I have a friend that just picked up a 72 Sanger, runs a 440 with a power glide. I was looking at the boat and there are no fluid lines off the trans at all, every things was plugged. I read that you could do this with a power glide by running a specific bypass valve, I have a couple questions for you gents:
- My concern is cooling. He just got the boat did a couple hours at Elsinore to try and work out some bugs didn't notice any major heat, with this being a river cruiser and ski boat I would think there should be a cooler?
- Boat does want to move forward in Neutral, he says he can hold the boat and not have it pull away but if you let it go in neutral it will move forward. I thought that this was a common issue with the transmission but I have never played with one, the velvet drives don't do this and that's my knowledge base.
