Update time. After driving the car all summer it started to develop some issues. First issue was a noise when downshifting and when you had the clutch depressed. Second was that the shifter started to feel really sloppy and sometimes wouldn't shift at all. I decided it was time to remove the transmission and install my ACT streetlite flywheel, ACT 6 puck clutch with HD pressure plate, and new release and pilot bearings. When I removed the shifter I found NO shifter bushings! They had been mashed into a million pieces and where just mush basically. The release bearing was making noise, and the pilot bearing fell apart once the transmission was removed. The car now works much better, but I think the clutch master cylinder is also failing. I'll replace it and the slave cylinder in the spring. For now, it's tucked away for the winter.
