    not sure where to find a good used one. or how much it "should" cost for a used one. i checked some local junk yards and they want like 1200$ and it has over 100k miles on it.

    Um...get your transmission rebuilt or buy a used one maybe? :shrug: I don't see what's so difficult to understand here that it would require research...

    Go get some quotes on a rebuild and then compare that to transmission prices. Call up some of the engine importing companies and ask if they have any B16 gearboxes. Just make sure it's a hydro tranny and not a cable one. Check E-Bay, Craigslist, local forums, etc....

    Just buy a used one. Rebuilding those transaxles will cost you more.

    Gear speed can get you a rebuilt tranny for about $750 plus shipping. I think it is worth spending money on a part you know is going to perform perfectly then taking the chance on a used tranny. If you get a used one it is probably just beat into the ground like every other b series tranny for sale. I dont know about you guys but I dont like doing work twice if I dont have to.
