    it is a rebuild kit. Not 100% complete. I wish it had bushings, mine are good enough I don't feel bad using them but still.

    There are a lot of parts in an Automatic Transmission. Be afraid, be very afraid, HAHAHA :haha:

    Sled, how long do you think it'll take you? Have you had any classes dealing with auto teardowns and rebuilds? I'm just asking for future reference, I know I don't have the skills to do it now, but maybe in a few years.

    Don't take a chance on the old bushings,,
    Take the case to your local trans shop and have them install new bushings,,,
    I do it all the time,,cheap insurance !!!!

    Also look in the clutch drums and input shafts there are bushings in there as well,,replace all of the thrust washers (especially the plastic ones )

    Hopefully you checked the end play BEFORE you tore it down ???
