    I just got my '88 2.3L 5spd on the road today. I already know it needs a trans rebuild.

    I was driving around with it today and I notice when I shift i feel a weird vibration, feels like the motor is gonna blow up. Now that I think of it I remembered that as it idles the bottom pulley wobbles..Could this cause it? I remember the guy I bought it from saying "I also did bearings in the motor" what bearings? who knows...maybe you can help me figure it out...

    What next?

    you might want to check that wobbling... hopefully the bolt is just a little loose, and the thing isnt bent. there shouldnt be ANY reason why a pulley is bent. Nothing ever comes in contact with the pulley. heh.
