After much thought.

I believe Steve Williams comment about needle bearings...had to do with inside the 56 converter.

The driven hub. Is the only thing in that transmission that is Rockwell hard.. And a caged needle bearing. Used like I did.

The bell housing / converter shaft needle bearing. I do think the trans is more responsive.

And..the leak can be solved. But ..unless a dyno was available.. To test..taking that trans out gets old.

In the coming weeks going to replace the needle bearing with the bushing I made..

The leak is a pain..but not as much as waiting for oil to get to converter. And go into gear.. High idle few minutes.

Needs a needle bearing with 4. quarter inch holes..1. 1/8 inch hole does not cut it.

This grease should be good..for tl. And suspension.

I would think either one..

The red one is not white grease..they make. Another for that..

The picture showing white grease is the red tube..
