I also checked the microfiches and can confirm that the part was changed in 08. Interestingly enough a bunch of other transmissions parts have been gradually updated since 96 as well.

When we have the first 08s blow up, maybe it's time to look at having a replacement made. It's always the drive gear that breaks, right?

Does anybody have an idea how much a single gear like this could cost if you make a batch of 50 or so out of better material?

By the way, you forgot to add my buddy Klay to the list (hi Klay! ), see post # 65.
