  • NEED: valve body DG-250 55-56 6cyl, 55 8-cyl

    My '54 Borg Warner, DG-200 normally started in 2nd gear unless I pull the lever to "L" or floored it; recently it starts in LOW, plus I lost 2nd gear. I was advised that I must remove the valve body, clean and make sure there are no sticking valves.

    I am interested in purchasing a VALVE BODY for a 55 DG-250 (V8 Stude) or 55-56 DG-250 6-cyl Stude; I understand all of these are first-gear-start types.

    IF YOU HAVE ONE FOR SALE, I'd certainly appreciate it.

    Please contact me at :
