    if you leave the oil dropping on the clutch, expect to have to replace it almost immidiately because it will slide much much faster.
    "drop the tranny" as in they really disassembled the tranny, removed all the gears and put 'em back together like a chinese puzzle?

    'coz that's what they did. they also said the seal needed replacement as the clutch would go out much faster. and it seemed like a good idea, no problems so far. i was just shocked by the 4000-peso "transmission overhaul" labor charge. when all they did was take out the gears and wash 'em in gasoline. that was pure profit! (no materials cost whatsoever).

    AFAIK, you don't need a machine to flush a m/t because the gear oil is just used to bathe the gears. It does not go through a pump or through a torque converter wherein it cannot be drained out when you remove the pan unless you use a machine similar to Transtech.

    I used to read around here that you could 'gargle' the system if you wanted to. Basically drain old fluid, refill with el cheapo gear oil, drive for a while, drain el cheapo stuff, fill with proper fluids.

    that's what I have in mind too, I just thought (long shot) that maybe such a flush system also exists for M/T trannys.

    WHAT? kalokohan yan to open up the tranny and wash the gears. there is absolutely no reason to do that. you only break open the bell housing if you need to replace one of the gears or synchros.
