Any Local Manual Transmission Rebuilders? - March 28, 2012, 09:51 AM

I think I have a syncro/blocker ring set going bad and I was wondering if anyone knew of a good local person/shop that could take care if the job. I have found a few good shops I can ship the transmission to, but I would prefer not to have my car down for a month. Most of the local places I call seem to only work on automatics and donít seem very comfortable touching my trans (even the dealer did not sound confident).

The transmission is a T-56.

Thanks in advance for your help,

-Thomas

The guy I bought it from let the clutch fluid run low and I thought a flush of the clutch and trans would fix my minor issue. It still bumps into second though, so I would rather get it fixed than ignore it since I plan on keeping the car.

Briscoe transmissions in woodbridge rebuilt my t-56 a couple of years ago. I had a bad 3rd gear syncro and replaced some other parts

Good plan. Better to have it fixed now rather wait for it to get worse and potentially ruin something else.

This a CTS-V? How far do you want to drive it to have work done? I have a V and my local guy does all my work.

Yeah, it is an '04 V. Who is your guy and has he worked on t-56 transmissions before? I don't mind making the drive if it can be done relatively quickly. I also have no issues helping out with the labor, I just don't want to take on a job like this without someone experienced in manual transmission work to walk me through it.

BBR6 Ė Iíll check out Briscoe too. Thanks for the info. I assume you were/are happy with the work they did.

I have an 05, The shop I take my car to is Cumberland Valley Transmissions in Hagerstown. I am sure they can handle your tranny. Give them a Call @ 301-739-8449 and talk to Mike, He's the owner/Trans guy.

I was thinking of going here for DIY removal and taking the trans to a shop to make sure things are taken out and put back with a torque wrench.
