How much does one of your transmission weigh?

65 pounds. Close to what yours weighs, if I remember talking about that from earlier...

I'm notsure if I have ever weighed one. All I know is I can pretty easily haul it around with one hand, so it must not be too heavy.

I worked on the car most of this afternoon, with a couple of breaks for family stuff.

Rather exciting, good sir, rather exciting indeed. I hope you had the tranny in neutral while trying to put it on!

Time for a speedometer swap!

Anyway, in the two transmissions I've done I don't think I've remembered to put either in neutral, just get some bolts threaded and sneak it on is my strategy these days, but I'll have to remember in the future.

Glad you're happy with it!

Of course, I also have the gauge cluster from the red ForkenSwift in the garage. So that's definitely an option.

Hmm, I like my trouble free speedo that will work with any transmission, or mehbe it's my trouble free transmission that will work with any speedo. Or mehbe it's my trouble free auto manufacturer.

Strangeness.

According to Google Earth, my odo (and speed I assume also) is under-reporting by about 5.7%.
