so just a rant, so as most of you know ive had a tin man hanging from the tow hook on the rear of my car for sometime now, i go out to lunch today and notice it missing and figure ok ill put a new something on it tonight, well that new something gets to be a transmission, i back out of my parking spot and hear a pop, dont think much about it and dont make a quarter mile down the road before it starts making all sorts of noise. get it trailered home and sure enough its true, trans is trashed, no warning, no racing, no nothing. so all in all i guess there is some truth to the saying "never ride alone." at least i got 120k out of the original clutch, and trans still moves, oh well at least i bought a plymouth acclaim from a customer yesterday for $100. i guess its time for a six speed

Man that sucks. These transmissions are so weird. Mike is putting 340 to the wheels and still running :roll:
