I could do that you right it would look "SICK". I have extra paint left over when I painted the motor. So that is the plan to paint it the same color so they match.

It dosen't feel broke down or smell bad what do you guys think I should do?
Jim;

If you can't verify when the tranny oil was last serviced, I would definitely change it. After a while in the tranny with no use, any sediment settles to the bottom. The oil may not smell burnt but a few dollars worth of oil wont break you and it's great assurance that you know now when it has been done. Old oil doesn't need to smell burnt to lose it's properties that keep the tanny running well.
