    Just add some cradle bushings and Gforce anti-hop axles to get more life out of your diff, and you'll have a highly improved reliable version of the stock car.

    Re: Transmission toasted - Please help a new guy with advice!

    I'm in Hernando County Florida. The Transmission Company that did the work was "Brooksville Transmissions" Chris and Rick Fuller are the owners and they have an excellent reputation as honest and knowledgeable. After working with them - I have to agree. They diagnosed the busted counter-shaft, pulled the transmission, let my car sit on their lift for almost a month while I ordered the parts from RPM (Indiana) and Monster (Texas). They installed the new flywheel, clutch and Transmission, palleted and shipped the core, they also dealt with having to ship a defective slave cylinder back to Monster (The first slave cylinder received from Monster was leaking - so it had to get shipped back, what a PIA that was.) All that - my bill was 673 bucks. Also they were really very interested in working on it. Like it was a project they enjoyed. I love when a mechanic treats you that way.

    I'm sorry if this seems like an advertisement for Brooksville Transmissions - but "odla" asked. The car feels great, shifts great, no slipping or grinding and the Monster clutch is very very smooth. The shifts are so clean, you can barely feel it.

    That sounds like very good service, and an even better price.

    Agreed. I'm definitely a satisfied customer. Isn't it a shame that we almost expect a lousy job or crooked mechanics, and are surprised when a guy is honest and does his job well?

    Good pick on both.

    Monster makes great clutches, and RPM has a great reputation.

    Yes! It's day 3 since I got it back, and I can't tell you how terrific this old V feels! Everything is settling in nicely, smooth as silk and so much fun to drive! I hope you have a great weekend!

    Tick does decent rebuilds. They are reasonably priced, and they make the shipping process pretty easy.
