Tps will cause the trans not to shift into over drive and lockup. As soon as u let off the throttle the converter will unlock thats just the way they are. But there is a way around it either a lockup switch or u can get rid of the tps altogether I did it on mine a few years ago.
So it hangs up in every gear?
Thats cheap and clean for 3500 I wish I could find another one that cheap I paid 3000 for my 96 back in 2013 was the first auto trans I ever owned. I rebuild 47re and 48re on the side for a hobby. I use to have another 96 with a 5speed paid 4800 for that with only 170000 miles on it back in 2009 by sold it in 2012 what a mistake that was. I also have a 4th gen dually with a 6speed.
The 72 inch pounds then 1-1/4 turns off is lower than what I have read. There are actually a lot of suggestions for that and it varied by year. With a new-to-you truck, unless the PO knew and told you about a rebuild, it’s hard to say what is inside it without tearing it down, and even that it would take experienced eyes. Lots put later year parts in them to make them stronger.
