Got the call from the dealer about 12:15: Truck is ready. They got the transmission first thing this morning, and since the old one was already out, relatively simple matter to put the new one in, replace the cooler (old one full of torque converter bits, I’m sure), flush the cooler lines (same reason), top off the fluids, and ta-da! Ready to go.
Now I just gotta figure out how I’m going to get there. And then pay for it all. Heh.
ETA: OUCH! Total is more than I thought it would be. Curses, labor charges foil me again!
Ah, well, still close to $2K less than I thought I was going to have to spend to get a bulletproof transmission.
