Does anyone know how much transmission fluid goes in a 1983 Velvet Drive Trans.?
Iíve noticed two hash marks on the dipstick and wondering if the level should be between the two when hot.
When I changed the fluid last year I simply removed what I could from the dipstick/filler; two quarts, and put two quarts back in.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

The top mark is the full mark. Between the marks is fine.My book says 2.7qts for a power slot.

Oh, I forgot. To drain the fluid you take off the bottom trans cooler hose where it hooks on to the tranny. It's messy to drain like this, but there is a screen inside the tranny at this fitting. If any junk is in the tranny it will be right there.
