    The great team at DMCFL tackled the transmission install...

    Flywheel and crossover pipe:

    Clutch and pressure plate:

    Transmission etc.:

    They did a cross gate cable adjustment and now it's better than ever.

    Done:

    The results:

    1) It shifts positively in all gears.

    2) The clutch action is smooth and strong.

    3) The clutch pedal action is fairly light and quiet.

    4) The engine revs very smoothly. ( I'm glad I had the balancing done for good measure)

    After 2 days of shakedown driving, I'm happy.

    I'd like to thank everyone that helped me through this frustrating problem. But in the end, it forced me to refurbish my driveline, and I wound up with a transmission with flaws/weaknesses corrected.

    Here's my advice to everyone driving a manual: If you ever start to hear gear whine, (especially in 3rd and 4th gears) on deceleration/ coasting, that's more than likely a sign of the shaft nut beginning to back off. You need to drain the gear oil, take the back cover off the transmission and inspect/ deal with the nut. That's much easier and less expensive to do before the damage inevitably happens.

    That was a total fluke! Way more people were ogling (and appreciating) your car than mine that day, I figured you would be a shoe-in for the win.

    Ha! Yes definitely. Funny thing is, the first thing I do when I get home from a highway trip in any car is to wipe the front bumper good with a wet microfiber cloth. Around here, we have love bugs which can ruin your paint if left on.
