Well, it happened.... the transmission blew up on me last night.
Wasn't even racing, or doing nothing to stress it, I was taking it out of gear to stop at a red light. It felt different, and would not get back into gear, plus a big puddle of tranny fluid on the pavement.

Well this weekend I'll be finding out if the tranny off a 86 2L engine fits, since it's the only thing I have lying around, and the Getrag trannies are so hard to find around here... The only one I could get is a Muncie 4 speed unit
Seems like people have done this before, and everything points to the fact that the 2L Isuzu tranny fits (same clutches).

If all works, I should be able to litterally climb walls with my car, since the gear ratios are so different!

Sorry for the long post.. just had to vent a bit....
