Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers

Q: when you say transmission is operable does that meen you can drive it anywhere but makes noise while in 2nd and 3rd gears (8/16/20 10:22 PM)
A: Yes, it runs and is operable. I would be hesitant to drive it a long distance until the noise has been diagnosed. (8/17/20 9:54 AM)
Q: if you were to buy this item would you trust to drive it or would it need trailered (8/16/20 10:24 PM)
A: That would depend on how far away you'd be going with it. I'd say local and surrounding communities, it should be fine. Until the noise has been diagnosed, I myself, wouldn't drive it too far. The transmission shifts fine, but has a noise. (8/17/20 10:59 AM)
