[DML] Re: Manual transmission observation

Change the clutch line ASAP if not sooner. It's causing you to NOT 
disengage the gears completely (your lazy clutch action). It's worse 
when hot since the line balloons. This will quicky, if it has not 
already, wear out the sliding gear teeth and break the second gear 
shift rollpin. The sliding gear is hard to buy/expensive. The rollpin 
is about $1 but is buried pretty deep in the trans. I have no idea 
why this wears out the expensive sliding gear and not the relatively 
inexpensive brass syncro ring, but that's how it works.

Dave S - just rebuilt another one this week, one more on the floor
