Re: need my transmission rebuilt

Mac Van Pelt for sure. I have two of his, and many on the Great Race use him. Fair and honest in my experience.

Re: 32 body removal

I plan to use my two post lift for the heavy lifting off of the chassis. Lift and just roll chassis out from it. Was unsure best place to lift. Is a normal sized pallet with good wheels big enough?

Re: TCI chassis/ clutch

Thanks, very helpful. TCI says you can’t fit booster under floor of a 32. Seems like a hydraulic clutch would take minimal space.

Re: 1937 Ford transmission rebuild

Mac is always reasonable. I use him on a regular basis and you can't predict price until getting into the parts needed. Highly recommend based on many rebuilds.
