Transmission

My tranny started life in a 1975 Chevrolet passenger car, somehow ended up in a Vega, and then given to me FREE! as a condition unknown unit. Some Vega lover somewhere is pissed because I have the tail section that is required to install a TH350 into his car....BUMMER!!!!

I decided to try my hand at rebuilding a Th350, after all, if I screw it up, I am only out the cost of a rebuild kit. I bought a master rebuild kit off of Ebay for $79.00, came with clutches, steels, gaskets, bushings, and the filter kit. Good deal in my eyes, the Alto clutches and steels seemed to be a very good quality.

Here you see the tranny case cleaned and painted, unfortunetely, I do not have a pic of the tranny before I started the rebuild, trust me, it was nasty!!!!!

Heres a few shots of the internalls of the tranny. I got lucky, all the hard parts were in excellent condition, the clutches on the other hand were toast!

This is a good shot of the valve body, it was dissasembled, inspected, and cleaned. I also installed a B&M shift improver kit while I was in there!

There it is, all done! If you are considering trying to rebuild your trans, I say go for it! It is not an extremely difficult task, a few special tools and some patience, and you are home free! I do highly recommend that you buy a book on the trans, as reassembly can be a real pain without one!
