Default Transmission rebuild/removal

Alright, so it is for sure, I need a rebuild or a new tranny. Does anyone have any pictures, tips, or anything on doing this? I have bought the Hanes manual, so I will go from there. Anything you guys might know would be very helpful. THanks

On rebuilding your own tranny? No. Don't do that.

Thanks for the tips. No, I will not be rebuilding it myself. The shop will do it for me for 700 if I bring them the tranny. I think that sounds like a pretty fair price. We have done quite a few large projects, only a couple this big, but this one will be a learning experience. I have never taken apart an auto. I have seen many of the manuals, but an auto will be interesting. Thanks again.

Tranny'* in these cars are a breeze to remove if you got the right tools, the hayes manual, and some beer. When I did the trans in my Bonne, me and a friend had the tranny out and on the ground in under 4 hours. And the new one in and everything all buttoned up and driving in 5. Like JR already said....There'* one opposing bolt on the back side of the motor that is a ROYAL PITA, and don't think that you can start it by hand to get it started then tighten it. Actually, you need about 3-4 feet of extensions, and a uni-socket, get it goin, and we got it in with an air ratchet. So yes, you could use air tools. Like I said, it isn't as bad as you would think. First time I've ever done FWD and with out a hoist...It went off with out a hitch...I can't complain. I almost think it'* easier than RWD. But that'* my 2 cents.

3 guys i've talked to here don't want to rebuild them, they say they don't hold up after a rebuild. I got one from a junkyard, $550 with 80,000 miles out of a supercharged car. I'm putting it in sunday; will post back with results.
