When I did mine, I was able to get all the parts I needed from a local transmission warehouse. I would start there if there is one in your area. You can get performance kits out of places like JEG's and Summit, but if you are just rebuilding without intention of having a high performance machine, then it may not be worth the money. If there is no transmission place in your area, then sites like the one previously posted are a good alternative, only problem being if you forget something or determine you need something else it is not readily available. As I posted before, I got about everything I needed for mine for about $85 minus a new torque converter, and I replaced everything in the tranny. While you are at it, put a shift kit in there, you won't be disappointed, and it will be money well spent.
I got all new gaskets, seals, bands, frictions, steels, thrust washers, springs/rollers for the sprag clutch, sealing rings, lock washers for the servos, and anything else I have forgotten that would have had a chance of being worn out. I believe I may have even gotten the shift kit in there, since the first one I did was the little baby stage I kit, but I can't remember for sure.
Are those reinforcement plates worth it? Do they add valuable strength to the shock towers if you already running an export brace and money Carlo bar?

Anyone ever installed a PowerAntenna in one of the early classics?
The previous owner inadvertently broke off the mast of the non-power antenna of my 66.
I have been holding off replacing this, because 1) the radio (original) is not hooked up anyway (no speakers either), and
2) I really like...
Getting the brake lines sorted on the 65 meant getting the rear most line on the bottom of the distribution block loose. The regular flare wrench was unable to assist as there's not enough room for the tool there. So I bought the crow's foot flare wrench set from Northern. Verified rotation...
So, I'm a bit uncertain of how long my 66 car sat before I obtained it. But I know for sure it was atleast 3 years. How many times it was ran, I'm not sure.
Anyhow, after a small carb mishap (some of you may have seen my other thread), I noticed when I tore the carb down there was a significant...
The 67 I got a little over a month ago came with not as much detailed info as I would have liked but the car is pretty solid and I feel the guy I got it from was honest in his description for what he knew about car.
I’ve been trying to piece together as much as I can from what I can physically...
