What makes you think the trans is dead? There are other things that can sometimes appear to be transmission problems, particularly stuff like a broken or disconnected CV joint.

I don't know of a tech article off the top of my head, but it is relatively straight-forward. You support the rear of the engine, remove the muffler, disconnect everything from the trans, unbolt the starter (one nut is accessed from inside the engine bay!), unbolt the trans, and slide it out. It's about 75 lbs, so one person can handle it if they need to.

Ok, thank you Dave . Well , here is the skinny . I was driving down I 70 about five miles from my house . I was having trouble getting it into fourth gear . It didnt grind . It just wouldnt go . When I got it to go it wouldnt stay . I pulled off the highway a few miles later to see if I could figure it out . Then it wouldnt go into first or reverse . I just figured it was finished .Thanks for the car pics .

Ijust went through the same issues, symptoms exactly the same- what year is your car - mine is a 72 tail shifter - the coupling between the seats ( in the floor tunnel )- worked loose and slipped. My fault, I replaced all the bearings in the shift linkage and did not do it up tight enough!

Sounds more like a linkage problem than a tranny failure.

Agreed, this sounds like a linkage problem.

It's actually kind of difficult to wreck these gearboxes (minus first gear of course)

You may want to chek the shift rod. It has an inner part that fits into an outer sleeve. It is spot welded together and if the weld breaks, you wont be able to get into gear

If the bushings are over two years old then they are suspect. There are several places to check: the shifter itsself and the clamp bolt. Then the firewall bushing and right behind it is the coupler that has a cone screw that can come loose and two bushings. At the rear there is the rod bushing in the housing and then the cup bushing and cone screw at the very back. I would recommend replacing all the bushings, both screws and adjust things well and it should be fine.
