Default B&M transmission 2 speed

They are 727 torqueflite transmissions. They were made by B&M in the early 90s before they closed there marine division. They blocked off first and park and use no torque converter. The governor and park gear is removed. Your local transmission guy will not be able to rebuild them for you. I did a lot of research on them after the local guy screwed with it and we melted it. I sent it to Rick at A&A Transmission 317-831-3066 aandatrans.com. He has built some for a guy that has 1600hp in an offshore racing boat. He makes all the parts. He has a valve body that is manual that is positive oiling and the shift pattern is R-N-2-D and has two less valves that can stick. He has all the parts to change it to roller bearing instead of bushings. Save your self a lot of time, money and just have A&A work on it.
We are running this behind an intercooled, supercharged bbc with a #3 ssm drive (1 to 1) 16.5x 28 four blade in a 27 eliminator cat.

I still own the boat. I had it on ebay, I get offers every day but nobody shows up with the money, just a lot of tire kickers. I am selling it because I am looking for a CC, I have a lot of customers that want to go fishing and I can't do it in this. Its the best boat I ever owned and it blows away anyones performance expectations. If anyone wants to get into a 36' boat that goes 120 for under 50K, pm me. I think the thread came back up beacuse there was a lot of discussion on OSO about 2 speed trannies, someone probably did a search.

JOHN, I responded to your PM....never heard anything back.
