  • Got my tranny back today

    Garage is full of parts now! I went and picked up my F-O-M from the shop today:



    Now I ask ya, is that pretty or what? It needed everything:
    - rear pump
    - torque converter
    - complete bushing set
    - all 8 discs
    - pan
    - transfer and rear suction tubes
    - pressure plate

    The shop owner said he was amazed that it drove at all. The best we can figure, someone off-roaded it and punched in the trans pan on a rock, which crushed the suction tube, which cause the rear pump to go dry, which... you get the picture.

    Almost there!

        Looks nice. When I got my trans back from being rebuilt the guy had painted it navy blue and gold.

                Clark, the trans looks great. I've learned to ask if a trans shop was going to paint my trans. The blue & gold mention above was similar to my Mopar 727 being painted red when it was going in a restoration[xx(]. I'm glad yours got the silver treatment.

                Hopefully you'll have some pics with the engine and trans matted together before installing it in your Lark.

                    Yep, nothin' but natch'l metal! Which leads to a question: Should the bellhousing stay natural or be painted black to match the block?

                        Your trans looks great,I just got mine back last week as well. Mine is painted silver, they say it's easy to detect leaks with that color. Did you have your speedo cable removed? How much was your rebuild? You needed alot of parts. Did they rebuild your torque converter?

                            Clark, generally, the BH and at least part of the tranny got whatever color the engine was. Unlike so many "Awe-thentic" resto's nowdays, they (the Stude production workers) weren't to exacting about paint application.
                            Can you imagine what a Stude would've cost if they'd taken time to polish each brass fitting (and clear-coat it) and masked off valve covers 'n such!

                            But back to your question - most original cars I've taken apart were as I described.

                            Now, if y'all'll excuse me, I'll get back to polishin' the caps on my U-joints. Gotta make 'er JUST like she left the fac'try![:0]

                            Miscreant adrift in
                            the BerStuda Triangle


                            1957 Transtar 1/2ton
                            1960 Larkvertible V8
                            1958 Provincial wagon
                            1953 Commander coupe

                            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
