We’ve all seen it before: you go into a shop and after a quick look around you start to wonder if you should have any work done there. When it comes to our babies, we want the shop to take the same pride in our cars that we take in them, and that’s a rare thing to find these days.
At Silver Sport Transmissions, extra steps are taken to ensure that its PerfectFit Kits are put together with quality and with your car in mind. As Jeff Kauffman shows us in the video above, there have been times when they have come across transmissions that were less than acceptable, and it’s a real eye opener.
We’ve all been there before, where we wrap a shop rag around a part because it’s time consuming to remove parts when we need to do some drilling or grinding. Some of us have paid the price for our own laziness, and it’s a lesson learned. But when it comes to a shop making modifications on our cars, we expect that shop to take extra measures to ensure that we won’t run into problems later – which usually happen at a time when we can’t prove where or when the problem occurred.
Kauffman ran into one of those situations with a competitor’s transmission kit that Silver Sport ended up with. He showed some of the problems they ran into when they took the case apart to fix a shifter misalignment issue for a new customer.
What they ran into was a perfect reminder as to why Silver Sport disassembles transmission shifter plates before they’re modified, so they can assure that the remnants of that modification aren’t found months later trapped between the gears, as shown in the video.
Sure, it takes a little longer to pull the transmission apart to make these modifications, but for Silver Sport there is no other way to do it except to do it right the first time. When seeing that some of these extra measures are not just one way to go about making modifications, but they’re the only way, it’s the peace of mind that you’ll want when ordering a PerfectFit Powertrain Solution for your baby.
Be sure to check out the extensive line of PerfectFit manual and automatic transmission conversion kits, as well as crate engines and complete differentials on the Silver Sport Transmissions website. Because there’s no such thing as “GoodEnoughFit” when it comes to your classic musclecar.
