Grumble Grumble.... The side play on the trans sounds like a telltale. I'm used to VW transmissions, which are supposed to have quite a bit of slop in the input shaft so I didn't concern myself with the end play.... How much is normal? 1/8"? 1/16"? Less?

none...
1/32-1/64" i would say is normal...
1/16-1/8" is on its way out and will start making noise
1/8-1/4" major failure and can cause gear tooth damage

well, at least I know where the guy I bought the trans from works. He said that if it was bad he'd make good. We'll see.....

Re: Play in input-shaft-bearing (VX)

Hi, Molecule. Tried to PM you, but couldn't see the option. I'm a new member, here, but noticed in some of your old posts that you had a trusted (and affordable) tranny-rebuild guy. My VX trans has input-shaft bearing noise, and probably has end-play/slop (still in the car, but my original VX trans was pulled at 167K with >1/2" of slop and incredibly still shifting all gears!). I am not qualified to rebuild the trans by replacing bearings, so I'd love to buy an affordable rebuilt CX/VX/HX trans (I included HX as I have 14" HX rims on the VX Civic). Live in the SF Bay Area, CA Thanks!

this requires the tranny taken apart

also you wont see any metal bits in the oil because all honda tranny's have a magnet...
