Stu's Transmission in Long Beach used to do all my work on my Chevy Hi-po trannies. He was by far the best in that area. I don't how he is now since I'm into Ford's and in Ventura county.

i had mine rebuilt at a shop here in east los angeles, but i am sure you have dozens of shops around your area that are just as good!

While your at it get a new slave cylinder. Also take a close look at your clutch line....if it's old you'll want to replace it as well.

I would also recommend Stu's in Long Beach. They built the trans in my 35th a few months ago and it works great!

i paid 750 and it was a straight rebuild on an aod. i figure the manuals must not be that much more considering a rebuild on a manual would seem easier.
