Dyno day info

how many people in northern wisconsin / Minnesota are up for a dyno day so I can take it to this shop that is in cloquet, mn and I am also going to look for another dyno to use (archer racing?) or see if AMSOIL will sponsor a day on thier facilities in Superior.

whn vswhen and where

I have no idea WHEN, or where yet, if not enough ppl are interested, say at least 5 then it hardly pays to try to get anyone involved as I can always just head into a local dyno myself.

smoked meat good, smoked tranny bad

Smoked the old tranny huh, what motor do you have, what tranny do you need, maybe i have one laying around or can find one for you to rebuild then stick in your truck without having the truck down for a long time.

i know your pain

fortunately the tranny shop i went with in texas, which is where i was when mine pooped, got my whole shifter assy replaced, and upgraded my tranny all for 2500, now you figure that the switch was like at least 100, the tranny fluid at what 17+qts at 5 a qt = 100, and the rebuild kit costing almost over a grand?, they did alot for the time it took to get it out, clean it up and get er back together in like 4 days

Mike,
That really stinks about the trans. Let me know what I can do to help, take it out and bring you to BTS or tow your truck there. Or go get that one in Mt. I will help anyway I can
