    Last Sunday I had to be towed home from 30 miles out of town. Input shaft was toast. The tranny won't be ready until Monday because the shop had to order the input shaft. I won't be back on the road until Wed. :(



    Anyone know of a better tranny that is a direct replacement?



    Update:

    It was a bad input shaft. There is no aftermarket replacement, so a new OEM input shaft was installed for the 3rd time. I hope this one lasts a while.



    If I had known about the manual transmission being the weakest link in the drivetrain I would have went with a automatic transmission.
