    Sorry for not being active lately but real life gets in the way. Cancer has hit hard within the family. Wife (shes free now), mom and her live in both have cancer, and it's not looking too good but anyway. I have a question on the 4r70w. It's having trouble down shifting like from OD to a lower gear. It will bog down quiet a bit before it shifts. Actually the tranny has never shifted like I'd think it would especially on the OD side bogging down. We have been driving the car and have put about 900 miles on it. On a scan it shows the VSS is bad. I have replaced this a couple of times and tried to move it to the tail shaft where the speedo hooks in. The tranny is very consistent so I'm thinking it's a input problem. I checked the TPS voltage and it was 5.1 on the top end. Also there's no adjustment unless I reem the sensor holes out a little.

    I am logged in, but apparently not logged in.

    Welcome, Mustangerbob1. Visited Yesterday 06:35 PM Private Messages: Unread 0, Total 90.

    When I click on some of the picture links, it states I am not logged in, and asked for a log in, and then rejects it.

    Any idea? Thanks Bob

    I have made the corrections below. The 17 x 8's need to have a 4.75 bs and i stated 4.5. Then cut and paste and my error is repeated. Thanks.

    According to dodgestang
    All: 17x8 with 4.75 bs and 235/45R17s (closest to my setup)

    According to Mustang Plus
    All: 17x8 with 4.75 bs and 235/45R17s

    According to Vintage Mustang Wheel and Tire
    Front:17x8 with 4.75 bs and 235/45R17s
    Rear: 17x8 with 4.75 bs and 235/45R17s

    According to CJ Pony
    Front:17x7 with 4.25 bs and 225-235/45R17s
    Rear: 17x8 with 4.75 bs and 245/45R17s

    According to Legendary Wheel
    Front:17x7 with 4.25 bs and 225-235/45R17s
    Rear: 17x8 with 4.75 and 245/45R17s *
    *Test fit the 17x7 from the front on the rear to see if I can go with the 17x8

    I purchased the following
    Front Rim:17x7 with 4.25 bs
    Rear Rim: 17x8 with 4.75 bs

    GypsyR, See your post and comments on VMF and really appreciate your insight. Have utilized your feedback more than once. The reason I am reaching out to you is to determine why a recent post of mine is no longer visible from 4/29/19. It was a tire and rim question that has been brought up before, but I was asking in anyone else had figment issues due to UCA lowering, mideye lowering, etc.

    Still trying to secure VMF thoughts before I spend over $1000 to make sure it will work.

    Regards,
    Ron

    Car is now shifting great. Changing the gear made a world of difference. Running a 21 bou would love to have a 22. So far I can't find one and think none of those were made. That truck of yours is calling, please change my gear LOL. If you do, let me know how it worked. Going to buy another Lincoln MK 8. Only 250 bux and it runs like a top. Now for something to put it in. Started the "J" code Mach One. Pretty well stripped and will be on the rotisserie in a few days. Thinking about a 557. Course will keep all the original stuff. Miss the days when I could drive the Track car down Broad Street and set off all the car alarms. Naaaaa, I wouldn't do that.

    Victory! Changed the vss gear from a 18 to 21 tooth and it solved the problem. Shifting like a normal transmission should. In fact I think I will try a 22 if they make it. VSS was totally guilty in throwing off the tranny. Also the speedo looks better. Seems like it's more true. Later I'll check it against a radar gun to see that its on.
