Just got an old 85 Chevy 4x4 with tranny problems It has reverse and no forward gears. Just wondering what might be wrong with it I have very little tied up in this project and I am considering rebuilding the trans myself. I just wondering how difficult it is to rebuild and what I need to look for
A Transmission chain repair shop, decided to hire people off the street, give them some training, instead of paying good money, to a good Mechanic. They had so many comebacks, and got rid of so many people, that at the end of the year, they sent out 23, W2 forms, for a 4 man shop. So, it may be a learning curve. How many times are you willing, to go back through it, to get it fixed right? A good Mechanic, will try to find out why it failed, and fix the problem, so it does not happen again, rather than just replace parts.
