I rest my case. A rebuilt 71C will go for $750 sans shipping. There weren't as many CR2's built so not much of a demand. Components such as planetaries, input shafts, control valves are expensive to machine. I suspect TM is one of several places in US still making parts.

(Thanks for taking the time to confirm)

You rest your case? I wouldn't want you as my defense lawyer.

For those that have the models where there is no direct replacement, id rather pay double the rebuild price vs remount the engine and reprop. Plus then should match tbe other side as well... big dollars and headaches. Even if the rebuild ended up double the new transmission, might be very welcomed.
