I don't get enough of these to make it worth going through the rebuild. But it's good to know. Next one I get, I will save the tranny and give it a shot for the hell of it. Thanks for the info. Problem here is, lot of people paid 400 for machine. They don't even want to put in a control, and when you tell them tranny, they say they will buy a new machine.
I do alot of Cabrio's - that tub tool would be handy. I have never failed to get one out yet, my secret weapon is JD Rustbuster. But, I'm sure I'll catch one eventually. I've settled on 340 for bearing job, haven't had one person turn me down at that price yet. Lot's of time, if they have old style shocks without cups and they are getting alot of UL errors, I suggest they replace those too and that no extra labor charge, just price of shocks. that brings total to over 400, but again, most also replace the shocks. I keep 2 sets of bearings and 2 sets of shocks on truck. You want to do the job right away before they change their minds. Strike fast
