im wondering if the input shaft in to the gearbox has collapsed its bearing its a needle race and the shafts would rotate at different speeds hence the bearing if that bearing has bunched up and locked the shafts together that would lock the trans up . with one wheel up put it in gear and rock the wheel back n forth and watch the gears as they move and follow this movement back till theres no movement

I asked that in case you had a fault which affected the right hand wheel only.

would that cause my motor to not turn over by hand. It seems to me after pondering a while that even if the tranny locked up, the motor would still turn over. They are only connected by the clutch right???? It seems to me I have a motor problem.

your engine should still turn with the clutch pressed unless you have a clutch issue and thats whats locking things up solid . hows the motor for oil and water etc can you rock the motor crank back n forth at all even a slight amount of movement in the crank would indicate its not seized .

oh right thats starting to sound like it could be seized on the crank . you have to take the clutch out to remove the engine so if you get the clutch out and you find you can turn the crank thats a bit of luck . you could drop the pan off and look at the big ends and see if one looks a bit blue like its been hot then slacken it off and see i it comes free
