Which should be in the neighborhood of 3/8ths of an inch. Getting it too tight causes the second gear to drag as third gear wants to come on.

The first gear and reverse band getting it too tight will want to drag as second wants to apply. This adjustment I make when the valvebody is out and pressure check the adjustment at the case.

Long story short just be informed as to what you are doing to avoid an exspensive repair.

I appreciate the advice and tip. I know the truck has some miles on it so Iím hoping to make it last till next year when I plan to put in an ATS tranny in it.

I would have to say there is some better options. Not knowing where your from there are several good tranny builders across the US that will build you a transmission for a few bucks less than AT.S.

I'm from Northern MS. If there is a cheaper option with reliability i'm all ears. I only plan on adding maybe 100HP to the motor. But not until the trans is replaced or rebuilt.

Suncoast is in the Florida panhandle....
The M3GA jr is about $3500 I believe, but converter is another grand or 2 depending what you want. Shipping is extra & warranty is 12 months.
I got a 3 yr unlimited mileage warranted one from Wisconsin for $3500, everything but installation included.
