There is no connection between the two. If the trans isn't working, it can 
be somewhat simple, or can get very expensive. Do you have any specifics as 
to what the trans does wrong?

BTW, the rack job isn't significantly different than on a 5000/100/200. I'd 
say the car should be pretty cheap at this time, as you can find very nice 
ones in the $2500-4000 range.
