use. But, Dex III is no longer licensed by GM so I upgraded to Transynd 295. This is top shelf fluid as it is used by Allison. OBTW - it is not cheap... $40 a gal.
NOTE - DO NOT use a rubber transmisson pan gasket as they will leak. Get a cork or cork composite gasket.

Rear Axle Cover

While I was changing the transmisson fluid I decided to replace the rear axle gear lube and add some bling. Pretty simple change.. You will need 1 quart of gear lube and new rear axle cover gasket.
