    Back in May replaced a tyre 235x35x 19". Thats 2 tyres replaced in a year.
    Was wondering if l would have to replace the other?

    Went to Melbourne 2 weeks ago. Yeah rear tyres are stuffed too.

    Rang local tyre place. No stock, & had order them in.
    Turned up, to have them fitted & they wouldn't fit them.
    Load rating was wrong. Load rating for my car is 92.
    The load rating for the 235x35x19" is 91.
    I ended up with 245x35x19". And $20.00 cheaper.
    The drive was a lot smoother.
    I'am l happy? Yes.
    Well worth the money.

    Back to the 6l50.
    The tcm from the USA arrived last week. It has been configured for a 6l80. Not much good to me.
    I sent of a email today, asking if l can bench test it? Waiting to hear back from them.

    Today external tranny cooler arrived, so installed it.
    Tomorrow or Monday l'll start the cooler lines. When that is done, maybe time for the install into my car.
    Hopefully very soon? But maybe not.
