Rain, Rain go away!! We started to change the Transmission today... 

Dam !! Rain started to pour. .

I was feeling better today!! So we decided to change the Transmission today... It's getting harder fo me to do these projects..But that's what keeps me going..The love of it all always!!!

Freshly rebuilt transmission .
With new B&M. Converter with 2800 stall. .
We used TCi Pro build high performance raceing kit installed with reverse valve body. .

Then we went to start the car to bring in the garage. Didn't start!!! Not getting fuel.. So its fuel pump or relay!! Not relay after checking..So decide to do in the job in the driveway!!!

Nice sunny day to do job. .

Nice sunny florida day..So we checked the fuel pressure.. No pressure.. It. Was the fuel pump.. So got new pump and installed...no big deal seeing we had to drop the tank and exhaust to remove the driveshaft anyway...to remove the Transmission !!!

Time to get old transmission out !!pipes and gas tank out

Everything thing was going good.. No major problems under here..other then dragging my oxygen along for the ride on the creeper!!! Lol..Transmission is all ready to drop now..

Floors looking good!!. shaft and all bolts are out out. . cross member loose and ready to go

All the wiring and botts are all disconnected ..Cross member all loosenedI

Looks clean under here!!!

Then it started pouring rain ...Hoping it stops so we can finish it tonight!!! If not tomorrow..

Here's the rain that stopped us!!

Rain,rain go away !!!So we can finish the Transmission today!!! Lol..

Dropping buckets of rain!!! Life in Florida!!!! Lol
