On a clear evening we should be able to flash headlights if we got the right elevations. However - it's sort of a car hell come winter round here - follow by the annual spring frost heave culling of the motoring herd into donors and beaters for following winter.. :/ .. Very nice through the summer though, constant ocean breezes and Christmas is usually a postcard too. I was pretty sure it wasn't a gearbox - they just usually start slipping out of gear.. I'm surprised you've lost a mount on a NG non-turbo - but it would explain the noise. Are you weeping oil from the engine seal on that end? I would still have them take a peak around the hubs for anything else that is coming up before foul weather season starts in earnest. Don't want the lads playing hurley with your gear knob next spring.. :) .. -- J Dexter - webmaster - http://www.dexterdyne.org/ all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in - RealAudio 8+ Required - all the Time Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Louis Prima Keely Smith - Hey Boy Hey Girl http://www.dexterdyne.org/888/146.RAM
