Re: tranny blues

-- [ From: Huw Powell * EMC.Ver #3.1a ] --

>It is an '84 5000S FWD 5-speed w/150K miles and a transmission that made it
but will no longer go in ANY gear(s). I am thinking of purchasing a used one

with 87Kmi. on it and putting a new clutch/pressure plate/throw out bearing 
and tranny flush with Red-Line synthetic or Amsoil. What do you think??
BTW, I can get the tranny for $75.00 US is that reasonable???

If it were any cheaper it would be free, right?  Good idea to do the clutch
while you're in there.  I think this can all be done under the car without
moving the engine.  Doing it yourself?  If not you might consider a
transmission specialist as opposed to dealership.  Good luck.
