I'll keep my eyes peeled for any plugs down here. I still kick myself about this old fart down south of Chehalis WA. that had over ten acres of nothing but old M135 trucks and parts. He was going to give me some great deals if I took a large portion of his parts. The sad part is I said no. He's long gone now and who knows what happened to all the trucks and parts. Probably melted down long ago.I have 2 unknown transmissions sitting on a pallet that would like some warmer weather. I offered one to Montana as a Christmas gift last spring so if you're not finding something to work on, we should chat about a transport plan. I'd even give them a ride to Lethbridge, slip them in your truck and eat about $100 in appetizers, steak and creme brule' in front of you so you feel good about a free transmission. I just look forward to more pictures of a hydromatic tear-down.
There are 2 transmissions on shop floors not far from me, one is a take out and one is a rebuild that has been sitting in its crate for a long time. The guys were pricing them around $750 as a buddy price. I still have 3 in parts trucks, 4 in salvageable trucks, 1 as a donation from another project, 1 rebuild on loan, and 1 with newish parts in a box so it'd be easy if you were here.
If you don't find what you're looking for down there in the refrigerator, just open the door on the deep freezer up here.
We're still shopping for a better price on spark plugs so that is one item that we could use more of if you come across a good deal.
