    I Know how you feel, and it sucks. Most of us have been there before, 2 or 3rd time for a repair. But it'll be right the next time ( atleast tell yourself that else you'll go nuts):-).

    Good luck

    You know they always say" good things come to those who wait." Maybe that will be your case. Sorry to hear about the trannie. Hope everything works out for you soon.

    haha, I have BEEN there. Check out "one of those weekends" in the off-topic forum. It took me two damn weekends to change a set of stupid valve covers. It was worth it, the Edelbrock covers look sweet.

    Isn't that something? I didn't manage to quit smoking until I bought a beater that I stopped worrying about... Now that I've found the keeper, I need to keep the butts away...

    I could swear there was a trail around here... Right around where those new condos are...

    Wow that's a good one. My best tranny replacement story is 4 times - 77 Chevy Sub 4x4 400/350/203. After a hard hunting trip it leaked fluid. Crawled under and the darn thing was cracked all across the top. #1: Took it out - had it rebuilt - replaced all mounts, etc. 1 week - cracked again. #2 Took it to shop this time, they replaced it - 1 week - cracked again. #3 Took it back - replaced - cracked again. #4 Took it back - they researched - decided I need the braces that were added in 78 from back of engine to TC. They modified - drilled and tapped and no more cracks. I just could never figure why it went so long before just fine with hard use. No problem ever again - anyway hope your transmission blues go away soon. I appreciate your not letting a jap truck tow your blazer. azblazor

    The plus side is that you get REALLY fast at pulling the tranny by the third time you do it.

    I'm pureinsanitys wife and i helped him put the damn thing in over the weekend, I could pull the tranny and transfer case myself. Hell we did it twice Saturday. I think the best solution is to put a match to it and buy another one.

    One of these days we will get to hit the trail in this beast.

    You guys are great and thank you for all your support.
