Does anyone have a recomendation for a transmission rebuild of a 53 3100 3 speed? Mine is pretty well shot and want to have it done right.

Thanks for the help

These transmissions are very simple to work on. You can easily do the rebuild yourself if interested. Many of the vendors carry the kits and overhaul manuals. I did mine several years back and it was very, very easy.

If you decide not to rebuild the transmission yourself, look for transmission shops in your area that have been in business for a long time. That is how I have found good shops in my area (two since the 50's, one since the 60's). In southern California, a rebuild cost $200 to $300 which includes the rebuild kit. Parts like gears cost extra and may take time to find. If your transmission is in very bad shape, it may be cheaper to find a good used one where the seller knows the condition.

Good luck.
