Hey guys. So, my short bed Honcho needs a T400 transmission rebuilt and probably needs the trans cooler in the radiator flushed. My issue I’ve run into is the truck is a work in progress and isn’t registered or insured to be on the road currently. I have gotten a quote from a local shop with an iffy reputation to do the whole job for around $1200 if I bring them the truck, but they can’t test drive it afterwords to make sure the shift points are correct and all that fun stuff. My other thought process so save a little money on labor is to pull the trans and radiator myself. Inspection plate is already out so I could have it on the ground in an hour or two. But, if I install it myself I am potentially at the mercy of installing it wrong or something being wrong with it to begin with and not find out till later or have a leg to stand on with the shop that rebuilt it. Any thoughts or ideas? The truck drives and stops as far as I have been able to move it before the last trans went. Should I stick the tires on it that it’ll have and just let a shop do all the work so I know it’ll be right when I get it back? Any of you know a local shop that has a back lot they can run it around on so it can shift? Assuming they still test transmissions by driving them haha Picture of the truck in question.
