Brad stopped by on sunday and “helped” me take the transmission out. By helping, I mean I held the light and watched as he did a bunch of wrenching under the car. Good thing, too, because there were some hidden bolts, and I would have forgotten to disconnect the ground strap.
For those of you that have never seen the inside of a transmission, it is a bit daunting, lots of gears and arms, all covered with oil.
It’s just weird stuff. Thank goodness I’ve got Brad to help on this.
Here’s a closeup of the gears.
The underside of the car where the transmission mounts to the engine is just a mess.
