	I had a couple apart, and back together to clean up and lube.   I 
didn't replace any parts on either one.   They were both nearing 200,000 
miles, and although they may be  alittle loose, they still work well, adn 
the new lube job really improved the shift feel alot.   The shift effort 
went way down.
