Transmission is in and it works :P I took it for a test drive with a pressure gauge connected and the pressures are in spec, it shifts nice and firm through the gears I didn't drive for to long because my new temperature sender is faulty so have to wait for a new one to arrive.

I noticed my strut mounts were starting to bulge out so I pulled them out and they are cracked, I'm not surprised they are nolathane after all :lol:

Spent a couple of hours driving around today testing the transmission and it shifts perfectly, transmission temperature is running between 80 to 90 degrees with some hard pulls, damn I have missed driving this car :turbo:
