[DML] Re: Transmission Shaft Nut Hole

I just got a earlt vin 00894m with 13,888 miles & it was parked 10 
years ago because of trans seal leak? I put it on the hoist to do an 
162 point inspection & I noticed the trans leaking I went to look & 
there was this big "ol" hole that should'nt have been there so I 
have to wait for the owner to approve repairs, the shaft bolt is so 
far out I can turn the nut from under the car with end cap still on 
trans. Car has no frame rust just the average shocks,Spring control 
arms sway bar rust, interior is clean with no cracks any were, fuse 
panel is mint.
