Autozone lists an ATC at $184 with synchro's but I read about someone having an issue with most of the bearings being incorrect.






NAPA doesn't even list the '79ZX as FS5W71B equipped... wtf?

I just ordered a kit this morning as well through the local Baxter's for 172. My question is, how hard is it to rebuild this thing, or should I take it to local tranny shop for 200 and have it done? Im fine around an engine but first tranny on a bench in front of me.

You'll need a press, some long jaw puller, and an array of snap ring pliers. Other than that, it's pretty straight forward. The key with any trans auto or manual, is organization. Lots of small parts.. and parts that look the same but are different. Also both are filthy.. auto more so. There will be oil everywhere no matter what.
