Gents - Thank you for all your comments. My mechanic has dug in, and I do indeed need a new pump ( as mentioned by some above:). Finding a pump is now proving difficult. I will reach out to the contacts above (thank you @natejgreene9871 ). Would anyone here have one they were willing to sell, or a have a lead on one?

Many Thanks!

I’m my opinion, it takes so much effort to remove the transmission you may as well put a fully rebuilt unit back in. You’re looking at 2k just in labor. Another 2k for a fully rebuilt unit from sun valley.

Hard to say, just depends on if you plan to keep this car and how nice it is.

Well I have lucked out, and I have located a complete transmission locally from a donor car. The donor car only has approximately 90,000km (55,00miles). Something catastrophic happened to the engine in the donor car. The transmission swap will be happening on Dec 14th. Fingers crossed!

How is that even possible where you live in BFN?

Luck works in both directions!!! I am also the first person to harvest this car. Should any member here be in search of a part, please PM me, and I will put you in touch with the gentleman with the car.
