Thinking about forward thrust movement and it relationship to tranny line pressure. I have heard about pressures in the 200lb range. Are these numbers not confused with internal pressure?

Seems like the little rubber tranny hoses we use would not handle 200+ lbs.

Anyone?

The lines don't see 200 psi, they will see i believe 40-50 max. 200 psi is normal and a good pressure from the pump on a good operating 200, some builders like higher 250-270ish but i have been running 215-220 at WOT with good results for the past few years.

So where do you measure line pressure? The supposed pressure that will cause the converter to move forward?

there are a couple of ports that you can use. On the drivers side just above the and forward of the shift linkage there is a 7/16 brass plug that you can remove and use a pressure gauge on. :)

I agree.

The cooler lines will "see" pump pressure if you restrict them enough.
