NG Trans Rebuild in Northern VA

I was going to post this in the WASAAB section but I am not a memeber, prob should get on that.
My trans has felt the havoc of a GT30 and some Mickey Thompson ETs and now sounds like it has straight cut gears, unfortunately it doesnt. I have an extra trans I want to rebuild and put in my LSD and the things Nick recommends here: http://www.genuinesaab.com/psi/gearbox.htm
I was going to take it on myself but after reading Nick's ramblings, I think I have decided against it has I have set up back lash on rear ends but never on a front wheel drive trans. Plus now that I am working full time I can afford to pay someone to do it.
Can anyone recommend a good Saab shop in the Northern VA/MD area? Want to try and find someone familiar with these transmissions. I remember hearing about one shop up in MD off 70 or something but can not remember the name. I would supply the trans and parts and just need the labor done.

maybe things are different by you, but over here nobody wants to rebuild these transmissions, they always just say buy another one.

Read through this post. Viking is generally considered to be one of the best shops in the area.

Actually there is this dude in Baltimore who sounds pretty cool. (Might be called Harvey's AutoHaus)

Best I can do is give you his Myspace page.

Viking, thats what I was thinking of. Thanks aireeca.

Viggenkid, yeah but can they do it in a matter of hours? Say the amount of time it takes to check out a car and load it onto a trailer?

Tweek, looks interesting. Where did you find out about this guy?

Called Viking today and talked to Jay. Apparently they dont rebuild transmissions anymore and said they werent really interested in doing it. He said he has done several in the past and has the special tools and would let me borrow them. Real nice guy, may have to take him up on that offer.

I guess next is Tweeks mystery man.

First thing is This Box Has The Early Or Reverse, Not So Good. And the Gear Already Has Alot of wear on it.

And the Old Style Kicker That Should Be updated/


Now 3rd&4th Have a Lot of wear But not First and Second "Usually a FemAle Driven Gearbox"
Thers's A Very Small CHIp In the Ring and Pinion But I Wouldn't condemn it.



Nothing Looks All to terible in Here accept for the "Iffy" Reverse and 3rd4th wear

Well A 1995.5 Or Newer Reverse Kicker and Gear set Would Seriosly Help you out. Your already Looking at Bearings, Bolts, Clips, & Seals to make this thing Work,

Alright, Its Looken Like the Bare Bones Minimum to get this thing Moving Again Is A Seal Kit for A 95.. comes with Seals pins,clips, CrushSleve etc. Pinion Bearings 3, Saab Fluid,There are only 10 Diff bolts in the US, You need 12, I recomend you call ARP.. Parts without a Counter driven Bearing $345.oo With Bearing $515.oo,Thats the Bearing You just Blew up last weekend.... Just Bearings And Reasembly Parts, The Gear and SynchroS are what they are. As far as Reverse goes If you could Come up with one I can at least tell you I Know it will work, The old style Like you Have? No Guarantee on Function. It'll Work or it Won't, That did take alot of these cars off the road,

I keep the ARP bolts for the ring gears.
http://www.genuinesaab.com/catalog/p...roducts_id=658

Make sure to use the new style crush sleeve and be precise setting the preload. Depending on how it will be used just a little on the tight side is safe but this depends on case/ bearings etc. Too less and when you get it good and hot you will have problems at high load. Too much and you kill bearings cold.

Ok I already have the ARP ring bolts sitting in my garage. Sorry i didnt get back to you yesterday I had to go up to UMD and do some aluminum welding for the Formula SAE team and didnt get home till late. Ill get into the stuff i have tonight. The reverse in the trans I blew up was still good before that. Fingers crossed i can pull that out and we can check out its condition.
