    Those bags cost about $4 each for 18x24. I suspect there is a cheaper system for companies that use a lot of them or maybe have a foam machine to fill their own bags.

    You complain a lot. Consider adding something positive to the forum
     
  3. Are you mistaken in your belief that your comment added something positive?

    Obviously you haven't followed his posts for very long. gimpyshotrods has helped and answered questions for lots of Hambers. You should pick on someone worthy of your wrath, not gimpyshotrods.

  5. Your last post that you actually started yourself was almost 6 years ago. Your contributions on other threads aren't really much of anything notable. I would reasonably think that having to buy a transmission online, due to lack of time to assemble one on a deadline, only to have it destroyed in transit, would be something to complain about. *shrug*

    My guess, because of how well the pieces fit, was that they have their own machine. It looked to me like they shot the foam after they boxed the tranny.

    There has to be a site just to post this exact thing to, only having to do with shippers. I can't beat that, but I've have my share of mess-ups with them. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    "You would think that ordering a generic TH400 would be a "no-brainer", but no...."

    Well it was a "no-brainer", but the "no-brainer" was the guy who packaged the transmission.

  12. I ordered my Muncie from 'David's 4 Speeds' in Wisconsin, about 1,800 miles from me. It arrived in a crate, so heavily built, that I've been using it for a step stool & I'm 300 + lbs :confused: - The trans is perfect after 5 years....not so much the rear tires:D
     
  13. Replacement should be there by now -
    What's up?
     
  14. I worked in an engine shop about 7 years that used those foam filled bags. It was a roll of bags on a machine that fed them through one at a time. Two large barrels held the liquid that when mixed, would turn to the foam and harden after expanding. It worked well, however there were more then a few times when the bags would jam or not feed correctly and the foam would go all over. That shit was very messy and hard to clean up.

    Some rubbing compound and that should buff right out.

    Also, since they probably have some kind of shipping insurance coverage, that means they sold 2 transmissions... one to you, and one to the carrier. Win-win for Jegs :-(
