So my R150f has progressively shifted worse and worse.

It never spilt transffluid during manual conversion. Thought it was odd. Check it and topped it off with bullshit AutoZone gear oil. I've taught a female friend how to drive stick. After that at some point it was hard to get in gear. I thought may be the old Speedo gear elbow had let fluid seep out over time (trying to think of other possibilities than my tiny friend fucking it up). Topped it off with the same shit gear oil. Drives worse now. Have a hard time getting into 1st other gears are starting to get annoying. You hear/feel some teeth just barely not fucking up.

I've read that recline mt90 does wonders. The other possibility is that the clutch is not oem, but some store bought piece of shit and its faded that fast.

Thoughts? Besides Jacob is a dumbass again.

Wish this bell housing had inspection plates like the r154. I could at least trouble shoot the clutch without having to drop it and be ready to replace it at the same time.
No.

Only slightly related.  My buddy opened up an r154 we bought to rebuild and this is what it looked like on the inside:

Looks kind of like Redline shock-proof heavy)

Or just a mixture of several, non-compatible fluids, that curdled...

Demesio, I had looked at the pedal once or twice. I noticed it was kinda fucked, but didn't think it'd make that big of a difference. I guess that I'll have to pull it out and add some metal back with the TIG welder.

For the time being, I just threw in the only bolt on hand that match the ID.

While we're here. Which fluid? When I was building the 1st cressida everyone swore by Toyota atf IV or something. Truck guys like the red line mt-something.
No.

mt90 or shock proof, still using mt90 here and it's held up okay.



My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

haha When he first sent the pictures I just saw the housing one, and I was like damn they really went overboard with the fipg but ya looks more like the fluid chunked up or something didn't even know it was possible.

 

On a different note I always put mt-90 in my R1s and even w58s


 

why do we spend our time and money on shitty cars that cant love us back?
