    Default velvet drive questions

    This is a 2 part post, I have my engine / velvet drive out for an engine rebuild.

    1) while I have the drive out, any service items I should attend to while its out? I think it might be leaking from the input? so seals? Who could I take it to in socal?

    2) I'm not super stoked how they rigged the rear engine mount / trans / to the stringer rails. They used blocks UNDER the rails? Does anyone have any pics of how theirs rear plate / velvet drive mounting is done?

    My experience with Velvet Drive is any tranny guy can work on them. If it were me I would access a rebuild kit for your model..They are cheap...then carry it in to trusty tranny guy..done deal. Most guys know a tranny guy...

    See thats where I run into issues, this is really my first attempt at handling a tranny! I'd really look to some of you old pro's for guidance for the young guys out here.
