I have not seen this kind of paranoia since I screwed with Flat Earth Society forums a decade ago.
If they don't take this last registration, get f****d EaglesDen.

You know it is possible that if one of your proposed usernames is similar to the one from your flat earth days there may be a flat-earther mod on the Beagle'sDen that remembers blocking your application.

Sheesh! This woulda been easier if it had a TBI.

Nice thing is you have all the technical info.

I've been fooling around with Bosch K-Jet on an old Peugeot, everything there relies on correct fuel pressure, and correctly routed vacuum lines

The Prophecy was fulfilled.
Well, I guess that writes off any personal expenses for the next six months.

The transmission was dropped and an inspection was performed. The fluid was found to be burned indeed while particles were found in the filter and the pump had failed. A used transmission is not available (that I already knew) so the only viable solution is to have this transmission torn down and completely rebuilt, which at the least comes with an 80000km warranty. Now that figure is worst-case. If they find components in the transmission are still good that cost will go down but this is still a costly mistake.
whoa, I have to catch up reading on this, but you should have a 998 or 904 in that right? and in some cases the 727 can be fit...rebuilt, $1000 oughta do it and the R&R aint that bad, about an hour each way if you are experienced

couple hundred on an M50d, a little less for an SROD, 3G for a vw M6...it all depends

Dude, I'm a transmission mechanic, and even I don't know what you're talking about lol.

Also, he already had the trans rebuilt.

yes, I had 6 more pages of reading to do, but M5OD is a mazda built, ford used 5spd with overdrive from the 80s 90s etc, SROD is also a ford et al used 3spd + od used with many gearsets and many forms everywhere - ford, jeep etc and the VW trans is the 6spd they adopted in mid 00's what has to have the input bearings replaced from the inside and is a miserable biotch to work on. point is, the first 2 manuals, inout, output bearings, seals, bushings etc, excluding hard parts like gears are only a couple hundred in parts and a few hours of your life and most people can do them on their front porch while sipping mint juleps.

I hope that damn transmission never gives me another problem ever again, or in the next 80000km.

You misunderstand. I'm a legit transmission mechanic. I was trying to say that paying a proper mechanic to R&R and rebuild a manual transmission is an expensive thing nowadays. Parts may be only a couple hundred, but that's also true of automatic transmissions. It's really just a market thing, nobody rebuilds manual's anymore, so the going rate has gone way up.

Not to mention the fact that, no, MOST people could not, in fact, rebuild any transmission on their porch. At least, not if my imbecile customers are any indication of the average motorist's intelligence.

Now the cost of rebuilding manuals makes sense to me.

Just about anyone who drives the newest cars and can't turn a wrench--or even use their mirrors--is an imbecile. Any imbecile who can use a manual at all probably burns them up pretty fast.

I had to have a clutch replaced once, but not a manual transmission. The pressure plate went bad, too much city driving.

That's the only drawback to a manual in my opinion. I get bored easily with automatics so an occasional clutch replacement would be worth the tradeoff. I'd just learn to replace them myself, that's how I get almost everything else done.
