You are talking getting parts verse's how the transmission holds up, true the parts are getting few and far between but this transmission can take a licking, believe me and ask anyone who know's me I put this thing thru it's pace's all the time and so far (knock wood)It's hanging in there.

And if you keep your eye's open you can usually find a spare for around $500 or less, which is a lot cheaper than trying to buy replacement parts.

My 2 cents,

oh and if you switch it out let me know, I'm always looking for good spares.

Absolutely, parts and durability go together....the less durable, the more parts you need. I don't believe a 40 something year old European transmission will last forever. A Muncie, a Borg Warner, Tremec, sure...Getrag orphan...no confidence.

I also have no faith in the previous owner and since I can't ask him questions I'm assuming worst case scenario....

I'm glad your transmission is invincible..happy for you even...I don't have that kind of luck
