High 5 on that work on the Chevelle. I had a guy ask me on Camaros.net about Muncie trannies where I would take mine to get rebuilt, cause when he wound up his car to redline the clutch gave out when the stupid weights off a center force pressure plate broke off and jammed his tranny in 1 gear. He thought since it needs a new clutch kit why not check out the health of the Muncie. I told him I don’t trust any shop to work on my stuff and I do it myself. He sounded shocked that someone would know this kind of sh!t and be doing this from their home. But in ‘81 I took a night school course on rebuilding the Muncie trans along with an automatic tranny. So he asked if I could just look at it and tell him what it needed. I could pretty much tell what was needed by just looking through the side cover and shifting it and looking at the worn engagement edges. He then talked about driving to Syracuse NY to a tranny place and stay in town for a night so he could get the trans rebuilt. He got an estimate and I guess he didn’t like their price so he asked if I could do it and he’d pay me. I said, hmm, I don’t know. Well ok and I told him you can help me by cleaning the parts. So I took it apart and told him what it needed and he ordered the parts. He bought me supper up the street and also paid me. He was happier than pig sh!t. I even said I’d help him install the tranny which I did where he had it on a lift at a friends place who had a huge shop at the end of his property. We started to hang out a bit, he invited my wife and I over for dinner and we returned the invite as well. Had beer and wings at a wings place one other night. Went to some cruises and shows and also visited Legendary Auto one day to drool over the cars. I spoke with Pete Klute who still remembered me from 25 yrs ago. So this hobby also gets you to meet different people. I’ve met up with several Nasty members that live close by and enjoy checking out their rides and fixing the odd problem for them. One of the Vendors I worked with at a Data Centre told me his friend has a 70 Chevelle and it’s not running right and the guy thinks it’s carb related and whether I could look at it. I said sure, drop by anytime. I’ve been working on cars since 1970 which is when I started my 1st yr in HS Auto Shop among the other shop classes I took and still enjoy it.
