Other things that have been going on lately. 

So over the last few months I fixed the throttle problem and drove it just fine for a while until the whining transmission noise kept getting worse and worse.

At this point I knew I had to order a new transmission soon, so I went to O'reillys and ordered another refurbished w56 5 speed from them, waited about a week and brought it home and started to tear down the truck to replace the tranny.

After a day of taking the exhaust off and taking out the bolts (first time transmission replacement) I dropped the tranny and found out both front and rear bearings in the transmission were completely shot and sounded kind of like a bad skateboard wheel.

After all this and a little bit of hammering a heat shield back for clearance I was able to get the tranny back in and bolted up the next day and driving better then ever! So if you ever have a manual transmission that's getting noisy and have the tools and car jacks to take out the tranny then it's better and cheaper to do it yourself.

Over all I'd say I spent about $1,500 on the replacement, $1,350 for the tranny and the rest in fuel and random parts I needed, so it was actually pretty cheap and fairly easy to do. Anyways hope you guys liked this adventure of mine and you all have a good one!

Any one got any ideas on trying to fix a tranny? My BA10/5 is stuck in 4th. Is there any way I can try and get it to shift again or is it just done?
