To add to my earlier response to this thread--make sure the PG equiped FC has 
fresh Dexron as well--at least a pan full.  As for the load mentioned 
above--this is the service our FC exhaust valve rotators were made for.  And our FC's 
can accelerate up a hill which allows us to pass all the VW Westphalia's 
(unless they've been converted to Corvair power)!  Bill Elliott are you out there?
