    welcome to my world! last year I had my drive shaft rebuilt, new bearings and seals in the rear end, and new fly wheel; all of these eqaulled $1000. now in the past month, I've had new regulator cable for the back window, new blower motor so I could have heat, and just put a new water pump on. this is what my mechanic does to me everytime I come by /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    hopefully, it'll get where I can work on a new paint job in the next months and new wheels and tires!

    Sounds like it's in the linkage before the clutch unless you have absolutely no clutch left.
