So I have put over a year into putting my motor togeather and alot of money and it should be done next spring (money permitting) and I just convinced my wife to let me park the beast (78 rust.. I mean camaro) in the drive way. I would rather have it running good than looking good. So any way heres my problem or I was just wondering what's the best solution? I put all the time and tought in to the motor and forgot about the tranny. Its a th350 and It came with the car and has been sitting now for about three years but worked fine before than. Is so how much would it cost to have it checked out and rebuilt if need be. I dont want to put it in and just hope it will work.

I would say you could have her rebuilt for about $200. This is a very rough estimate on my part, as it depends on what you actually have done. If you have a shift kit put in it it'll prolly run around $400. I bought the rebuild kit for mine and had a buddy help me. Cost was just that of the rebuild kit and bit of beer as he did the rebuild for "free". Best bet is to call some places and get some estimates.

You have one big advantage rightnow and that is you can bring the tranny in without having to pay to have it removed from the car. A real top of the line rebuild could cost as much as $600, but a reseal and inspection could be as low as $200-$300. It all depends on what you want and need done to the tranny, if going to make a lot of power and will abuse the car some than I would say spend the extra money and get high quality heavey duty parts installed.
