transmission filler tube problem

ok as u all know i have bodydropped the dakota and i have put motor back in saturday. the last few nights i out my frontend back on unpainted incase of scratches. but i had 2 problems and fixed one of em but know my transmission tube hits my hood so my question is if i shrorten the tube and as long as i shorten the gauge (what u check thwe tranny fluid with) the same length would that work.

yeah, but it would have to be the same exact space that you deleta on both components, as well as to re-mark the gauge.

well fatheadjames if u notice on a stock dakota the tranny checker is close to hood anyway. if u take another 4 inches off of that then when u bend it over it will be flat with top of motor. therefore when u go to add fluid it will not flow into the tranny like it should. and besides i bent it over already and it dont look good. its more of a show truck than performance truck.

What motor do you have? The one on my 99 5.2 is stock as far as I know and it clears the hood and I'm body dropped.

Is it the original tranny? Even though you dropped your body, it shouldn't stick up higher than your intake. I ran into the same problem modding my 86 Camaro with a stroked 383 truck motor and TH-400 tranny swap. A clump of play-doh on top of the stick ($0.96), and close the hood. Measure the distance on the doh (dent from stick to hood) and cut it from the top of your stick so you leave the original markings on the bottom. You should be good afterwards.

well i bought the truck when it had 9,000 miles on it and im pretty sure its the factory tranny. as far as seeign where it hit the hood i had it up on blocks and mounted fenders and hood back up look threw fender well area and marked it.

my motor is 3.9 auto .

but i have it figured out a few weeks ago. and im ready to start it this weekend. all except for one more wiring harness. which im doing saturday. extending wires is a bitch.
