I talked to a mechanic today he’s going to look at the transmission
after I pull it out.
It had a problem of poping out a second and into netural I believe
this has something to do with the synchro-bearing (spelling?)
But I mostly likely need a new clutch plate (darn used vehicle getting
expensive) because it was griding once I got it home, now you can’t
even shift it.
But I’m going to have the transmission looked at first before I invest
any money into this, I’ve heard this particluar tranmission gives
Maybe I should just sell it.
