Minneapolis?? (Mpls)

60tbirdman is a member in Minnesota. Maybe drop him a PM and see what he knows about. No idea how far from Minneapolis he is.

Jerome, What does COM stand for? I am not familiar with that acronym. Must be a transmission shop as that is the title to your post. I know of no transmission shops in Mpls that I could recommend, however I could suggest Red's Service in Monticello, MN. Monti is 90 minutes up I94/694 from Hudson, WI. Their contact info is;

Red's Service
200 E Broadway Street,
Monticello, MN 55362
(763) 295-4130

I only recommend them cause a friend of mine, Chuck Bray, works there, but he could fix your tranny in his own home shop. His # is 763-878-5457.

Not to be confused with Ford-O-Matic (which COM improved upon).
