Howdy all! I'm kitty and I'm new around here, hoping to learn about Buick's and get some help getting my new love back on the road. My husband recently got me '63 Buick Wildcat. She's my daily driver and has been going pretty good for the last 4 months. Recently she decided to test us. Her dyna took a massive dump in the parking lot. We pulled it and bought a rebuilt one we found in an effort to save some money. Well..... The new one did the same thing. Dumped everywhere and I don't have drive, only reverse. The new / old trans came out of a 64 la saber and had done 200 miles. The guy swapped it for more power, so I have no reason to believe it was necessarily a bad trans. We have it possibly narrowed down to a few things. One, the hub may not have put enough fluid in before we started it, only 3 pints. So probably didn't suck down in to the torque converter. 2 we may have over filled it, and blown the gasket causing the leak. Three.... From what I have been told there is a belt in there that is much like break material and grabs when your in drive giveing it enough ooph to push this big cat forward. It does not appear that it was tight. The hub tried adjusting it. The wheels turn but there isn't enough there to move the car with the wheels down. Also.... The fluid that came out is like glitter paint... Bad I know. Any advice? Anything I can try to get her back on the road? With out breaking the bank preferably. Or am I just better off to suck it up and have it rebuilt? And what is a fair price for a rebuild? The quote I got before was $900 to start. Seems high to me but we do all our own work on Our cars and I haven't gone to a shop for anything in 5 years. I'm open to any advice and suggestions I just want to be back on the road in my baby!
