Dynaflow Rebuilders

Recommended Posts

Anyone know who I should trust with my 1950 Dynaflow ? Been sitting for 30 years and if it was like the engine, needs some work. <BR>If they are down south thats even better.<BR>I have seen Cofees' Classic Transmissions in Dallas in Old Car Trader and wondered if anyone has used them. <BR> <BR>Bill<BR>

There is a fellow in our area that has rebuilt many Dynaflow Transmissions for the Chicagoland Chapter Club members. I highly recomend him.<P> He is Tom Kasper Sr., with A-1 Transmissions in Elgin, IL. He is semi- retired, he now only works on the old Dynaflows and Jetaways and leaves the new stuff to his son. Phone him at 847-888-4200 or <BR>847-622-9225. Make sure you talk to the old guy.<P> He disassembled mine right in front of me and told exactly what it needed. He also said that 75% of the transmissions he repairs, somebody else had already tried and failed.<P>Scott

Scott,<BR>That doesn't surprise me that someone could fail on a Dynaflow. Have you ever looked at one ? They are worse then a puzzle.<BR>I tried one once and swore them off for good after that.<BR>I will call the guy you talk about if I cant find someone down here. I have a couple of leads.<BR>Hows your 322 doing ? Still using oil ?<BR>Bill

Hi Bill,<BR> The 322 is still leaking. I am watching it close. I am going to bring it in next week to <BR>have it fixed. My mechanic thinks one of the plugs on the rear of the engine is leaking.<BR> I'll let you know once it's fixed. Thanks for your concern.<P>Scott

I just found this thread and need dynaflow help badly. Is this guy still doing them? Are the prices reasonable? When I ask reasonable I mean I dont have to donate a lung or something, although that would be less painfull than some of the prices I have seen...

12 year old thread back from the dead. That must be a record.

I would suggest you look in the Bugle as they have some folks listed under services.

Lamar Wilkins in Lancaster rebuilt a '54 Dynaflow for me some years ago, and did a good job, he should still be around. Do a search of his name, and good luck!

If you don't mind looking out of the Chicagoland area call Jim Hughes of Jim's Dynaflow Service here in Perrysburg (Toledo), Ohio near Ohio Turnpike and I-75. 419-874-2393. Just might have a rebuilt one in stock. He rebuilds any Dynaflow. I always enjoy talking Dynaflow with him.

Ohio is closer than Texas, but if worse comes to worst, I have a guy in San Antonio.

I find it hard to believe that a simple transmission such as a Dynaslow is that hard to rebuild. Assuming that the hard parts are in good shape, then we are talking two bands, one clutch pak, seals, and possibly some washers. The most complicated part on this transmission is the torque converter, which is something someone should take pictures of as it is dissassembled or have a factory shop manual with good pics.

Maybe I should start rebuilding these things on the side. I have one from a 57. and frankly it looks like a snap to tear down and rebuild. I am using it for a possible substitution for dynaflow, without doing away with the torque tube setup.
