Hi all, can anyone recommend a competent trans shop in the Paramus, NJ area ? (saw a bodyshop post mentioning a place in Berlin, but thats too far south) PO was a mechanic, but my 4 spd is hard to get into gear and it HATES (ie won't) going into 2nd gear. thanks!

I don't know a good toploader rebuilder in the area (I do mine myself). Before you go to a shop,
have you checked the shifter rods and bushings themselves? If they get sloppy, you can get the
same feeling.

Just had my toploader done in Roxbury. That may be to far for you though.

thanks for the replys, guys. I've found a place in Waldwick, so I guess I'll take it over there. I'm really not a tranny expert by any means, but I don't think the linkages bind (thanks for the heads up though !)
