Unless you know someone that can do it or has experience I wouldnt even touch it.
go for the used one
Well, if I'm going to have to pull it, I might as well tear into it and see just how hard it would be to repair it. Come on now, if the Army was able to teach me how to tear turbine engines down to the main shaft, how much harder could a tranny be?
Plus, this could be a learning experience for the whole forum. Money is kinda tight at this time, so this would maybe take awhile. Plenty of time to get books, take pictures during the tear down etc. I do believe someone is still looking for more pics for the Tech forum.
Today, I might as well push the car out back and start on taking it apart. So far, the plan is to pull both engine and trans out as one unit. Will keep everyone posted.
