Got the first one right, lets try for two.....

This happens on the ZF trannies when you try to put either the tranny or
the engine in with the torque converter improperly seated.  It
pushes in on the pump and breaks the tabs off.   Last time it came up it
was a dealership who @#$%'ed it up and still charged the "happy" owner
$3000, albeit alot less than the $10,000 they had quoted at the time for
a new transmission.

There are plenty of places that do ZF transmissions, I know of two:

Ericksson Industries
Old Saybrook, CT
146B Elm St. 06475
800-388-4418.
203-388-4418

and

JAGGI IMPORT EXPORT, INC.
1-800-874-7753
http://www.jie.com/auditrans.htm


Ericksson usually has all the parts in stock, no personal BTDT with
Jaggi, but they have a good reputation.
