I learned this weekend that Gourd Souter did a seminar at Celina
showing a complete tranny rebuild. Did anyone by chance happen to
video tape this and if so could post it somewhere? I've got some video
editing eqipment and would be glad to transfer someone doing this into
a dvd or downloadable format for all to share in.

If not, many of us do it yourselfer's aren't afraid to enter the
tranny with a little educational assistance before breaking into one
of these. Has anyone (per Gourd again?) considered making a how to
video on rebuilding one and selling it? I'd certianly be willing to
buy a video showing this. It'd also go a long way to helping the next
generation of Amphi enthusiast's in years to come.

Thanks in advance!

Best method for rebuilding your tranny is to call Dave at Midwest
Amphicar.

Seriously, full tranny rebuilds require tolerances and precision
beyond the skills of most backyard mechanics. If You are just doing
synchros then OK, beyond that then proceed with caution.

My tranny was sent by previous owner to be professionally rebuilt by
a reputable tranny shop. When finished, it had 4 reverse speeds and
1 forward speed. The owner gave up, bought a new one, and this one
went off to Dave. Turns out the pumkin was installed upside down or
backwards.

Cheers,

Mike
