Of course as you all may know, I bought Sk8r's car yesterday. I got everything home with no issues. Honda Ridgelines don't tow too badly.
I got a few pictures after loading.
Right now, the car is a driveway fixture until I can get the trans pulled from one of my parts cars and get the car registered.
The only thing I've done was pull the 5th gear cover from the trans. Looks like chewed gears. 5th is fine, but there are shavings in the oil.
Can anyone tell me what this clip is supposed to go to? It was lodged under between the bearing and gear on the output side.
Overall, I think the trans is toast. I thought it was just a bad shift fork to begin with, but I'm thinking it may be more serious. When I get time, I'll continue the trans teardown and keep photos posted of that as well.
