    Chalk up another transmission to the big block. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif This time I cracked the case of the TH400 right where it mounts to the adapter. Ugh....I'm soooo tired of messin with transmissions. Now I have ANOTHER frickin swap to look forward too, and thats when I can figure out where to get another TH400..... <font color="red"> ARGGHHH!!!!!! </font color> Actaully I think the case already had a small crack in the same place, I just made it worse. It had been leakin from there since I installed it. So now is when I go hide under a big frickin rock for about 10,000 years and be pissed off at my truck for a couple weeks. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I know dude....I need to do that. But I don't have anything else to drive, so I have to go with the quickest option. Doin a SM465 swap is not the quickest. I can swap to another TH400 in a couple hours. I'd have to find either a 205 to go with the 465 or an adapter to mount my 208 to the 465....Ugh, My head hurts. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    well, i gotta ask: what where you doing when it cracked? I was skying mine out of the bowl in Hollister Hills, which, ironically is the same play area my Junk caught fire after Rita jumped the truck out of, you guessed it! the Bowl in Hollister.

    So what jackassery where you up to? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I had the t-case in low, (208) and tranny in 1st....was in a pile of cobble sized rocks slowly clawing and spinning to the top....I smelled the fluid actually. Like I said, I'm pretty sure it had a small crack before I started, I just agrevated it. Now I just wanna fling poo at my truck. Fawkin bastard. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Why fling it? Isn't it to the point yet to when you crawl up on the hood and squat. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Damn dude! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Looks like we're both searching for TH400's now huh. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    If i happen to stumble across two, i'll be sure to let you know. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Don't feel bad man. I keep getting faster and faster each time i have to pull out my tranny and install it again in my car. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Last time, by myself i had it out in a little over an hour. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif of course theres no t-case to mess with on that one, thats why i don't mind doing it so much. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I've been starting to think manual is the way to go also.
    But i like to powershift so i think the NV4500 is more my style for my truck. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I just need to find a lenco tranny for my car.
