I have a 63 Riv with the nailhead engine and the original dynaflow transmission. I think dynaflow is the correct word. Can someone explain to me how this transmission works in sort of laymen terms. Are there gears? I can't seem to feel it shift no matter what I do. I know they only used it one year so what was the problem? Mine works great!

Thanks robo. I guess I should have looked it up myself. I still like the way mine shifts but I am not young anymore and don't need the thrill of racing in my Riv.

yer welcome. Wiki allways explains things better than I can.I now jack about mechanisms.
I've listened to people over the past who wouldnt live without their Dynalfow.others who swap em out. It's all about what works for you.

The Dynaflow was kind of the precursor to the switch pitch transmissions used in 65-67 Buicks, Cadillacs Oldsmobiles, and some Rolls Royces. I have one in my 70 GS. You can switch stall speeds (3200/1800) at the flick of a switch. Best street transmission ever. They work great.
