Damage caused by faulty pump in transmission I’m told. (Too much pressure)

blew the end apart! Sent back to Yank to be repaired, cut & cleaned.

Transmission all crated up and on its way to Century Transmissions in Texas.

Should handle up to 1000 HP with new build.

GOOD TIME TO REPLACE OLDER WARN PARTS. Lower rear A arms are no longer serviceable (ball joints) GM’s idea!

So now you have to replace the entire assembly. (Fronts are still serviceable)

With drivers rear hub needing replacement I’ve now replaced all 4 hubs.

 All parts have been ordered,

Now we have to wait........................

 

While I was waiting I took my BillyBoat FUSION exhaust back to manufacture for some repairs of some cracked gussets. 

They were VERY helpful and gave me ZERO HASSELS for warranty repairs.

My BB exhaust are 7+ years old!

They truly stand behind their products. 

 

WILL UPDATE AS ALL WORK PROGRESSES

Sometimes it pays to keep a car 100% stock or slightly modded but I hope all surgery goes well so I/we can see your happy mug tearin' up the roads again.

Well, the broken metal from the torque converter caused the total failure of the transmission pump and soliniod. This upped the bill $1000. However

the transmission is finished and on its way back to AZ.

THERE IS A REASON RED IS THE FASTEST COLOR, 

but it doesn’t come without its problems!

 

Did Phil put you up to this post?

That sucks but hopefully you'll be back pounding on defenseless tires soon.

Transmission was picked up @ Century Transmission yesterday and due to arrive Thursday at freight carriers Hub in Pheonix.  All other parts have either arrived or will be in my hands today. 

Im looking forward to having “Big Red”

back on the road soon to be able to enjoy the upcoming spring weather 🌞

Oram. 

So that’s John Oram? I’m guessing...

im guessing this is one of your builds and if I’m able to run on this private track day I’m probably gonna be slower that John Orams CPR built car?

Thus proving that.......... ?

But who knows..........right?

Someone will ALWAYS be faster but I really don’t have anything to prove.

Yes, it’s fun to compete but I’ve found that I can’t get on anybody’s track without a roll bar/cage system. I’m not interested in going there. Too much time and money for too small a return.

Yes that John, he's mentioned he's asked you to come out for a rental. Nice thing about our rentals is no cage, I trap 162 with no chute and no guff. It's all in good fun man, plenty of return for no tech and no getting booted like stupid Wildhorse will do.

BILLYBOAT finished repairing some small cracks on a few gussets of my Fusion exhaust. They even cleaned and polished them up!

I’m very pleased with the continued service I received even after 6+ years of being on the Vette.

Well, if you didn't drive it like you stole it, maybe Phil wouldn't have to work on your car as much.  I know, what's the fun in that if you didn't drive it like you stole it.  Hope to see you on the road Sat.
