Re: Blown AT 545

So I don't "need" the special tools? What are they?

Re: Blown AT 545

The only one that really helps is the seal installing tools. These are specific to each transmission though. They make putting the pistons back in SUPER easy. You can do it with a feeler gauge instead and just GENTLY work them in. That method has worked for as long as automatic transmissions have been around. It just isn't as easy as using the $300 OTC seal installer set.

Re: Blown AT 545

Well I bit the bullet today and bought a re manufactured allison at 545. $1295 after core rebate, tax, freight included. $650 core deposit. By far the best deal I found for a factory reman with a 2 year unlimited warranty. Thanks for the heads up experience, may wait to rebuild my own transmission when I'm not going to drive the vehicle across the country. http://www.arsco.com they ship fast too.
