Transmissions in Seattle

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know – haven’t posted in five years but now I’m running back home to momma.

Sniff.

So here’s what now – I need to rebuild/replace my transmission (E4OD) in my 1997 F-250. Where is a good place to take it? Locally, that is, here in the greater Seattle area.

Info is appreciated

He is this desert rat down in El Centro, CA and he can build transmissions that you don't have to worry about.

Even if you can't get the truck to Holtville (El Centro area), he ships all over the country to both trans shops and end users/installers.

Sorry. We just tried to steer you on a bullet-proof path.

We kinda' a helpful group here at 7.3. Maybe too helpful in some cases.

This thread needs to get moved to somewhere with more model-appropriate help.

What happened with Brian's Tranmission Service as the MOST respected bullet proof tranny? I was thinking of going that route but still needed a shop in seattle that could do the work. Seems I remember there was one in Bellevue that worked with BTS for that. I searched for an old post but no luck.

That's what I usually say, but I thought you wanted something more local.

I am 100% BTS.

EDIT: The first darn time I don't say BTS and it turns around and bites me in the arss.

Give Scott a call at RPM (Rock-Pavement-Mud) He can do the install and usually keeps a BTS or two in stock. He may also have JW transmissions too.

RPM NW: Rock, Pavement, Mud Northwest, LLC - Transmission

Phone is 253-820-3920 and he is in Orting. Not too many others out there that will give you a great transmission and the service Scott does.

I would do that but duplicate forum posting is usually frowned upon.

Humm, I never heard that. But, I guess I should read the rules.

I would post it if it was me. Never got hurt from a frown.

You can't go wrong with BTS or John Woods. I have the utmost respect for both, I just chose John after I spoke with both of them and just had a gut feeling.
