During the process of removing my starter for its trip to the hospital I have stumbled onto the dreaded "might as well's". I thought since I was already under the car that I might as well take a look at the transmission mounts. Bad idea. The mounts have the consistency of old jello, same for the stay rod mounts. Isn't that the way it always works? You fix one thing and something else is waiting. As my dear wife always reminds me, "Don't get to excited, the car is 31 years old." My question is, how big of a pain is it going to be to pull the transmission member and clean and repaint it and change all these mounts and bushings? As always any input is appreciated.
