    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.

    What happened to the Moderator Lounge? It doesn't show up when I login, which finally has been fixed.

    Just wondering, still having a issue with the 4r70w shifting. It's still not downshifting like I think it should and running up the gears is off I feel to. I have got a code 452 vehicle speed sensor problem. I took a look at it before Carlisle and noticed the remote linkage I had to make was hitting the plug in drive. The easy fix was to turn it 180 degrees. Just ran another code sweep and it came up again. I guess question one is can this cause the weird shifting? The second is I guess it needs replaced. Rock auto has them for around 12 bux. Thanks Mike

    Something is up. Numerous threads on the tech forum are blank, showing, say, 12 replies to a post, but nothing appears on the thread.

    I had a typo in an earlier Post. This is what I meant to say

    Correction GypsyR: I am now able to get my car running after a 15 minute drive because of your advice to not hit the gas peddle when the car is warmed up on startup. Before I was really working the throttle and the car would not turn over. I guess I am flooding it. Even when the car is cold I don't have to hit the gas peddle and the car starts up. I think there is too much gas leftover in the carb.
    I really appreciate your insights.

    Hi Gypsy,
    I grew up in Anderson. Where do you live in the foothills? As you can see by my profile I currently like in Knoxville. I still have family in Anderson that I visit. Perhaps I can stop by and meet you sometime when I'm passing through. I've always enjoyed reading your posts.

    .... it wouldn't be the first time reality took theory and conjecture out behind the woodshed and gave them a good thrashing.
    I have some cars. With a long list of parts on them that if anyone was interested in, they'd ask.
