Tranny pricing question

I just had a TF999 rebuilt, using koleen (sp?) steels, kevlar bands, blue clutches, etc.

I'm looking at about $650 plus tax for the rebuild, not including the price of the tranny (it was my tranny). He wants $168 for the torque converter, plus a $50 core charge.

Basically, I'd be out the door for about $933. Or, I could give up the torque converter for my TF727, and the total would be about $879 (including tax).

Either way, am I getting shafted or does this seem fair?

Re: Tranny pricing question

Ive never had a shop do anything other than a stock rebuild on a 727 but maybe the comparison will help you a bit.

$245 stock rebuild, 727 I took it to him.
$99 for stock/rebuilt torque converter ( required core) from AMMCO

No warrenty, the guy did a good job and worked in a shop buy his house, the local shops here get $475-$600 for a Jeep 727 exchange ( stock built)

so i would say the trans price you got is decent, the kevlar bands up the price a bit not much though, the converter is a bit high I think, but you can call around and get a different price every other day.

Re: Tranny pricing question

I don't know if this shop's (Aamco) torque converter is new or not, but I spoke with PTC in Muscle Shoals, AL and he said he'd send me a stock, low stall rebuilt for $50.

Unfortunately, he also said he'd have rebuilt the tranny with all the goodies for $350. Doh! [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Re: Tranny pricing question

AMMCo converters are rebuilt, they all are as far as I understand!

if the tranny does what you want and stays together its good money! I wouldnt sweat it at all, ive cheaped out and gotten burned too many times!
