What's your experience?
Due
always had great results from a huber trans. 3 years ago i sent my transmission to huber to be rebuilt. There was nothing wrong with it. I own a 46 cigarette . In the last year i have gone thru 5 transmissions on my starboard side. I am only running merc 900s. It is a joke . I have spent over 20k on just in and out of motor. Huber could give a ****. Anyone that wants a huber trans should think twice. Go with bam. Huber does not stand behind there product. They are buying **** parts at our expense. If you have had a problem with a huber trans e mail me at [email protected]. Or call me at 773-636-7000. I would like to put together a class action lawsuit. I want to make all situations right.

Bam has a dry sump vs. A deep sump. Does bam remove transmission fluid and go to a fluid tank, then get pumped into areas of transmission???

I've spoken to the new owner several times recently and he has been extremely accommodating and helpful.
If i need new transmissions in the future i will go with hubers.
