Started cleaning up the transmission today. It’s going to take multiple passes to get it as good as the block, but I’m fine spending a little bit of time on it. But, that wasn’t the interesting portion of today. Let’s zoom in.


Orange RTV (or equivalent sealing agent.) This transmission has been apart before.

Taking off the cover that goes over the 5th gear cog reveals some interesting things. This car is supposed to have about 136k miles on it. This is too clean, too new for 136k. Thinking it’s been rebuilt, which would be an awesome bonus attached to this car. I can’t be 100% sure though without cracking the transmission case, and it’s not worth doing that. But, just seeing this gives me hope that this transmission will handle the power the GT25R will throw at it.

Anyway, that is all.
