Word to the wise...avoid transmission destruction

On the 5 spd Puegot, and probably every other standard with a top load shifter, there is a rubber boot where the shifter enters the transmission. When they get old and brittle they tear and eventually get lost entirely. Go into some deep, muddy water like that and you can wind up with an unhealthy amount of sludge in your transmission destroying your bearings and synchros. The fix is easy and cheap. The auto trans also has a boot on the top where the same thing can happen, I just don't know anything about this trans.
