If anyone has any details or pictures of tools they made when they rebuilt their A604, I would appreciate the info.

I can get you some - don't have time to take pics tonight - and this forum does not seem to support attachments. PM me or email me with your email and I'll get you some. I am away for a couple days so it won't be till late in the week...

I rebuilt mine without any special tools. I had to improvise a couple of times with spring compressors.

I think that is what he is wanting to know... what kinda of improvised tools did you use to do this...

I am interested as well, as I am facing a rebuild of my 41TE as well...

I didn't take pictures of the improvised tools that I used. I remember using a pieces of wood, an engine pulley and a hacked up metal house lamp reflector. Lol, All of the stuff came from my house/garage so you would really have to start taking stuff apart and doing the work and coming up with the tools as you go along. To take the tranny apart, you don't really need any special tools but to put it back together is when the compressors come into play. The force on all the springs is not that great so it can be done without any expensive tools.

Just gotta say this. I am totally impressed by you guys who can rebuild an A604/41Te. Are you guys professional mechanics or DIY at home people? Either way I am sincerely impressed. I am just plain amazed though if you are DIY at home people.`

I have a lot of respect and admiration for real mechanics, whether professional or not, because it is all just plain beyond me. The more I learn, the more I realize how little I know and how much BS I was taught in the past.

If I had the tools, I would rebuild my own.....

I was young (10 or so) I would rather pick up a Chilton manual instead of a kids book.

I am a hobbyist. lol I fix all my cars and it came down to either paying someone $1000 to rebuild the tranny, not knowing what has and hasn't been fixed or buying a used tranny from a yard. I decided to try and fix it myself. I didn't really care if I would fix it or not. The way I looked at it, if it doesn't work, I am out $800 on parts but if it does, I got a fixed tranny.
