After some troubleshooting, I found the transmission problem, highlighted here:


I have taken Kronk out a handful of times now. Today I took him for his longest break-in drive yet up to the Valles Caldera. It is a nice drive, and there is about 5,000 feet of elevation gain to get up there, so it is good for varying rpms. Kronk did great. It was really great to get out, also.

Was having fuel smell and tank pressure even before the rebuild. I checked the charcoal canister and it was clogged. So, I replaced it today with a VC120 from autozone.

Did you have to modify them mount at all?
Yes. The bottom clamp was interfering with a wire bundle coming off of the relay block. So I just took it off, and slid the canister up higher so the upper clamp would be more centered. Then I just put in a longer bolt for the upper clamp.

Next on my list was examination/upgrading of the brake system. I noticed my lspv was seeping. I briefly thought about replacing it with an aftermarket unit, but decided to just get a new OEM unit.
Also, the PO never put in longer brake lines with the lift. So, I decided to spring for a full braided SS kit from Slee.
