    stupidest thing I've ever seen

    When I bought my Dodge I noticed a wire unhooked on regulator. Then saw the battery was hooked backwards. Some people just don't know about positive ground.

    Still searching for the answer, engine stumbles at 50.

    I got a set of points from rock auto. Best looking points I' seen in a long time. A lot better made set than I'v e been getting from parts store.

    Gyromatic question

    Thats what I think too. Not sure exactly how much oil I drained out. But I'm sure it was too much because now it works like it should. I measured 1 quart but not sure how much was left in pan.

    Gyromatic question

    Your right. Lady in working in farm and home told me 1 qt was 4 pints. I might have taken out more than I thought. I'll put a little more in but it is shifting down like it should now. Thanks for the correction.

    Gyromatic question

    I found my problem this morning. Operator probs happen a lot.about. About a year ago [yes it took a long time to find] I changed fluid in trans. Jacked car up from passenger side to get at trans plugs. Big mistake, suppose to have 3 pints 10 wt oil. I drained out 1.5 quarts of oil. Put in 3 pints 10 wt oil now it works fine. Sometimes feel like a fool this is one.

    Gyromatic question

    I can't get my 50 dodge gyromatic to down shift unless I come to complete stop and push clutch in Shifts up ok but not down even if I floor it. Ran all electrical tests in manual and they all check out ok.

    External resistor or not

    my 50 dodge is 12 volts. I have a resistor and was still going thru points like crazy. I tested and was getting 10 volts from resistor to dist. I switched the wires around on resistor and now get 6 volts to dist.guy tell me resistror is the same either way but this is the way it tests. Car is running way better and points haven't burnt out since I did it.

    Changing fluid on fluid drive unit

    My 50 dodge didn't start. Unhooked the wire from coil to the, can't think what it's called not, on the aircleaner bracket where wires go to carb and trans. Now starts better than it ever did. If I come eo complete stop it will shift down, take off and let up on gas and it shifts up. The only thing it doesn't do is if I slow down and floor it no down shift.
