Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Please help. We purchased a 1983 c10  chevy short bed silverado needing
everything. Started with transmission. Had rebuilt for 1200.00 with a year
warranty. Bring truck home where it sat and was not driven. Took to another
mechanic to install a new 383 engine. Get a call from mechanic the
transmission casing is cracked at the bolt hole and dow pin. Mechanic says
not covered under warranty. Should it be?

1 Answer

Did the mechanic that did the engine swap crack the case? Did you read the warranty?
