Good recommendation for transmission repair in NJ

I have a 94 D90 3.9L r380 that needs the synchros replaced in 2nd and 3rd gear. Anyone have good experience with shops in NJ that do good work?

Call Lee at 201 385 0333 He is in Dumont, NJ. You will probably have to leave a message.

It appears that their former partner made this bogus page http://www.importspecialist.net/ him and Vinne (in Paramus) had some sort of business together and they have now split.

I would recommend Lee's work. For reference call Land Rover in Paramus and talk to the parts counter and ask who they recommend for you tranny work on a Defender....

Also check these guys out. http://www.europeanexchange.com/ they get a lot of work from dealerships.... prices are fair. There are many people on the board here that could help you drop the transmission if needed.

Thanks. I'll check into it. I need someone to look at the transfer as well, seems I can only get it into 4wL, but not too sure on that.

One quick question for the guys on this thread. I've only had my D90 for about 2 months. Is this truck in 4wd H all the time, or do you transfer from 2wd into 4w H or 4w L? Interestingly enough I'can't find an answer to this and I don't know any other Defender owners in the area to ask. It might make sense as to why I can get to neutral and 4wd L.

Truck is in 4H all the time ... their is no 2WD ... unless you pop the half shafts out!

You can lock the diff between front and back ... that's when the light on the dash comes on ... you shouldn't drive on the road like that ...

You want High Range, Unlocked for most driving. If memory serves that means the shifter is back and to the right. Make sure the locker light on the dash goes out.

Thanks for the link. I've been through the pdf workshop manuals and never thought to select the one that says Defender TD5. Very helpful indeed!

Hey Don, sorry fo the delay, sounds great and Tom at Foreign Cars is great. Did a great job replacing my clutch master and slave cylinder, tie rod assembly. If you see a 94 yellow D90 with fiberglass lid and safari cage around town, be sure to honk My D90 saved my tail last Sunday when I unsuspectingly hit a major flooded section of 34 in Wall. I love my truck
