    I really would like to learn how to rebuild an auto cause I opened the Nissan one and really couldn’t figure out how it works. Not so simple like a combustion engine atleast to me. I do have an idea now that I did atleast open one of whats what still don’t know how to fix them.

    I’d imagine a GM tranny would be about the best to learn on being so common and cheap to fix

    those belts are cald bands in the 200 or 2004r they are only used in manual ! and 2nd and forth the car would still drive if this was bad it just would not shift most likely the problem will be with your forward clutches the directs (3rd and reverse are probally not to bad because you said it still worked in reverse a 2004r has a overdrive planetary and drum in front of the direct drum either one of these tranys require special tools to build

    Is the Universal Spring Compressor tool is the only special tool you need to in order to rebuild a trainee,I have a 350LT1 motor what would be the best Torgue Converter in the best High Performance shift kit to put in the trainee.The motor came equipt with 330 HP in the crate brand new

    Getting the snap ring off is the easy part, getting it back on isn’t.

    You need a teflon seal installer/sizer and a pump puller is handy.

    I made my own spring compressor with all thread, a old timing gear, two bolts. Did not look too good, but I rebuilt a bunch of C6 transmissions with it. Worked fine. Pressed in a lot of bushings and bearings using all thread, nuts and washers also. Removed and installed a lot of snap rings with a pair of needle nose pliers with the ends filed down.
    Never had any of those fancy tools, but the transmissions always ran just fine after a rebuild.

    You should consider the fact that more and more mechanical devices such as transmitions are being made “non servicable” or the cost of rebuilding is near the cost of replacing.

    Wish I had one of these when I rebuilt a Powerglide in my 65 Impala in the early 90’s. So freakin simple in design.


    My oldest brother is a Transmission specialist. if you’re REALLY serious about it, you should go to UTI – Universal Technical Institute (a trade school), then from there you’ll have to work in a shop, i’d recommend doing something like working for a trucking company or Allison. if you’re gonna do it, be good at it. then again… he told me not to be a mechanic. but that’s the path you should go he said.

    He worked for Ford, Toyota, and now he just built a 10,000 sq.ft. shop with a few lifts and started his own business… if you can handle a boss, he said the money was good at ford and toyota, he just isn’t good with talking stuff out.

  11. FUCKINROCKIT says:

    Listen to boxwrench. just because more and more tranny’s are being built non-serviceable, doesn’t mean the old ones are going away, and you’ll always have guys that can’t figure out something, that will come to you with parts and money asking for your expertise. definitely won’t have to worry about that in your whole lifetime (running out of customers).

  12. kevgoods says:

    I gotta disagree with that, UTI is not the way to go. Spend that money on getting customers instead. Limit your expenses, all you need is about $2,500 worth of tools & a $500/month hole in the wall garage. As long as you are HONEST & RELIABLE the business will flow & you will move up FAST.

  13. FUCKINROCKIT says:

    My brother worked for Ford and Toyota. when working for major manufacturers you get computer based tools you can’t buy, and since most cars have computers… also, $2500 ? He has a floor tool that costs that much. he’s already invested well over $150,000 in car/marine/truck tools, a 10,000 sq.ft shop, and 3 hoists of different weight components. oh, and he’s pulling in 10 times more than working for Ford and Toyota combined as lead specialist.

    Guys you should sell those DVD on! im from latin america and is really difficult to buy some products in some webs! i already have the basic engine building and i need almost all the transmissions DVDs! cheers!

    i remove them without any tools like this and have had no problems. i am going to be doing a video of a th400 rebuild with a hughes race kit. red alto frictions and kolene steels Kevlar bands and also a manual reverse shift valve body. doing automatic transmissions are easy once you do a couple of them you will be right on your way. only tool i suggest you get is the transmission holder that goes in a vice bolted to a bench so you dont have the tranny rolling around.
