Naw, this is just my "karmic price" for the sheer amount of turnkey AutoX, TimeAttack, and TopDown I've gotten out of this car.

You know, if you ever decide to sell this car I think you should just print out and include this thread with the pitch. I'd buy it - given the quality of maintenance and the care you put into making things "right". Nice work man.

Mother fucker!

With Wally & Matt & Jon's help I did the TOB and put the transmission back into the s2000 yesterday.

Today I finished reconnecting all the things I had to disconnect to lower the motor.

Started it.

The loud "thwack thwack" noise is still there. It's not the clutch/TOB, it seems (from using an extension for some ghetto stethoscope work) to be coming from the middle of the transmission.

It goes away when the clutch is pressed, it does it in neutral.

I really wanted to be "done" wrenching so I could park this thing for winter... Oh well, guess there's no rush (at the moment) to fix it.

Oh, and I broke the little plastic cup on the end of the shift lever... So I _do_ have something to add to the "wheel bearing & hub" order after all.

This thread is a solid reminder of why you shouldn't track your daily. That said, Grant - are there any winter AutoX's planned for Castrol?

Input shaft or input shaft bearing noise? A transmission is a magic black box to me, even after years of shade tree mechanics.

Also, all 944 transmissions whine and make terrible noises. The consensus seems to be "that's how you know it's still working".

Maybe the fix is a louder exhaust?

That's almost word for word the same as me...
