Yay! I'm so happy we finally found a transmission. Removes the hassle of disassembling mine. The driveshaft was just a lucky find.

Grab a spare inspection plate for the floor and mess around with the slot. That's my suggestion!

Do you have a part number for the plate? I'll order one if I can.

AVM Hubs should've shipped today so I'm happy about that.
