I have 5th gear again! I bought a 147K transmission from Ben Hackworth in western Virginia (not to be confused with West Virginia
) for $215 + a used front ST sway bar. The tranny was actually sitting at a shop in Richmond, and Joe Henderson brought it up to me a couple weeks ago at the Summit Point NASA thing.

I had the transmission installed last Friday, and everything appears to be working OK, especially 5th gear. The gears seem kinda notchy, but I suspect that's 'cause I'm used to a transmission with Redline in it.
Tuan, gpser96's ace mechanic who installed the tranny, said the fluid that was in there looked kinda gunky and it would be best to run some generic stuff for a few hundred miles before putting in good stuff.

I'm just glad I'm not a rolling chicane anymore on the D.C. Beltway cruising in 4th at 60mph. Although you'd be surprised that I actually passed some people.
