Re[2]: Nose Cone

Externally the tranny looks fine (yes, there is a tranny under all that 
oil).  Internally...probably looks like metallic paste.  I don't really 
know the internals but I'm guessing that my case and nose cone is okay -- 
luckily I don't need to send it in for a core!  However, the tranny is a 
Type I (the case number starts out 113-...) but, from what I gather so far, 
the nose cone is still a T3, right (I don't know, now)?

I've been debating what to do with it (the thrashed tranny).  Make it into 
a burly-assed ash tray?...nope, I quit smoking four years ago...use it as a 
door stop?...right, and throw my back out when ever I want to actually use 
it!...slice-n-dice it so it acts like one of those cutaway models like they 
use when showing off the internals of something?...hmmm, getting warmer, 
kinda like that idea...how about using the case and attaching a starter so 
I can start an engine without it being in the car?...wow, I really like 
that idea and I wouldn't need the nose cone!  Maybe this will work out for 
both of us?

Right now everything is still in the car.  I gotta organize the garage a 
little more to make room to store the drive train once I pull it.  Then 
patiently await for the five-speed...
