1955 Bel Air Power Glide Issue
I think the Power Glide on my 1055 Be Air is about to go. Clunks hard going into gear, and doesn't shift smooth at all. I have the 235 6 cylinder engine. Can anyone recommend a rebuilder or where I can buy a re-built tranny? Thanks.
Powerglides need to have the bands adjusted every 12 months or 12,000 miles. Get a factory shop manual for instructions on how to properly do this. I seriously doubt any transmission shop or repair facility will be able to do this without detailed instructions. As for the clunking, check the driveshaft universal joints. Sounds like they're worn.
