>Last fall, I complained to the list of a disturbing "whirring" noise when
>decelerating in 3rd gear.  I checked the trans. oil (an over-drive unit)
>the level was half way between add and full.  There always has been alot of
>play in the gear shift, and Barney Gaylord suggested the gear bushing was
>bad, and was kind enough to send me one.  Well, I finally installed it
>today, and the noise did not go away!  The play in the shifter is gone
>though, and when I took it apart I discovered that the old bushing wasn't
>just wasn't even there!!!  Anyway, I assume then that I have
>damage to 3rd gear.  My question is:  Can I continue to drive it and just
>not down shift to third to slow down?  Or will I do even more damage by
>driving it?
