My 86 Skier (Prostar was not made in 86) had the same problem. Be very carful not to switch to reverse quickley because with the drag on the forward chuch plates could cause the rear plates to snap. It happened to mine.

I would assume the friction plates would burn up before the metal plates would warp causing slippage, not drag. Creep is normally a by product of bad clearance or a poorly adjusted cable.

"Heavy" beer is for wine drinkers that are too embarrassed to drink wine in front of their buddies. "Light" beer is a drinkin' man's beer!
