    727 not shifting through gears

    It looks like you have a manual valve body. Is the shift pattern normal: PRND21 or reverse pattern: PRN12D? If it is a MVB you have to select every gear manually, of course but, if not and it has no throttle linkage, the trans is probably "toast". Mike

    727 Selector shaft lever removal

    Pry the lever up with a screw driver between the two levers then repeat between the lower lever and case. You may have to alternate coming in from each side-back and forth. Mike

    Shifter Adjustment ?

    If the hole in the transmission lever is worn, a small flat washer can be welded on to shrink the hole size. If excessive up and down clearance exists, shimming will help. A visual inspection will confirm issues as pointed out in #2 above. Mike

    Why would you think that? Either put it back with sealant or install a stud like OEM. Mike

    torque converter to flex plate gap

    Did you pull the converter forward as far as it will move? Did you lube the hub? There may be a problem with the interface/clearance. The flex plate cannot be sprung out of shape with bolts trying to pull the two together. Mike

    Correct filter.....

    It doesn't remove as small a particle as does the 51515 but, I use them for the higher pressure rating on 3 cars. Mike

    Not so good vibrations...

    Sounds to me like the geometry of the linkage may be suspect. MAX wedges didn't use automatic shifting valve bodies to my knowledge. I would recommend a manual reverse valve body behind that engine. Have you checked drive line angles? Mike

    70 Charger - Mechanic says "Transmission Selector Shaft" is leaking and wants 8 hours labor to replace

    It could be the leak. The selector shaft "seal" can and do leak, usually due to old age. With the correct tools it shouldn't take more than 1 hour. Mike

    New rebuilt 727 leaking near filler tube

    You may have bent the tube at the o-ring groove. Pull the tube to inspect and correct if bent. Then adjust the top end to clear the valve cover. Reinstall with a little silicone for insurance. Mike

    Driveline vibration!

    As stated above, check drive line angles. Those can be influenced by bad motor and transmission mounts. Mike
