Do you say that because of what looks like deep bluish discoloration in some spots or some other reason? Not saying you're wrong (not at all), just trying to learn what signs mean what.

If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers.

A very expensive lesson for the owner! I hate to imagine the price of the cluster gear and input shaft alone.
