Ordered rebuilt ZF4HP22 from Rover land Parts. Found tranny shop locally that has done RR, Volvo, BMW, Mercedes rebuilds to replacement. Shipped tranny to shop, when it arrived discovered the torque converter was not in the tranny/crate. Had to wait a day for it to be sent again. Once it arrives, shop has it for a couple days, refits new tranny, new gear oil, I go pick it up. Drives GREAT home on the 25 mile journey. Shifts like brand new through all gears. Go out today, jump in, put it in reverse and it slams into reverse hard, but reverse works. I drive it around to a few errands, and reverse again and it seems ok, now that its warm. Drive another hour around and when I get home I park it, and put in reverse again to see if it would shift into that gear smoothly, and I hear an awful noise as it goes into reverse. I proceed to drive in reverse and it barely reverses. It will go, but its clearly slipping.
Shop that did work only covers their rebuilds, RL Parts only covers parts, no labor. So looking at another 10+ hour job at $85/hr to get this removed/replaced and fixed, IF it can be. I'm over it and ready to get back to something else.
Ready to cut my losses, its for sale.
To the new owners: I can supply a good Transmission, remanufactured converter, new kick down cable, filter/pan gasket, new mounts, etc. Even have a LT230 for transfer case conversion if so desired.

Tell me about it. I'm just the one that paid for tranny and install, and reverse doesn't work right. I don't see the shop throwing their hands up saying "It was our fault we'll take care of it." And RL Parts would probably supply any parts deemed bad, but getting there and back is 85/hr. It took 10 hrs to get old out and new in, so at least that same amount of time plus repair. I can't justify it. I took the risk, didn't work out. Someone who has the time/expertise to pull tranny and sort out the reverse issue is going to get a great deal.

Sorry to hear about your project truck. I know your pain, though I'm too stubborn to quit on my RRC, too much damn sentimental value tied to it. I think you're fortunate that you can cut bait and spare your bank account.

Matt,

Thats a tough spot. Not sure what your total $ is at this point, but at least you know what you've got and know what needs to be done. A different project truck will involve the same sorting process...some good and some bad. My thoughts here would be to suggest that you find a project that is mechanically sound and only needs cosmetics. As cosmetics won't keep you off the trail. Pretty and clean is not practical for a trail rig. Case in point is my Hunter which has a bunch of trail rash and dented panels...who cares. If your trying to get away from automatics then you might need to go to a earlier Series truck or Defender, or go the way of a Jeep or Toyota....say it ain't so...Your situation is not the norm as very few LRs have trani trouble, especially if serviced regularly. You've come this far. Maybe you just need to take a breath and think about it a while.

I'm off the ledge. Took it back to tranny shop this morning. Drove great until it got hot then reverse started acting up. Left her there and they will dig into it next week. I'm going to have whatever it needs fixed to correct. In the meantime I leave for Palm Springs, CA Monday for some R&R. Talk about great timing!

Man I hate to hear that, pulling transmission is a pita for sure. I was pretty down on my RRC recently, did some work and now it makes me smile again.

Nothing like some sand to take your mind off the transmission issues in VA!

Update: Rover Land parts is rebuilding another tranny for defective replacement and will be shipping it up for install. I'm impressed with their customer service so far. Hope to have this all sorted in the coming week or so.
California was a blast and much needed! Another pic of the fun in the dunes.
