Transmission options ...

So here I am again at crossroads, I have to get a new/rebuilt transmission and t-case as the ones I have right now are giving the obvious signs of wear. The problem I have also aside from the obvious, is that the two units are unmarked with no serial numbers for ID. Both have been buffed out of existence.

So here I am looking at getting those from the best place I know : Ashcroft. Witch brings to ask here if there are other alternatives to getting as close to new units before I pull the trigger on my order. I know that the Ashcroft units are a little more pricey with the shipping and all but you know that you get solid quality, something that is really dear to me.

Thanks everyone and feel free to post you opinion on the subject.

Pat

I had Rob D. (Roadsiderob) rebuild my LT95. It is a thing of beauty. Check with him first.

FlaD90, I'm in the midst of a complete vehicle rebuild. Not done yet, seems to be just above a snails pace. The tranny and xfer came dry. I have a bunch of MTL and MT90 and the shelf, ala the viscosity recommendations from AULRO.

Just make sure that whoever does rebuild it knows about all the rev'd parts, Dave is really good about sharing information, if I needed my R380/LT230 done I would probably spend extra on Ashcroft specifically because of Dave's community friendly attitude, something nearly unique amongst UK vendors.

I just spoke with Dave this afternoon. His suggestion was a later R-380, hands down, as the best choice. As long as it's got Suffix L or newer.
