It has 12 years of local driving, so I agree it is a core, but it still does have the Peloquins and taller 4th (these wouldn't be replaced in a rebuild), so I will price it according to the special pa ...

FWIW, I am waiting on Todd @Subarugears to let me know how the fit up would be with the RMW engine carrier, and his Vanagon transmission mount.

OK, so I just received a Subaru 6 speed transaxle TY756 cable shift. This is getting installed in my DOKA with a Subaru engine.
