Got it back all done yesterday. He only charged me 100 bucks for parts and labor and I got to watch the whole process. Not that I think I could do it myself but it was a learning experience. Those shops that charge 700 for a rebuild are a rip off. We replaced almost everything in there and it came up to a little over 100 bucks in parts and he owed me a few bucks so we called it even. If you ever get a 700 rebuilt, tell them when they are done you will need an itemized bill and time sheet.

Did you use aftermarket and late model upgrades while you were at it?

Was it a guy in Des Moines named Slifka? He did my TH350 for 100 in labor and it was the best trans I ever owned.

Were all the tolerances checked before installation?

$100 is a good deal, no doubt, pretty hard to get the parts to do a rebuild for much less than that.

The first one we rebuild using std ac delco parts (from the place I worked, AC delco dealer), new electronics plus the shift kit cost $240 in parts...
I took my DD in and they charged 700 but I didn't have to take it out, cleanit, replace parts or put it back it... plus I got a 12,000 mile warrenty... its was worth it to me... whats the use of having a $5000 truck thats doesn't move /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I spent more than 100 bucks in the rebuild kit alone for mine, plus new torque converter was another 100 (you did replace the torque converter right?) all in all I spent about 300 bucks on mine and I did it myself.

Cyberfire,
Something sounds fishy to me...$100 bucks for everything just doesn't sound right to me. How much was the complete rebuild kit? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

The rebuild kit, that is seal kit was 15.60 his cost. He buys alot of them so I suppose he gets some kind of discount. The frictions were like 2.60 a peice or something like that. The band was 8 something. Can't remember what the sprags were. There were some parts that we replaced that wouldn't be covered under a normal rebuild. One was a pressure plate that lays next to the frictions. Mine had a crack in it. All tolerances were checked and rechecked as it went together. I think the reason he did it for his cost for me is because he is trying to get out of the buisness and wants all of it gone. Now days he drives a truck and doesn't have to get dirty so he enjoys that more. If I knew what he knows I could go into buisness tomorrow. Didn't replace the pump and didn't put in a new torque converter. But then like he said when we pulled the pan off mine the fluid was really clean and without metal shavings so there wasn't anything like that to worry about. The reason mine wouldn't shift is the lug that is on the 2-4 band broke out.
