    Got one, but I'm a bit leery of pressure washing a component that is getting bolted right onto the replacement engine. Were it like the block it came out of the car with, I might, since that block is getting stripped and going right to Gilligans buddy out near Fitzies to get tanked and checked out. But this trans is going right back in the car, so it's the delicates cycle for it :) Dodged a bullet because the fancy-pants dual mass flywheel ($500) is in good shape. Not taking any chances on getting water up in this thing :)

    Annd after a second check, its toast. So looks like a conversion to a single mass flywheel is in order. Still $500, but brings a new clutch with it......... Oh well, for a 175k drivetrain, to be expected.
