Default 6 speed trans - needs TLC

The memory is failing but I think it's a 2001 trans with approx. 195k on it. The good: it made the car move in both directions when removed. The bad: it works very poorly. So poorly that the crap 5sp (w/ bad synchros and a 2nd gear that sometimes isn't there) that I put in is better.

Features:
-the synchros are bad
-3rd gear is REALLY bad
-it does odd things, twice it wouldn't roll with the clutch in and I could only take it out of gear with the motor shut off. Some sort of slider/shift fork/rod problem I'd guess.

It works but do not use it as is. It NEEDS to be opened, fixed and freshened up. If it doesn't sell then I might rebuild it or more likely, have a pro do it.

I'll include the sloppy shifter that came with it.

$300 shipped in the USA. The usual massive discount for active duty.

Crap.

Wish I had a couple of hundred to throw at a local pickup.

What a deal.

For you? If you are at all interested I'll give you a smokin' semi-local deal. I'd even take things in trade. Why do you want a POS trans? I did mention that it's a POS right?
