I put my 64 in the shop today to have the torque converter replaced with a new B&M Holeshot 2400 that I bought from Summit. I am curious what the CAC members with experience in this are area think would be a fair time for the labor charge? I have a TH350 trans in my 64 and the stock torque converter just did not cut it with the new smallblock with hot cam I dropped in last year. The shop doing the work has been very fair to me in the past but the only estimate I got from them was 'a day or two'. I like the work they have done in the past and think they will give me a fair deal. I have negotiated a very good hourly labor charge, $60 an hour compared to there usual $84 and hour. My own guess is about 4 to 6 hours to do the job. Thoughts???????
