need tranny help

Looking for assistance. I have a 66 Galaxie with a C4. On my way home last night I lost reverse and 3rd gear. The fluid was a little low but when it was filled the problem persisted. Since I think it is likely that I will need a rebuild, I am wondering how hard this is to do? Calling around shops I was getting quotes btwn 700-1200.00. Are there any links that may be helpful? Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you.

Eric

Re: need tranny help

I would suggest getting an 'ATSG service manual' - got one on ebay ($15) for my camaro's 700r4 - symptoms said bad governor. Governor gear was stripped, cost 8 bucks, took 10 minutes to change.
Tranny shop had said $800 carry-in, or $1200 including labor to fix it. two years and several thousand miles later, have to say it was best 15 bucks I ever spent- might tell you its just a filter, band adjustment, broken spring... good luck!
