Funny you say that... I havent been able to find a motor I like yet so i stopped by the machine shop and local automotive trade school today. No luck for me.
Ive found alot of deals with tranny included for 1200-1500
I have my brand newly rebuilt reverse pattern manual TH400 waiting for the engine I buy. Thinking of selling it to add to my budget.. Since I started looking ive saved alittle more cash and now have 1000.
Trying to figure out how much i can sell my 400 for, I need to pull the pan and check valve body brand. lol it has 140$ worth of fluid alone. 45 minutes on it before I threw the rod.
