the problem: she starts and idles fine in park. when i put her in drive her idle "shudders". if i go in reverse, she stalls out completely. when she drives in "d" she is very sluggish and struggles until second gear is reached. as far as reverse, she wont stay running at all in that gear. is this a tranny issue? does it use vacume to shift?

Been a while , pardon me if I forgot something. "Subaru3" has the same car , maybe he'll see this.
Has the car been sitting long? How many miles on it?

Sorry about its problems, I have no input that I feel will help.

ok. new development....the carb seems to "spit-up" when i put her in gear and try to go.
Sounds like maybe timing is a little retarded. Deffinately keep working on the transmission but also take a good look at the igition system. Make sure everything is ok then have a crack at setting timing by ear or with vacuum gauge.
Timing marks on the flywheel may not be entirely accurate.

however, the torque convertor seems to be slipping like a bad clutch. does anyone know where i can find one. i looked all over town and the intertron and zippo. would it be easier to convert it to standard????
