    Forget about it, im reading a thread of someone who documented his entire rebuild, i think ill pass this sucks, some of you may remember that i bought a "built" transmission last year, Ive not put it in yet, but i want to look it over before i install it. But i think im going to have to pay someone

    lol, i would jump in if i had even had the time for my car to be down, but when i only get one full day a week at home with my family, (wife and son), i cant really be working on my car.

    It sucks, but im going to have to pay someone to do this

    I understand completely. Auto trans is the only thing on a car that I will not rip into myself. I don't have any experience with autos and am afraid of screwing something up that will ruin it.

    Go buy a practice junk auto trany.. Tear it down, properly... If half way through the tear down you're still feeling froggy about diy'in it I'd say give it a shot.. Good way find out whether it's for you or not. If you get in over your head you can always take your stuff to a shop for proper assembly.. I can tell you you'll need tools, some most likely ones you don't own...yet..

    Is the manual easier than an auto to do yourself?

    Absolutely. First transmission I rebuilt was the Muncie for our '74 Corvette. They are quite simple and just plain cool to work on imo.
