I need an R380 core
I want to replace my R380 transmission because the output shaft is shot. I'm looking all over for a rebuilt tranny (might as well fix it for the long term), but can't find one. I called Rob at Southwest Rovers (he did the t-case), and he can do it but he doesn't have a core. With shipping him my tranny, it would take about a three week turnaround, which is too long of a down time. Rovers North is about six weeks from getting one.
I'm still calling places, and I have the option of having a local tranny shop do it, but I was wondering if anybody has a core that would ship it to Southwest Rovers for me. Obviously I'd pay for the shipping. That way, I could drive the Rover whilst the core is being rebuilt and shipped, and it would only be down a couple days during replacement. I could then ship my core to the original owner, to Southwest, or even keep it and rebuild it myself. Know anybody?
