    If you want to know more of why and how it works read the MSDS........
    Then you will understand where I was coming from before.

    No matter where we end up with this transmission, I truly hope that this thread, which has provided a plethora of information, ends up in someone's Google search. No, we do not have a definitive answer, and no, we can't in any stretch of the imagination say anything has been "fixed", but there has been an amazing amount of information and learning potential in these 18 pages. The best part (and what differs from most forums) is the fact that it has all been educational, with zero drama. Every page and nearly every post has been informative. My personal thanks to this fine forum and even finer members for all of the help and bountiful information. To be continued, for better or worse.

    I'll give you a half-eaten baloney sandwich for it.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I'm afraid I would probably be taking advantage of you. Still working fine, but we're putting a 6 speed in. Hardest tranny removal I've ever done. Like a Rubik's cube.

    I honestly think I'll have my son tear it apart to see how everything works and then scrap it. Could never sell it as a "good" transmission.

    Good plan. If you're going to drive an older, high-mileage car, any issues that might arise with a manual transmission are much easier to diagnose and generally less expensive to repair. Manuals don't require much "dark arts magic" to function correctly.

    We bought a complete "kit" from a guy in the UK. 6 speed, axles, clutch pedal, new clutch, the works. All that we have left is to bleed the clutch and figure out the wiring. Oh, and I'm looking for a new body as I've beat mine to death the past 2 days and can barely type right now.
