The Work Begins!

By GoldenGirl

The Work Begins! The new life for my Dart is beginning. My darling husband and chief mechanic took the transmission out yesterday since he had the Columbus Day holiday and nothing else lined up in the garage.

We already have the rebuild kit for the trans (904) but found out that we'll need a new torque converter. The factory original was in there but had obviously had a crack or something as there was a large weld mark around one half of it. He says the undercarriage of the Dart is in excellent condition for 35 years old.

Next steps include taking off the hood and pulling out the original 318. The 340 is waiting on the engine stand.
