Also some heavy stuff in the middle of the pan.

Another thing we found was a lot of small brass flakes. Looks like a bushing went out.

Bottom line, the transmission is coming out. He'* looking for a replacement.

He'* picking up another transmission tomorrow and dropping it off. I see a long day in my future. I don't think I can drop the trans from below. He has a aluminum sub frame. I may have to pull it all from the top.

If im not mistaken, you have to pull it from up top...btw he really got his moneys worth out of that tranny..is going with a Jasper (rebuilt) or a used (junkyard) tranny? Have fun with the install!!!
