hi all, i've been chasing leaks in my '65 falcon c4. while i had the pan off to change the gasketi also changed the the shift lever to vertical to accommodate a locar floor shifter. i've been meaningto do this for years. of course i had the valve body out to do this. everything went back together asusual.and because i couldn't leave well enough alone, i adjusted the bands when i replaced the locknuts on the adjuster screws. i followed the ROM procedure: torqued to 120 "/lbs. then backed off the intermediate band 1 3/4 turns and the low reverse band 3 turns.i suppose i may have gotten this backwards: front band 3 turns and rear band 1 3/4 turns.would this account for my burnt fluid? or is it likely something else?the transmission seemed to shift and drive fine until i noticed the burnt fluid smell.and of course the tranny also drove and shifted fine until i started all this. thanks.
