Recommendations on a transmission shop near Denver?

I have a ZF6 with a 4th-5th gear grind and a tail housing in need of replacement. Looking for a reputable shop to do the work. Shops are a dime a dozen... looking for one that knows these transmissions well.

Thanks in advance.

Its allright man just see it through!! Once completed then she will be all yours and better than ever

I do not know any 5-6 speed builders in Denver area, I rebuild my own transmissions with the help of a good friend of mine, and he has 2 in the que as of today!
Have you considered buying a new one and swap them out? This is something I can do at my shop if you go that route?

The 4-5 shift could be caused by the cracked tail housing. I would change it out. Or just swap to a new or used zf6. Sometimes they come up for sale in craigslist.

If you didnt know im just over the mountain in grand junction. If i find one here ill let you know

Re: Recommendations on a transmission shop near Denver?

I call it 4-5 shift, but I guess it's a 5-6 shift! (who uses the granny gear in normal situations anyway?)

I suspect bad synchros. The tranny had a lot of coolant in it... for how long? I do not know. Radiator has been replaced but while it is out... I think I will hedge my bets and just have it gone though. A-1 Trans came recommended by a diesel speed shop. They quoted $1100 to go through it. Didn't seem too bad.

I also have a South Bend 350hp clutch/flywheel and a new clutch fork on the way :)

For never having owned a ford truck in my life I sure am learning a lot awfully quick... mostly never to buy another one! I've had this thing 3 weeks. Paid $4k for it thinking I might put another $4-5k in it... more like another $10k... Going broke over here.. Haha.
