Removing the transmission is often an essential part of the restoration process for a vehicle like the 1983 Chevy Blazer. By taking the transmission out of the vehicle, our technicians can inspect it closely for signs of wear and damage that may have been caused over time. Once the transmission is removed, we can also replace any parts that are worn out or damaged, such as the clutch, torque converter, or transmission filter. In some cases, we may also need to rebuild the transmission to ensure that it is working as it should. This can involve disassembling the transmission, replacing worn or damaged parts, and then reassembling it to factory specifications. At Texoma Classics, we take great care to ensure that every part of your restoration project is done to the highest standards, and removing the transmission is just one of the many steps we take to ensure that your vehicle is restored to its original glory.

Installing a power steering pump is an important part of restoring a vehicle, especially for older models that may not have had power steering as a standard feature. The power steering pump is responsible for providing hydraulic pressure to the power steering system, which makes it easier for the driver to turn the steering wheel. When installing a power steering pump, our technicians carefully inspect all of the associated components to ensure that they are in good working order. This can include the power steering hoses, the power steering rack and pinion, and the power steering fluid reservoir. If any of these components are worn or damaged, they will be replaced to ensure that the power steering system is working as it should. Once the power steering pump is installed, we test the system to make sure that there are no leaks and that the steering is smooth and easy to control. At Texoma Classics, we take great pride in our work and strive to ensure that every aspect of your restoration project is done to the highest standards.

Installing a new transmission is a significant step in the restoration process, as it can dramatically improve the performance and drivability of the vehicle. A new transmission can provide smoother shifts, better acceleration, and improved fuel efficiency, which can all add up to a more enjoyable driving experience. When installing a new transmission, our technicians carefully inspect all of the associated components to ensure that they are in good working order. This can include the transmission mount, torque converter, shift linkage, and transmission fluid lines. We also use high-quality parts to ensure that the new transmission is reliable and long-lasting. Once the new transmission is installed, we test it thoroughly to make sure that it is functioning properly and that there are no leaks or other issues.

When it comes to restoring a vehicle’s engine, timing the high side belt is an important step in ensuring that the engine is running smoothly and efficiently. The high side belt is typically responsible for driving the accessories such as the alternator, power steering pump, and air conditioning compressor, and it needs to be timed correctly to ensure that everything is running in sync. Timing the high side belt involves making sure that the crankshaft pulley, the high side pulley, and the camshaft pulley are all aligned correctly, so that the belt is properly tensioned and doesn’t slip. Our technicians take great care when timing the high side belt, using specialized tools and techniques to ensure that everything is aligned correctly. Once the belt is timed, we test the engine to make sure that everything is running smoothly and that all of the accessories are working as they should.
