The hardest part in my opinion is getting the correct parts. Although that is highly dependent on what type of rebuild you do. Other than that I think it is relatively easy. Buy a high quality gear splitter plate, and a press, and it is fairly straight forward.

There are various manuals for doing this. I believe I used a factory service manual. It has been a while however.

Pickup a spare transmission to rebuild. That way you can rebuild it when you have time and simply R&R the transmission between customers.

You can then rebuild your original one and sell it or put it on the shelf as a spare.

Shimming is very easy IMO. Just tedious.

You can say that again!
To the OP, do you have the Manual Trans repair school book? I have a PDF copy if you don't.

If it's Android it's just called Graiglist. I have the same app on my phone looking for cars to flip. Works great.
