chevy 350 transmission?

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a '95 Tahoe and yes it has over 200000 miles so it was just a matter of time for the tranny to go. I got the truck for a great price and I really like it. Is it better to throw a scrap yard tranny in it and hope for the best or buy a new refurbished one for a few bucks more. I believe its the 4L60e tranny.

I did a bit of quick searching the local scrap yards around my place. A tranny for that puppy runs anywhere from 4 - 6 hundo, with 30 day warranty, depending on miles on the trans.

Re-mans run anywhere from 12 - 22 hundo, depending on where you get it.

If you're anything like me you'll be tossing the 600 dollar tranny in it and driving until the doors fall off. Weld em back on and keep on driving. Add in another hundo for filters and fluid which you'll be paying weather you put in a re-man or scrap yard trans.

Granted, I have no idea how much you paid for the vehicle, how many miles you plan on putting on it, or how hard you work it.

do it yourself or pay for labor makes some difference. You can buy 2 or 3 scrap trannies for the price of rebuilt if you do it yourself. If paying for labor, not so much.

    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?
