Art carr builds Good trannies?

So I debated between an art carr tranny and one from DennisR. Low and behold they are one and the same. Art uses specalty parts from Dennis when he builds his street/strip trannies. Allen from Art carr called and asked for my VIN number. I am not really sure why. Anyway they say I will take 1-2 weeks and I hve to pick it up at a frieght station.

P.S. How long should a tranny take if I have a lift and shop tools at my disposal? Mind you I have never done a tranny before!

Well, When I swapped my transmission, It took my father and I about 4 hours to drop the transmisison (the second time), replace the rear main seal (the second time), and put the transmission back in.

BTW, I didn't have a lift. I had the car securely up on four ramps (facing opposite directions), jacked the car up higher to roll the transmission out, and lowered it back down on the ramps.

Some say that Art-Carr is the best and have been for many years. They specialize in racing transmissions. I had Art-Carr build my transmission to the Jerry article with their own additions back when the ink was still wet on the article.

One time my cooler hose broke and I drove it out of fluid. I replaced the hose with metal, refilled it and there were no problems.

I've had my tranny rebuilt with parts from Art Carr
http://www.mn12racing.com/docs/AOD_PARTS_INFO.doc
and according to the tranny guy (has been working with trannys
since the 60's) the parts where the best he had ever seen..

Wow! Thanks for the info. Due to my low reading understanding when it comes to mechanical writing, I didn't understand why it was so good to get a tranny from them. Thanks Eric
