Got some good news. A guy out of Tulsa has a complete transmission out of his running/driving 57 ford that heís gonna let me have. He swapped over to a 351 and AOD a couple of years ago and itís been sitting in his garage since. Just need to get it shipped to me which isnít as bad on price as I thought it would be. Iíll still be looking for another tc for the trans I already have but seeing as I have a few other Y-blocks without transí Iíll be able to use it eventually.

Bummer about the TC.
Good score on the new one though.

Got the transmission all tore apart and cleaned. Waiting for a few more pieces and then I can start putting it back together. Should work like a brand new tranny when I am finished. Might have found a place to rebuild the converter but they need me to bring it to them to see if they can or not. Iím still getting the other transmission because I donít have one for my other 312.

Transmission is almost back together. Everything but the front pump. Mine was really gouged out so I found a good used one that needed only a minor rebuild. Bushing and seal should be here on Tuesday and Iíll get it put together and installed. Today I put the first few coats of primer on the case, bellhousing, and tail shaft. When the primer dries Iíll get a coat of black on her. Once sheís all finished, Iíll get her back in the car. I was able to find a used, rebuildable converter out of Washington, which should come sometime this week. Iíll get it pulled apart, inspected, and resealed if it checks out. Then the engine will go back in and I can test run it on stands as thereís a bunch of snow on the ground currently.
