    Thanks Arne.
    About the trans, that's kind of what I suspected. The donor was a car at U-pull-it, no way to test it out. Got it for $100 though, so a good gamble.
    I can't decide if I want the auto...

    Delphi fuel Pump any good?

    Well I've pretty much ruled out getting the Airtex/Master pump since I've heard bad things about them.

    The Bosch one is 275, a little too much for me.

    The Delphi one is about 160, so it is a...

    I had this trouble at the junkyard when removing handles. You have to use pliers on the platic clip and pull the rod out. Not really a trick, keep trying and you'll get it.

    Thanks
    So is the whole windshield tinted, or just a strip at the top? If so, any guess on the VLT%? Is it noticably tinted, or just slightly?
    Do you think $150 for the glass only is a fair price??
