the easiest way ive found to do selector seals on 727 or 904 trans is to pull pan and valve body out and put new seal in then the seal is fitted square. 

but this is how its done with trans in car.

nice progress looking forward to the end result

I’m hanging out so bad! The waiting part is inevitable but the more parts I clean up and paint in the mean-time, the more I gag to put them back on the car and feel some sense of achievement, lol!

havent really dialled-in how I’ll be suspending it while doing repairs cause there won’t be shit left to rest stands/hoist pads.

future problem

Speaking of the front seal/torque converter seal,

Hows the neck of the converter look? It's not uncommon for them to groove out too. 

Disco stu likes Some grooviness

Theres actually a thing called a seal saver for those shifter seals. It's something like a disc which prevents the shifter body moving ecentricly and the seal losing contact. 

*so I heard, second hand.

I saw a graveyard cars video where they built a huge steel jig as long as the car.

They go way hard. Even have electric door holding jigs :-D that’s what apprentices are for

Fuck a duck.

How much car are you expecting to get back from the blasters?! :shock:

I'm super impressed that you don't seem to see any of that as a big deal. Its a very cool car to be saving.

My prediction is 3 new ‘compromised’ areas breaking through/pinholeing. Smaller than my palm?

I said don’t bother touching the crusty bits or surrounding areas as that’s going to end up on the cutting room floor anyway :-)

I imagine you will be able to buy almost every part you need to repair for this? 

That will make the job 11ty billion times quicker and easier. Especially with large and involved repairs

Talking from experience in the matter
