This thread points to the necessity of good mechanic fore-sight: whenever the transmission is removed from the car for whatever reaons, take care of all the seals (even they are not leaking) because of the labor costs (seals are cheap but labor of removing trans very expensive).

1. Clutch Job: do the clutch but a good mechanic will ALSO replace:
- Engine's RMS
- Man Trans seals x4
(Auto Trans seals x3)

2. Changing transmission, same deal as #1.

3. Replacing RMS, same deal as #1.
