Good point, I'll do that. I did give it a go in the garage with me sitting on it just now. It moved but felt like it was slow in doing it. I'll pull it apart and see how everything looks later.
I remember seeing it here but can't find it now and the service manual doesn't say...what kind of oil do I use in the tranny?
