x2 Just because you got it on ebay dosent mean you got beat. I have been beat on ebay but I have also made like a 100 very smooth transaction. But, one usually gets what they pay for and you might end up paying for it twice or more. Or, maybe not. Maybe the guy builds a killer tranny for a reasonable price? Why not? Everyone has to start somewhere. The question is. Is someone willing to be that person to roll the dice? Well I guess you did. Thats ur decision. I'm no tranny expert, and I would have to concur that it is probably not a good idea for you to start taking things apart. Just my $02 Cause I sure as **** wouldnt. Ull probably never have an issue and it will run forever.... On the other hand there are many vendors here that make bullet proof (kinda) trannies. But you do pay for it. You will usually get what you pay for with the top tranny vendors. Hey but its ur money to spend how you please.
