I had Rancho do a performance tranny for me, cost about $100 to ship it FROM
the east coast and $60 TO the east coast from CA.

They seem to do a decent job, their quality control needs a little work and
they don't know T3 from T1 (had to swap out the hockey stick) but their
customer service was top notch, my tranny was noisy... they took it back at
their expense and fixed it, well... I think they fixed it as I haven't used
it since but I have a feeling that the cars that most of those trannys go in
are so loud that you couldn't hear the gear whine anyway.

thank you all for the expert advice on replacing my growling pinion gear.
clearly a ''new'' tranny is the way to go. 
i'm los angeles at zip 90066 and would like to find a tranny that is/was
operational.  per jim adney 69 & 70 are an exact fit,  but later years are
okay as well.
per mike fisher, a tranny weighs 75 lbs so shipping costs may be high.
one from just about anywhere in the southwest would be a lot better than
oregon or wisconsin.
is there any way to tell if a junk yard  tranny is okay?  any advice
fred in sunny so cal.
