I purchased this book to fill the gap of knowledge between factory service manuals and my own lack of experience.
This book helped fill that void. It offered useful ideas for how to do things
without the expensive specialty tools. It is more aimed at those in a shop environment than the home DIY'er.
Much of the book is filled with step-by-step instructions of rebuilding some popular transmissions. These are of value even if you are not rebuilding that particular model.
While I was hoping there would be things I could do to to "modify" my transmission the reality is that there are few situations where an end-user can do more than swap parts that interchange within a particular transmission.
As well, I would have liked coverage on some small basic things that tend to be particular to transmissions, such as: special tools, proper bearing handling and installation, choice of sealants and lubricants, etc.
