Transmissions, particularly OD ones, are like electrical components. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. Don't skimp on this part, since you will be towing a boat. You don't want to lose your tranny on a busy launch ramp! 700s work fine for towing, but have to be built for it. Especially '90s models. You're gonna be looking at $13-1500 easy for a quality rebuild with guarantee. Another $300 for a quality converter. Tow bills, especially in the middle of nowhere, with a boat behind you, will be just as much. Pay now or pay later. Plus, run the risk of ruining a vacation.

You can buy a "crate" trans these days for just as much as a rebuild and you will have a lot less downtime.

Try bowtieoverdrives.com, eatmyshift.com, or gearstar.com

All have quality transmissions/converters for average prices.
