Anyone doing any light towing with their V6?????

I may want to tow a 1500# trailer with the Bonnie ( Buick 231 , Metric200, now with 3.42 gears).

The rear tires are tall making my "effective" ratio around 3.08. May put a slightly ahorter tire to help the ratio.

So what have you towed?

How do you like the 3.42s? Now you could put in a 200-4R.

That 200 metric wont hold up even with towing 1500 pd,, it a very light weight tranny,, the motor will do it,, and the rear end for sure,, but I would find a 350 turbo and put it in,, IMO Matty man
