I agree with JeepinPete. If you're going to throw a bunch of money at old iron for a rebuild and overdrive, just swap in the newer technology from GM. The 4.8L V8, 4l60e 2WD combo in my 3" lifted...

I can understand it. I thought about it with my Jeep. Nobody seems to want it for a reasonable price and I don't want to give it away. It's going to take me a while to fix so I started thinking...

It looks like Vatozone and Checker have rebuild kits. It's hard to tell what's in them. If one of those stores has a kit close by, I'll try to check it out soon.

Apparently (this is according to...

Will do! Thanks!

I tore into the QT last night. It's amazing how much fluid they hold even after you drain them using the drain plug. Lots of little places for oil to hide, I guess.

As far...

From a lot of searching I think the governor gear issue is just because of that rear-most case bushing in the transmission. I'm betting it has walked so far that it ruined the seal(s) at the back of...

The QT does have a differential. It is shot, unfortunately. I can break it loose by hand pretty easily. It had the correct fluid in it when I changed it, but not when I drained it.

GM engine swap fuel economy?
