My Manta Montage is running a 5 speed Porsche transmission, but while the transmission is in decent shape, it's basically impossible to get it to shift. As you can see below, like most standards, shifting is controlled by a rod that rotates (which corresponds to pushing the shift lever left and right) and goes in and out (which correspons to pushing the shift lever forward and backward).

Problem is, there's a little too much play in the system, as well the ranges of movement not being quite right, so the transmission is difficult to get into gear, let alone shift while driving… So I think I'm going to have to disassemble the whole thing and rebuild it from scratch…

Other than that, I have the computer that will be running BMEvideo set up with the custom management sofware and processing submissions (although it's very slow)… the problem now is going to be figuring out how I can upload massive amounts of data from here in La Paz…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
