A friend of mine owns one of these, but is not too happy with the transmission. When he starts it cold - whether he selects D, 1 or 2 - no go, but reverse works fine. If he let it idle for 10 - 15 minutes everything works perfect. Oil is new, don’t get dirty fast or have any bad smell to it. Close to nobody knows this transmission over here, neither what the problem is or where to get parts.
It is the original transmission. He has a -62 rebuilt transmission on the shelf, but it won’t fit due to differences to the crankshaft.
If the problem is outside of converter, can the intestines be transferred to the old one?
Can somebody explain, what/where is the probable cause of the problem?
Can somebody give an idea of where to get parts for transmission for decent money (well, it’s not gonna be cheap, I know that much)?
Any other good ideas?
I’ll post a picture of the car later, should it clarify the car in question.
