I have replaced -one- wheel bearing...passenger side. I thought that
was where the noise was coming from. I was wrong. :)
I have another bearing coming for the driver's side. I hope that's it.
I did not know about the roll pin for 2nd gear. I sometimes find the
tranny difficult to downshift into 2nd gear, so I usually don't. It
up-shifts into 2nd, smoothly. Thanks for the info.
I'm pretty gentle on the tranny.
