Performance trans builders in Washington?

Post  dfree383 on January 28th 2015, 11:58 am

Got a glide I need freshened anybody have any suggestions for shops in the state of Washington? Looking for something within a few hour drive of the Bellingham area.

I'd send it back to JW but the shipping cost the last few years are just killer on this kind of crap.

Thanks

Dave,

I'll ask around, but you could contact Dale Green at DG Machine in Auburn and see who he might recomennd.

On another note, Feb 7 & 8 is the high performance swap meet at the Puyallup fair grounds, if your interested.

Is that the same Green who owns the speed shop and campaigns the "Assassin" dragster with the SOHC cammer...?

Dale Green has an American Dragster with a 632 Chevy on it. I've never seen him with a ford powered dragster.

I remember being in Jim Green's speed shop 20yrs ago and he had SOHC cammer engines in all stages of assembly in the showroom(multiple..my first look up close), I believe the shop was called Jim Green's.

Jim Green was/is a Northwest drag racing legend. I don't think he is related to the Dale Green that runs top dragster these days.. Both very good engine builder btw. Dale Green runs a shop called DG Machine I think.

Another guy in Vancouver WA is Gary Ericksen (also works at A1 sometimes) If you don't want to go that far? Gary says the guy in Seattle area would be Bob Simms.
I don't have his number but can get it from Gary

Dave I get my stuff done by Mike Shannon at RPM Automotive in Kelowna..

During racing season he is across the border all the time. Not sure what your time frame is like...

There is another guy on this side of the border.. in the abbotsford area... Bruce Flodin he does real good work as well.

There is a guy we race with. trying to remember his name... has Village Transmission on the side of his roadster... I think that is his own shop..

I dont have any experience with his stuff personally.

dfree (It's Dave right?) you should/could talk to Gary Ericksen in Vancouver. He is the FE guy too. May be able to deal.
He runs a silver Ford Probe in super street and super pro. 390 powered. 360-773-6907

Dave you could easily do it yourself. Bring me down a couple cases of beer and I will show you how easy it is.
