line pressure&tc,pump

checked my line pressure today, it's good a little higher than stock specs but I have a tugger kit in it, so with good line pressure, does that mean my tc and pump are in good working condition?-thanx John

Means your pump and pressure regulating system is working, has nothing to do with the operation of the tc, unless the presssure is low. That will burnup a tc.

You'll need a 300lb pressure guage with a 1/8 pipe thread end on a hose. The pressure port is about 4inches in front of the manual linkage on the drivers side. Idle in dr should be 55 to 65 lbs. Put it in man 2, hold the brakes and floorboard it for 1/2 second. Guage should hit 125 to 150lbs.

Forgot to mention the reason for the 300 lb guage . If you happen to put the trans in rev and floor board it, prressure will hit 280 to 300 lbs.
