    A460 transmission, parts, or compatible transmission

    Hello,

    I purchased an 1984 Plymouth Horizon with the 1.6 liter engine and I believe that the transmission has issues. Only second gear works and the person I got it from did not know how to drive a manual transmission (gear grinding).

    I have not pulled the transmission out and looked at it, though to be honest I would have to get a repair manual (first time).

    I got this car to save money on gas due to finances, so I was wondering if anyone knew these transmissions and their failure points, though I was told I cannot get parts, or a different model transmission that would bold in with the same gear ratio.

    Thank you for your time and help.

    Hi, welcome to t-m. I have an A460 I'd like to get rid of. It's been sitting in the garage for years, ever since I pulled it from a Rampage project that never got completed.

    remember he needs it with a 1.6 bellhousing

    there'a another thread on this - I posted wondering what from a 525 could be swaped into his 1.6's 4 speed trans case - if the case is still good

    if the 525 parts can fit it's more likely the trans can be fixed that replaced with another 1.6 trans at this date

    From the pictures he posted over on turbododge.com, I don't think there is anything salvagable from the old one. He had a picture with lots of chunks...
