Had a local shop do a rebuild on the tranny, ( new bearings, seals, etc). She runs and sounds great. There was not any wear on the gears or shafts. Hope this helps.

We'll see, I'm dropping mine beggining next month. The odd thing is and I'm not sure if it happened on yours, when I shift the rpms still climb 100-200 more - not sure if normal on the car.

I'm doing the tranny tear with a friend and I really do hope it's that. We thought it was a wheel bearing and even took it apart, to find that it's coming from the transmission. Which I find odd, since it shifts fine.

That's normal when the clutch is disengaged.

Oh ok, I always had a lingering feeling about that. I usually shift around 3k rpm and see them climb the extra bit and ever since the transmission diagnosis I became a little conscious of the rpms climbing. Thanks Kodyston.

No Problem. I've heard if you put a lighter flywheel in your car it wont do it as much if at all. But, I'm not sure how true that is since I've never had an upgraded "lighter" flywheel before. lol
