Swampu,
We occasionally rebuild a customer's transmission instead of installing a reman part. When we do this, the labor cost is fixed. In our case with a forklift, there would be a rebuild kit including all of the seals, discs and bearings. A reman convertor would also installed. Any additional "hard parts" necessary would be approved, the replaced. Having said all this, the one constant on price is the labor. The tear down, rebuild would be the same since we wouldn't disassemble it part of the way till we saw a problem and stop. There would be too much risk that other worn seals/ hard parts would fail soon afterward. So a labor price, even if only replacing the seals, should be predictable. If you are thinking a half day labor, at say $90, then your labor cost would be around $360. This seems very low to me, so I would consider getting a labor estimate before you begin. Heck, R&R is the hardest part. And you are handling that. Also be sure to clean or replace any external cooler hoses and cooler to remove any contaminates.

Forkliftt, thanks for the advice on replacing the hoses and clean the cooler. I drained all the oil out of the sump when I pulled it out and it was clean as a whistle. I'll find out monday morning the "bad" news. It will be nice though to get it done and get her going. This is the last piece of the puzzle besides an overheat problem with the starboard genset. Might be cruising before hurricane season yet!!!!!

I bet you will! We're going to be moving over to the new Gulfport Marina in the next 1-2 weeks. Might get to see you around there.

Not yet, I'll be pulling that tomorrow morning. Looks like about 8 or 10 bolts and it should slide out I hope.

new Gulfport Marina

Great spot , the lifestyle of Key West , small village , laid back and friendly , many great resturants and library.

But close to St Pete or Tamps to spend boat bucks .

"The library is gone the way of the hurricane."

Not any more , it might have blown away at sometime , but a fine new building is within walking distance of the harbor. At least it was there in April. Free Wi Fi.

Wow, I'll have to check it out, get it? Last time I was in gulfport harbor I was diving boats for a living, scrubbing bottoms and changing zincs. The harbor master died not to long ago. I forgot his name but if you were there and any point in the last 30 something years you met him. Maybe the old building is what is gone. There was a lot of debate on what to do with it.
