Well a little update. I haven't removed the cv yet, but I did drain the fluid and it looked like a can of metallic flake paint. It was full of metal shards. So its looking like the trans is fubar. But I was at the junkyard today and picked up a trans for 250 with a one year warranty, along with a few other little parts I needed. Now that I pulled the trans on a donor car I feel more confident doing mine. I'm going to start removing everything tonight, and maybe be ready to drop the trans out tomorrow.
