Years ago, George Riehl talked about 300-ifying transmissions for those cars that previously had their trans swapped to a standard Powerflite or Torqueflite when in for an overhaul. George would offer a rebuild service where the performance of any trans again would be as intended in a Letter Series, and I guess other specialists also can perform this job. Is there anywhere a procedure written for what differs between a 300 trans and a regular Powerflite, so I can present this to a transmission shop in my vicinity?
My Powerflite was rebuilt 10 years ago by a transmission guy who happened to own a 55 NewYorker, and thereafter my transmission acted like it also was into a NewYorker. The car would not give kickdown on anything higher than 37 mph, while my memory of the old version was that kick-down could be had up to almost 50 mph and when floored the trans would not upshift before just nudging 60 mph (now only 50)?
Regards from Norway
(bought my C-300 aged 25 and have sometimes driven fast with it. 80 mph on first when the trans was damaged and would not shift at all spring to mind. I also have been riding shotgun with George Riehl on Detroit area freeways in his 300J, which was an experience on its own)
