I have about ten requests for the shift kit and motor/tranny mounts. Need 10
more. I would again steer those with interest to the following links:
(Please see the Jan 6 post for an opinion on the increase in vibration of
the mount kit)

Also, any members who bought the shift kit in the past, if you could post a
quick opinion?

Thanks all,

Dr. Gratz

> Symptom:
> A few weeks ago, the radio started not turning on when the knob was taken

> you turned the knob.  The jiggling method worked less and less over the last
> few weeks, and now, turning the knob (jiggling, pressure, or not) has no
> effect.  The radio is "dead".
