Re: What to do with a Dead LT?
Well Tony...it is your tranny that has failed. I wanted to check some preliminary things before a major disassembly. This afternoon I did get it to shift gears on the lift, but then upon draining the oil from the tranny, this is what I found (see pics). The oil is full of metal (even some chunks from what looks like a bearing cage) indicating that indeed, the tranny needs to be replaced. You can begin your search for a replacement. Sorry to give you the bad news, but we figured so anyway.
It also looks like you have a leaking main seal, but I'll verify that once we are in there. And, BTW, I would STRONGLY suggest that we replace all seals and probably the clutch plate and spring (plus a few other parts) while we are in there unless you have replaced them before. I'm in no hurry, just wanted to give you an update! I'll give you a call to discuss in the next day or so and then we'll get the parts in as you can get them. Gotta run for now.
