Actually you would do a lot for the board if you could do a complete write up and detailed pics of the rebuild, especially for the guys with auto's

By the way it's nice to know that you will tackle this yourself and save $1,000 or more.

Dammmm its only been 8 months with this trany !!! .. I would not go through them again though.. My trany had a huge dent in the pan when I got it causing the pan to weep and leak... Guess what they "wouldn't cover"...... so now I fill my trany every week or soo.. Untill I can fix it .. *******s!!!!!!!
