|That's not where the transmission goes!|
27 July -- Got the transmission back on Fri. No real problem with it although one reverse clutch plate was replaced. I also installed new damper plate. Had one suspect spring assy that could have been causing rattle. All back inboat with new oil cooler, waiting on turbo. It was sent to Miami to have the housing built up and machined back to specs, new housing $1,000, repair $500. Should have that back on Tues or Wed with hopes of leaving for Keys by next weekend, weather permitting.
30 July -- Picked the turbo up today. The price of gold went up along with the jewlers hourly rate. $750 to repair housing. Over $1000 for new one. Total was $1325. New turbo must be priceless.
