I mean I don't mind doing a tune up, I don't want to be swapping a tranny.
I used to do ALL my own work. I even welded new cross members into my 250S. I just don't have time for it anymore.

That's where I got it, but I don't trust it. I had it translate some stuff from Spanish which I new to be awkwardly phrased.
