Re: [DML] Re: Shift Computer


Honestly, I'm not in the business of rebuilding them, but like Dave says, I 
*will* do it for a million bucks!  In the midstate club, we haven't had much 
luck with longevity, though.  Still working on that one (right Ron?).

Based on your symptoms, however, there is another thing to check:  If you 
are popping fuses, you could have the large black cable rubbing somewhere, 
or worse yet, draped across the exhaust at some point.  This will cause 
erratic shifting also, and will typically pop the fuse.  We had a couple 
club members that had this problem.  After repairing the melted wire, the 
trouble was gone.  --Just make sure you check it closely at every point from 
the engine bay to the side of the transmission.
