      those prices are nto to bad.. my problem with buying them off evil bay, i
      dont know who im buying them from, or how they were treated b4 i bought
      them.. im not a trusting person whe it comes to me handing over large
      amounts of money..
      anouther way to go will be
      advance adaptors, the ake adaptors to bolt trannsmissions to motors.. so
      should be able to get one of those to fit my 440, then go to a junk yard and
      get a tranny with over drive.. personaly id rather have a stick.. im not
      sure where im going or what im going to do with mine. i do know this is not
      my last motor home, i dont like the lay out of it enough to keep it forever,
      now if it was another 15 foot or so longer i might consider it...
