Just to be clear - So far Ken's on schedule and always available when I call. I'm not unhappy with his service, so far. I only called once the first week to make sure he had the trans. Since then, I've been assuming he's doing what I asked him to.
I think we're unsure on the 4th gear because of we didn't know what was in there and we didn't know what kind of shape it would be in. Do I Leave the stock 4th gear or do I do the bus 4th? Not sure I want to go clear up to the Freeway Flyer.
I went into this rebuild with eyes wide open. I know I could have gone with any number of 'ready made' units out of LA. I trust Terry & Tony's judgement and went with Ken. I also assumed 3 to 4 weeks meant 4 to 5. We're just starting week 4. I'm not worried yet. I'm only afraid to call because I'm afraid he'll say "it's going to cost more than we'd thought' or 'oh, *that* one..." We're supposed to touch base today. I'll let you know what I find out.
The most recent decision I'm trying to make is rear disks? Or should stick with the drums? I already have a dual master cylinder, so it should be a straight swap. I already have the woven stainless steel rear lines to swap over. With the trans out and empty, right now would be the time to switch to disks if I'm going to do it. Kustom1warehouse is the only place I've found who actually lists the AC Industries, 0 offset wide 5, with e-break in stock. I'd go with that to match what's on the front. Another $380.00 is kind of steep, so I don't know.
These cars are so light, I'm not sure I really need the rear disks. Any thoughts?
