A couple other sources:

http://www.ukrtrans....uki/R4AX-EL.pdf

Transmission core is known as R4AX-EL and EC8. When I searched this time, Google did not return some of the sites that I have looked at before. Quite a few companies offer parts, kits and rebuild manuals for the 4EAT and M41/M41a (aka 3AT)

Your brave, brave, brave people. I haven't built a tranny since tech school, and hope and never want to again. But the old wallet may say otherwise at some point.

I did several three speed auto's and one GM with lockup.

After that i will gladly put in a used one before getting into a rebuilt. rebuilts are cranked out by a factory, I do not of a shop that rebuilds them by hand anymore (I am sure there are a few out there some place)

The only exception may be the Justy, which surprsingly still come from subaru.

Really not too terribly hard so long as the solenoids and electronics test out good.

Not too tough. I experienced my first rebuild due to a stacked pump. The convertor slipped causing misalignment. Broke the drive gear into 3 pieces. Before I was done the entire assembly was sitting on the ground. But, all it cost me was time. Fortunately, I knew a few people in the industry that threw a few used parts at me. Put it back together and it even worked :eek:

I can rebuild them if I want to, they aren't a hard trans to work on. But with used ones available to me for less than $100 it's just not cost effective.
