EA2/EB1 4 speed auto DONT TOUCH THEM

Just letting everyone know who doesnt already know it, the EA2/EB1 4 speed auto box is one serious POS, I look after mine like a baby as I have always been aware they are weak as P**S but the thing has just died AGAIN, after it blew up 11 months ago, another $1500 thanks on an EA????? it just aint worth it. Bring on my V8 ED monty Ghia and let the mods begin.

Guy's it's the first version of the 4 speed I am complaining about, the one in the EA2 and EB1, the box from the EB2 onwards is ok, I had the hub bit replaced 11 months ago with a bit from an EB2 and mine had smashed (very common on this box and let me tell you she was shattered) the EB2 onwards never smash this particular part so that bit in my box is now ok, the solenoids in my box are now gone (another popular thing from this box) I might ditch this one and make my way to the wreckers to find an EB2 to EL box with low km going cheap.
