I do have one last question, the piece of plastic almost shaped like a P I think it is the brake cam, is this part supposed to have about a half inch play in it when you rotate it left or right?

Yes it's normal for there to be about half inch of play in it.

ceeyahd1,

I merged your two topics into this one here. Being your questions were still about the same washer there was no point in starting a second topic.

Please keep your questions about this washer here in this topic. It will make it easier to help answer all your questions about the washer.

Thanks,

I want to thank everyone for the help. I don't know what I did wrong but I bought a new transission and clutch kit and the washer works better than new, the person at the appliance parts store that I found by accident 10 minutes away said the tranny and clutch were shot.

I have one last question, I asked the person at the part store if I needed to poke a hole at top of the gear case and he said no. What is the right thing to do?

The transmission has sealant over a breather hole in the top.  You need to remove the sealant so you don't blow out your seals.

They must plug that weephole to keep from losing oil. Never have ordered a new tranny. Makes sense though.
