"...but he did save your transmission."
kind of weird to find out after the fact that one's entire transmission was in danger of needing replacement-- because of two badly engineered bolts-- but that one's mechanic has saved it by spending the morning drilling said bolts out.
so replacing the bolts, which hold the transmission in place, is a little more, but there ya go. i kind of want to bring mark cookies or something; he didn't have to drill the bolts out, he could have just said, to hell with it, she can buy a whole new transmission.
jeff sounded even sadder than usual when he told me all of this, and kept saying, "i'm sorry".
he said the clutch plate would have gone in about 10k miles, so this was coming. at least it didn't happen while i was on the way to roswell... which is where i'll be in about 10k miles, i think.
yeah, i don't even like to think about that...

so you didn't need a new transmission? but you got a new clutch? do you have spacepod back yet? inquiring minds want to know.

as far as i know, i don't need a new transmission or flywheel, but the clutch was replaced.
have not heard from jeff today, but he thought spacepod would be ready today.
