This probably isn't an option but if you have access to the shop where you took it to have the motor replaced, you could get it towed there, pull the engine / trans yourself and drive it to John, have him rebuild it, and install it back in yourself. Would save you the 300 and just cost you your time.

If you lived closer I'd do it for you but I know that isn't an option. I guess my $2,000 did nothing but buy you another headache

I am also curious to find out just what the heck went wrong. Grr. I can't believe just how much this has me ticked off, much more than I thought it would and it isn't even mine anymore! However, in a roundabout way, I'm still paying for that trans right now

gordy: no time constraits... anytime on saturday is fine... why dont u plan on being here like 10 or 11 if thats not to early for ya

adam:
that shop that we did the motor at was my dads, keyword: WAS. he has a new job in brookings, SD... and that is way further than the cities... the whole reason he is not involved anymore is cuz of distance...

john talked to zoomer and steve today to figure out the parts... and then i heard nothing until this evening when zoomer said he will probably get the parts in tomorrow and ship them overnight to me.. so we can still plan for the weekend

Where do you want to meet? Or should I just look you up on your cell when I get close?
