Paid someone to take out the transmission and clean it up and replace worn parts, deal with a fussy clutch, replace all the filters, change the oil, replace various worn belts and tubes and discs, and just give it a really good look-see for other issues. (Will be dealing with suspension and timing chain next.)

I did this to my old fx4 5-spokes; so I decided to do it to my newly aquired Alcoas. I took off each wheel and tire and took some wesley's tire cleaner to the tire and the wheel. I cleaned the backside of the wheels and tires really wee because I got tired of everytime they get wet, brown brakedust leaking off the back to the front! They were NASTY! No pics because I had to beat the dark.
