About a mile later I got a very satisfying crunch sound. “I guess its broken now,” I thought to myself.
King Transmission called today and they will be getting started building my transmission. I’m very excited that I will have a fully functional transmission. The Plan The plan has been to minimize my vehicle downtime. So I went to Rover Cannibal and picked up a core. I took it to King Transmission on Classen in[…]
