    ok,i finally get everything worked out to do my tranny again today.i get the blazer on the lift and get the tranny out.the guy(bill) who rebuilt it was there to help.we get the trans and case out of the blazer and find that the pump and converter are wiped out.(2500 rpm stall no less)the bushing in the pump spun and wiped out my converter.bill jumps in his van and boogies 20 miles to get a pump and converter from his house.he gets back and we install the new pump and new in box converter.(what a guy!!)we assemble everything fill w/ fluid,and test fire it on the lift.put in reverse slams in tight,drop to drive same thing,goes right in tight.kool!my day is lookin pretty damn good!![​IMG]well be outta here in no time!we clean up all the tools etc.and i lift the truck back up for a last look over,and what do i find?tranny fluid on the floor!!!!!!!at this point i just bust up laughing,insanity IS setting in i think!SO,we tear it back out again.(this makes 4 times and ive only logged 20 miles on the blazer!!!!!!)we bust it out in record time(under 15 min)and start searchin for a crack in the tranny case now.nothing to be found.he stuffs a rag into the(brand damn new)converter and pressureises(sp) it the weld on the converter snout has a faulty weld and is leaking!!!WHY ME!!!so now i scatter trying to get another converter at any cost.discount and autozone used to carry B&M converters and stock reman.well guess what?they no longer stock converters!itll take till tuesday to get 1.ok now i start callin everybody i know that has gm parts layin around.ALL of them just did "spring cleaning" and tossed out the ones they had!almost 2 hrs i spend on the phone trying to get another,to no avail and i give up!

    im not lookin for sympathy,just thot id give yall a good chuckle.if i was having to do this on my back in the driveway it would be a tragedy,but im in a fully equiped shop,witha lift and any and all tools i could possibly need so its just a pain in the a$$,and frustrating.no big deal to me really.im just glad its not my daily driver.

    Re: who wants a good laugh at my expense?!?!

    Ummm I do sympythize with ya.
    I have an 85 tercel that had the tranny go out.
    I got one from the salvave yard and put it in(on my back) they gave me one for a 4spd.
    Well I let it sit and have been dragging it around for two years.
    I gave it to one of the ol ladys freinds and got around to stuffing the tranny back in last week.
    On the ground it seemed to shift OK but in the car it won't go into 3rd or 5th. ARGHHHHHHHH.
    And of course the warranty is no good.
    ARGHHHHHHHHHHHH.
    I should be able to set a speed record when I swap it out again.
    Aint life grand?
    See ya

    Insanitys settin' in. Rah,ha,ha, ha,

    I know how you feel, It'll drive ya wacky sometimes. Pullin' a trans 4 times, your handleing it ALOT better than I would. I'D BE PISSED!!! The frigin' thing would be direct drive on the 3rd try, I'd just get mad and weld the drive line to the crank and sell to one of those "roundy round, guys"

    Re: who wants a good laugh at my expense?!?!

    Yea it SUX, but there's no sense in bothering to get mad. It's reached the point with me that its becoming amusing! [​IMG] It's like trying to see how long i can go w/out driving it. All i can say is it better be worth the wait! Bill who was w/ me today,owns an alcohol injected drag car and he was impressed by how it sounds and the throttle response. So I'm taking it as a good sign. [​IMG]

    On a personal note i received an E-mail about my posts being hard to read because of the lack of caps. Sorry for the head aches,from squinting!!I'll try to do better.[​IMG]

    Steve... that sucks canal water! Sounds like you and me are getting our luck from the same place LOL [​IMG]. I went to pull a yoke from a 12Bolt rear and it starts pouring... well I'm soaked before I even start and I see a truck w/ no bed on it... so I'm like cool... looked at the yoke and thought it was right... well got it out, paid for it and home... it's the same stupid one I have... man I'm an idiot... next time I'm taking the tape measure [​IMG]

    Re: who wants a good laugh at my expense?!?!

    Yea you also have the tranny,but it's kinda out of my reach. I'm gonna go ahead and get 1 thru Jegs or Summit prob. I'll get the torque master 2000,it's stalls at 2100 RPM. I dont want to go 2500 again,the little i got to drive it,it seemed to be too much for what i want. So it makes for a good excuse to get a new B&M.[​IMG]At least the tranny is OK now.Bill told me today,that if it goes again he would give me my money back,that maybe hes over looking somethin.

    Re: who wants a good laugh at my expense?!?!

    I've run a stock converet, Torque master 2000, and a Holeshot 2000. The Torque master was by far the best. Holeshot was O.K., seem to slip more than the Torque master, not as strong when it hooked up. Stock sucked, That is if you don't plan on wheelin, just street driveing, or mud boggin.
