Ya, that's the regular stuff too. I wanted to get B&M trick shift, but all the store had was the Hurst brand. Asked them why they didn't carry the B&M stuff and they (NAPA) said it was because they had it listed as the same part #. I'm thinkin they just stopped stocking B&M fluid, but the guy at the counter said it was because they were made by the same company :? :blam:

i dont need transmission fluid. i need coolant and engine oil.all im doing is taking off the carb, intake manifold, headers and heads. replacing the gaskets and getting the heads cleaned and checked. after that mess imma put it back together and get a new battery and run this b*tch! btw im drunk while responding to this. so after i get it running, check for the drainageand fix it. ok im drunk and tired and you ppl do the talking if you want.
