- 1981 Dark Blue Coup
Ok people.....the 17 month restoration is going smoothly.......waiting for the engine to come back....will be going from 190 HP to about 300 HP..changing the reae end gear ratio to a 3.55 (overdrive warrants the change). I am getting ready to purchase a 700R4........I know Bowtie and others make this conversion. The question I have is the hydraulic lockup function. My TH360 has a harness that goes to the transmission (not sure if it is for lockup or not). One shop is suggesting the hydraulic lockup system (no wiring) while the other is suggesting a wiring kit to control the lock up function......I am stuck in which way I should go.....I have reviewed most all the post in regards to the conversion....drive shaft, shift changes...just not much on the lockup......any help would be greatly appreciated....in the mean time..back to installing my steeroids rack and pinion.....
