    As most will recall, as it entered its 40th year of publication, Transmission Digest was acquired by Babcox Media, Inc. Babcox is celebrating 100 years of serving the aftermarket.
  • Transmissions and Electronics
    Sunday, September 1, 2019 12:00 AM
    Somebody this month asked a pretty good and pointed question. Why do you take time and space to discuss electronics? Everybody in the industry buys them and all the suppliers have them for sale.
  • More Industry Service!
    Thursday, August 1, 2019 12:00 AM
    This month Transmission Digest celebrates the completion of 39 years of industry service and, at the same time, the start of a new era for the magazine and for our sponsors and readers. You may have noticed that the Transmission Digest cover logo has one additional component this month.
  • No More Donuts?

    Once in a while, the phones relent, my writing assignments are caught up and there’s no excuse to climb on an airplane for a few days. Once in a while, during the lull periods I’ll take the time to visit our archives of magazines. If you take a look at the cover or contents page of this issue, you’ll find that this is volume 38, No. 11 of the magazine. What that means is that with the August issue we’ll have completed 38 years of monthly publication.
  • It’s A Powertrain World
    Friday, May 31, 2019 12:00 AM
    For nearly 38 years, Transmission Digest has served the nation’s transmission shops. Originally concentrated on rebuilders, the magazine has followed the industry into more general repair work and to the use of reman units. Once a year we like to take a step back for a broader view of an industry that is global in nature.

    Leaving “Haywire” Behind

    The term “going haywire” originates with the tendency for wire used for bailing hay to spring into tangles when removed from its original reel. I’ve noticed over the years that there are times when, no matter what we do, something seems to go haywire with the same person or company over and over.

    Up & Running:
    I always hate to promise delivery of some new technology because, it never seems to work as described, or, it works as described but not at the time it was announced to be ready. Thus, we said nothing about a new and hopefully helpful service added to our website in conjunction with last month’s annual Buyer’s Guide issue. Against all odds, the feature worked correctly from day one and we now gladly call your attention to this tool.

    There’s a lot to “digest” this month in Transmission Digest.

    We present on the following pages the 2019 Survey of Retail Repair Shops that receive the magazine. Please be sure to read the explanations that accompany the various chart displays as the charts contain specifically reported data that sometimes require a good understanding of the underlying methods in order to fully make use of the information presented.

    When the discussion turns to pioneers of the powertrain industry, it’s a sure thing that the name Gil Younger will be one of the first mentioned. Younger passed in 2013 (See: Transmission Digest July, 2013, page 2) but the company he founded, TransGo, is marking its 60th year anniversary.

    Perception of time, according to both science and conventional wisdom, speeds up as we get older. It must be so as I feel as if I did a Happy New Year column just recently, as opposed to a year ago. Notwithstanding the turbulence of the markets, there’s a feel of optimism in the aftermarket fueled by the growth and strength of the overall domestic economy. We can always use a good year!
Beyond the missions of providing education and reference materials, Transmission Digest serves as a prime resource used as shops find the parts, supplies and services necessary for successful and profitable operation. Nine of the 12 issues published each year are focused on the products, services and suppliers relating to a specific profit center within the retail shop.
