    Do you have some tips for a quick transmission inspection (1G AWD).
    "Suppose" to came from a good running engine/car.

    For the ones following my build thread, its the tranny from the rotten 1ga i bought a year ago. Never saw it run.
    I still have some work to do before touching the tranny, but im thinking at what i will do with it.

    If you're asking for external inspection no. That will tell you very little. Only real thing I can think of is how does fluid look and does the input shaft have any play. If the input has play plan it needs to be addressed.

    Push/pull the shift levers and make sure it goes into all gears.

    While we're on the topic, yesterday I finally pulled my trans and checked the input and output shafts and shift/select levers.

    The input was rock solid, no in-out or side-to-side play, just smooth rotation with matching rotation from the output shaft and side gears.

    The output, though, while it didn't move side-to-side, it did move around 1/16-1/8" in-out. Is that bad?

    The shift/select levers had clean and precise action and did what they were supposed to do.
