Well, I finaly got the new rebuilt transmission and the new clutch and pressure plate in. Man that tranny shifts like butter!!!! I put synthetic 10w-30 in it, and I'll run it with that for a week or so and then drain it and put some of that syncro mesh you all have been raving about in it. But man, it is awesome now.
I ended up going with a Saches (sp?) Clutch. It was only $115 for the clutch, pp, and bearing through work, so I went the cheap way for now. I get a good one when I drop the DOHC in it. This one seems to hold all right though, for now.
Sure wish I'd replaced the mounts though. Now that the clutch holds good, I can really feel the motor and tranny moving when I get on it hard. Oh well.

Yeah, I got quoted almost $1200 to have my clutch replaced. I had never done one before, but to save that much money, I grabbed the manuals and tools and got to work. It's really not that hard. Also replaced the rear main seal, flywheel, mounts, axle seals, and driveaxles.

You can replace the mounts fairly easily. Best price I found was at NAPA. $11 for each of the two tranny mounts, and $14 for the engine mount. The most expensive was the dogbone, replaced it with a Fiero Store version.
