TF999 hard-part availability

Hello everyone. I am taking a stab at rebuilding the automatic tranny in my '83 CJ8. I have a rebuild kit and got a Paul Zank video to help me with the rebuild. I found that the planetary gears have a fair amount of wear (the ring and sun gears are in great shape). Are planet gear assemblies still available, and if so, where? If I understand correctly, the TF904 used the same set. So far I have had no luck finding this type of "hard part" for this transmisson. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Forget the normal 'pretty parts stores'! You will need to get acquainted with the REAL parts suppliers that the commercial shops use. Find out where the local transmission rebuilders get their parts. Here in my part of the world, the transmission parts store only goes by the name TPS and doesn't advertise themselves. That keeps their customer base to mostly knowledgeable mechanics that KNOW who they are.

I would not worry about that planetary setup, it will keep going forever. Just put the 'soft parts' that come with a rebuild kit in and be SURE you replace the Torque Convertor with a DACCO rebuilt unit. If you just do that, you will come out 'ok' financially. If you start digging deeper, you might as well take it to a shop and get it done for you.
