Item description for How to Build & Modify High-Performance Manual Transmissions (S-A Design) (Sa Design) (Sa Design) by Paul Cangialosi...

Once upon a time, if you didn't know how to drive a car with a manual transmission, you didn't know how to drive a car. Early in the 1950s, the major manufacturers figured they could broaden their audience and increase their sales by developing a transmission that would shift itself. While automatic transmissions became more and more popular among commuters into the '60s and beyond, manual transmissions remained required equipment among performance enthusiasts.

Fast forward to today; only 5 percent of all vehicles come equipped with manual transmissions, and 99 percent of all parking valets don't know how to drive them. But there was a time in the not-so-distant past that if you had a performance car, you had a manual transmission, and if you were a driver worth your weight in salt, you knew how to use one. For all the performance junkies who have hung in there and insisted on doing your own shifting, this book is for you!

How to Build and Modify High Performance Manual Transmissions, by author Paul Cangialosi, is a complete guide to all manual transmissions, including theory and design, disassembly, inspection, rebuilding, tips and techniques, and performance modifications. Borg Warner T-10s, ST-10s, and T-5s are covered, as well as Ford Top Loaders, Chrysler A833s, and GM Muncies. Peripheral systems are covered as well, including clutches, speedometers, assemblies, shifters, and shifter modifications. Also included are tables, speedometer ratios for GM cars, torque specs, oil capacities, and ratio charts of all the popular transmissions.

Reviews - What do customers think about How to Build & Modify High-Performance Manual Transmissions (S-A Design) (Sa Design) (Sa Design)?

Is This a Joke?  Sep 16, 2008
I bought this book partly for its overview of manual transmissions, but mostly for its supposed information on the A833s. The front cover promises detailed coverage of the A833 (and other transmissions); the rear cover says the book will guide you through the "rebuilding process" for the A833.

Surprise! The book has absolutely nothing on working on this transmission. It spends 39 pages on the BorgWarner products, 21 on the GM/Muncie gearboxes, and three on the A833. Those three whole pages include several useless pictures of castings, no teardown, and no how-to text. It does have several paragraphs of useless fluff about the A833 history.

For my main purpose, this book is misleading and worthless.
Great book with a lot to offer.  Jul 27, 2008
This book offers the most comprehensive information that I have come across.
The photography and instruction are exceptionally clear especially for novices like myself.
