Hi, I'm new to this forum stuff.
Does anyone know where to get a service kit to suit a Hydramatic ?

Welcome to the forum. I dont know where you live but i had my hydramatic recoed in toowoomba qld by Gilroys Automatics. Even then i had to get the flex plate and torus input shaft rebuilt by a chap in the blue mts of nsw.

Thanks Glenn, Im located in regional SA and have also asked a few local car club members.
The Prem hasn't been driven since '88 so needs some TLC to be driven again, oh and the motor and trans to be installed first :)

You can buy service kits from the US for hydramatics. They were referred to as the Slim Jim box, with the EK's using the Model 5. You can get the service kits from eBay for the Model 10, and suspect they fit Model 5...

... but the prices are horrible. Some places (from memory Repco) were also importing them, though selling at a similar price. I imported a box of 50 filters a few years back, and sold them off at cost. It was about $70 each for the filter, gasket and o-ring. Sadly I don't have any left other than the ones I gave Dad for the EH Prem.

Thanks for the extra information Harv.
Always good when you learn something new about your project.
