Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.  If any of you have any advice regarding by 4-speed fluid issue, I would greatly appreciate it.  I would like to get this machine back on the road!

Originally I'm from the Newaygo area (north of Grand Rapids), but I haven't lived there in quite some time.  My parents are still up there though.

The 4-speed fluid question is under the transmission forum.. under "833 Fluid".  I had to put a new clutch in, and when I drained the fluid, it looked like motor oil.  I started looking around, and there seemed to be as many suggestions for fluid types as there are cudas out there.

Anyway, I now have suggestions ranging from 10W30 to ATF to gear lube.  Right now I'm leaning toward the gear lube.  :???:
