The only out source I did, was for removing & replacing the snycro rings, as I did not have a press at that time. That set me back $80 in labor.

Parts are another story, these puppies are not cheap, like they would a for Chevy Muncie 4spd or a Ford top loader.

I replaced all the bearings, syncro's, balk ring friction parts, snap rings, lock nuts, gaskets & seals, all has been well for 40k miles so far {still sucks to get into 1st some times, but I think that's just a 930 box for you}.

my .02 worth.

Didn't you need special fixtures to adjust the shift forks and measure back lash for the diff and stuff. Sounds like you must have done a few normal trannys before or did you go in blind on this one?
Thats a big job, congrats.
