    Consumer advice - tranny problems

    Hey Ladies.

    So I've had an ongoing transmission issue that has kept one of my vehicles off the road for a while - (also life getting in the way - and I've been lazy cunt)

    B1 is the supplier of the adapter kit on the back of the trans - so has experience/knowledge apparently.

    Time line -

    Broke - 14/1/2017 - Grindy grindy - sluggish to move.
    23/1/2017 - pan off, full of bits (yay)

    No one local wants to touch it - no experience/interest, so B1 offers to rebuild the box (with reasonable estimate of price) - so we remove and ship to B1.
    16/3/2017 - box actually got to B1
    Turns out box is massively destroyed - bearing pieces through everything - requiring many many parts - which are sourced - and then there's some delays before I can get an invoice out of them to pay - to get it shipped back.
    4/6/2017 - box back in, 2nd & 6th not engaging in any meaningful manner.
    7/8/2017 - after going back and forth with B1 - at their request - scantooled - manually actuated solenoids - activation sounds normal.
    8/12/2017 - box back out - B1 talked me though pulling it partially apart - found fucked piston seal. - B1 sent parts & filters - refitted - new fluid.
    23/12/2017 - while refitting box Mate#1 damages a water fitting -so needed to fix that - Christmas etc.
    17/1/2018 - trans back in, chirps second on nearly no throttle - take for drive - 2nd goes away again, codes etc - same as previous issue.
    10/2/2018 - pan off, checked for gunge in line pressure control solenoids, re-assemble, no change.
    26/4/2018 - explained the current situation to B1 - "Ok, let me see what I can do."

    Months later - nothing.

    pray for lightning strike - fuck you god - y u no listen?

    While completing morning ritual of screaming at car to fix itself - rupture some bits - requiring surgery and recovery time - ship entire car to GC2 - please fix my cunt.

    GC2 - does more diag with TC3 internal issue, gotta come out and apart - pulls trans and sends to TC4.

    TC4 disassembles - finds some wear on the pump gears & pump body full of rust & debris - does't look like the pump came apart during the rebuild - likely the debris still in the journals etc caused issues.

    So I'm up for more cash etc to fix the cunt. (my mum asked if it was ever worth it on such an old car - lolz)


    What is a reasonable ask of the original trans rebuilder?


    I know GC2 & TC4 are on here - if you feel the urge to chime in - that's fine with me - otherwise I won't out you.

        Because Tranny can also mean Transsexual.

                  what car and trans?

                  id be expecting original guy to pick up something, but whether he does is his perogative. i rekon 6 months of salty posts and pf lynch mobbing followed by you paying for a full gearbag.

                    Can you get another box from the US or Cananadia?
                    Keep this one for spares or something. Id be sending the first guy the bill from rectifying or replacing it.
                    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

                              Yes but he is in Canberra and it isn't inside powering a garbage truck.
