Post 2nd Hand TH350 pan contents

I bought a 2nd hand Trans today and thought I'd have a look at the state of it before I put it in my 62 Belair 4Dr Sedan.

There was a smallish pile of papery black mush (about 1 1/2 inch dia and 14 inch deep) below the where the filter is, and also some really thick greasy stuff down one side. The trans fluid looks dark when poured into a bucket but OK on the dipstick. It does smell odd though although I dont know what "Good" trans fluid smells like :}

I'm told that the trans came from a running Corvette (71 I think) but am treating this information with the scepticism it deserves.

Should I just get it rebuilt? if so any Idea how much to expect to pay for a rebuild in the US (so I can compare to here) I take it that it is not something to be tackled by a DIY'er

Finally, if the Trans is rebuilt I guess a rebuilt Torque convertor is in order too?

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Id say sounds like a rebuild,bad fliud smells kind of burnt,dark fluid not good should be red.if you have it rebuit put a new converter in it.I think the cost around here is around $400 not sure I do my own.but I do know parts for a rebuild is around $100 bucks.hope this helps (wrenchturner)PS if your much mechanicly incline you can order a step by step video.Technical video 1-888-785-2604 fall creek,wi 54742-4813

It might still operate but it sounds like its pulling the ol' guts in the pan trick.I've had um that bad and still run but they won't perform.
Also if you reuild it replace the converter.Summit and jegs both sell mild stall converters for under $150

Thanks for the replies guys I'm having the trans and Torque convertor rebuilt. Youre right though I want to fit this once and forget it (apart from routine maintainance of course) so best to do it right first time eh?
