I have 120,000 miles on mine with no problem, except getting around to changing the oil. BTW what kind of oil should I put in it.

The only standard transmission problem I've had was on my wifes Datsun B210, the case bolts came loose and the oil ran out. I tightned it and filled it and it was left with a "funny" sound for years. It finally lost its sense of humor and was making outright rude sounds. When I took the drain plug out pieces of metal came out It turned out to be the soft metal of a $15 bearing cage
