My mechanic said he re-built one once, but was not too keen on doing it again.  You could try him and see how you go - Kupa Motors in Sunshine.

Hi Adam,
I have used Commercial automatics in Tullamarine to rebuild my 4 speed hydro in my 59 Pontiac Starcheif and recently my 60 Cadillac flattop, he knows these transmissions well, he can be a little slow completing the job but his work seems good his details are...

hey Adam, just curious to see what it ends up costing you, if you could post some figures that would be great.

Keith Bury is one of best and will give you a fair deal.  He overhauled my '59 transmission.  100% happy.
