$265 parts and labor for replacing a fly wheel
is that pretty good or am i getting taken?
Automatic or standard?
Whats it in?
probably couldn't get me to do it for that....
well since that involves pulling the engine or trans, that's a DAMN good price. too bad he's not around me...i could afford to be lazy and pay someone to swap my engines in my daily at that price
its a 71 buick electra
with a 455 and a th400? auto
yeah, that's 3 bills worth of work any day of the week....
Sounds real fair to me.
hell, that's cheap for just labor!
f'wheel has to be 65 bucks alone...
Sounds Like a great deal !
Probably about right. You don't have to completely remove the engine or transmission to replace a flexplate on a GM automatic. You can take the tranny bolts out and "cheat" the transmission back far enough to do the job.
sounds good, I got a price quote of $750 for a new HD clutch installed (same work process and time involved), half that was the parts, the other labor. Decided to do it myself for that price
Thats a great price if hes gonna get under that monster and yank the trans.
That flywheel is probably pricey too.
been there done. I bought the tools with the extra money. like getting a free bike lift, impact wrench and big ass sockets.
