help just installed new trans

I just installed my new tranny from hts and t/c from suncoast.

Now when at idle in neutral and park the truck has a small shake, like a tire when its out of balance, its nothing real bad at all but, it kind of has me thinking.

any ideas? or am i just being paranoid?
any input would help

the tranny is freakin awesome it shifts great :Thumbup: , but hts says to let it shift through all the gears 50-100 times before running at wot or really hard so I haven't got to get on it really hard yet. But i will keep you posted.

thanks, Eric

Rotating mass can really mess with things, especially if you amplify the mass, it can make shakes and vibrations more noticeable. I would say its probably because the new converter has more mass and everything is tighter inside. Thats just a guess though.

give it some time and get used to it. I was without my truck for a couple months before I had my tranny to go in so I didn't notice any difference but you were doing this with only a days wait so it probably changed some. good to know it's in and going.
