Replacing the Auto

Looks like I need to replace my 4spd auto (lost 2nd and 4th gears)

My plan is to get a replacement box from a wrecker, swap them over and get rid of this bitch.

My question - to replace the box should I remove the old box + bellhousing + torque converter? or can I just remove the old box FROM the bellhousing and plug the replacement in there?

The other option is to deliver the car + new box to a tranny shop and get them to do the dirty work - depends if I reckon my weekend is worth $300.

Any suggestions?

Re: Replacing the Auto

the bolts for the bellhousing are on the indide of it, so nice idea but no dice.

Whole box has to come out, I find it just as easy to pull the motor and gearbox, do the rear main engine seal while out, bolt together and drop the lot back in.

But your call on how you do it.

Re: Replacing the Auto

Yeah I fugured that'd be the case :-/

About that $300 quote for swapping over - assuming that doesn't include fluid or a service, and charging $60ph, does it sound like a 5 hour job?

I'll ring around a few others anyway.

Depends if you cut your hand and require five stitches in the process
