If in fact this may be the issue, the rear part of the charged pipe should still use the snap hook to attach to throttle intake but the front may use new hose clamps (the original is a cheap plastic...

Don't know if this is your issue but air in the line can stop pumps from pumping fluid (hence the coolant air bleed process). I would put it back up on ramps, loosen up the oil filter top to relieve...

Jay Leno uses it in his classics. Looks like a viable product and probably lives up to its reputation. Question is, will you be the sacrificial lamb for us???

You won't get too much help here on that. Contact BMS. They are pretty helpful. I'm not sure what a JB4 2 Step is either and I have a JB4 with Meth.

Do not believe there is a low fluid light specifically for transmission fluid. You might just get a transmission warning light if it gets too low.

I suppose you could. There is a vent tube behind it that leads to the brakes to provide cooling. With my luck, it might work better.
