Yes, that is the exact same one.

And my hart skipped a beat when I saw his Bonneville parked next to it with the BOnneville club forums sticker on the side!

I thought the person before you did it as a precautionary measure? And that tranny shop did a bad job causing it to fail. Or I could be thinking of someone else.

Kinda both -I never really heard what the symptom'* were at the time of the first rebuild, but the second time it was a bearing that had checked out good at the time of the first rebuild, but due to how the tranny fluid flows to one side on left turns, combined with who all know'* what happened between the first rebuild and when I got it, the bearing wore out really quick and wore a groove in the main input shaft which in turn broke. Hence why I became stranded at a stop light.

yes it is the one from tom peck i got out of there a 5995 plus all the damn fees in the long run it is a 200 dollar payment due to the fact that no banks like to place a loan on a car older then 99 so the interest rate is pretty high but i didnt notice any damage to the front end or rear it all looked perfect. i doubt a older couple in their 50'* would be in a wreck in a car like this like said earlier the CCR is out but from what i hear it doesnt make that big of a difference. only apparent problem was swaybar links in the front told them to replace them before i buy it they replace all sway bar links front and back so its in great shape. boreas if you wanna come out and see it thats fine just PM me.
