Andy Warren Transmission

Ok well as some of you know I had my second stock tranny fail on me a couple weeks ago... I took it out on Thursday and here is what I found.
The new fluid has only been in there since last September and was very chocolate looking so I'm sure it's gotten hot and been acting funny, delayed shifting, mis shifting, delay into reverse, ect.

I took the liberty of ordering a tranny from Andy Warren with a billet input shaft and a Precision Industries Torque Converter.
Should be here in a week or so.
I will use this thread as a review for his tranny also so keep an eye out for when I install it in a few weeks


Here are the pics:

It makes the removal a lot quicker! Maybe the trans is still OK... except for the brown fluid!

Actually I just used one jack! The yellow one was not used because it was the wrong style.

Rich, I'll have it back up and running in a few weeks


And the flywheel was the surprise for you guys

The tranny is bad, it's been going out for a month or so and I'm going to be replacing it

Check your crank end play while its out. only time I ever see flex plates go is if crank thrust washer has a lot of play. Not trying to worrie you but ive seen them take out trans and flex plate this way.

Thanks for the advice
So I assume I just take the rear of the crank end and move it side to side?
