The reason I ask. The 86 Brat I picked up for a song and not even a full dance, that has a smoked clutch and I can't get it in 1st. gear. Most likely why the clutch is gone. I can get it to go in low range and everything else in the drivetrain seems to work like it should. Have you run into this before? Is there an easy fix for this or should I just put in the 5sp out of a 87 eab2 parts car I bought?

i would say clutch, usually the only major repair they need, along with axles.

I believe my clutch was giving me problems cause my car was loaded with camping gear and 4 people, climbing a mountainside.
With a Brat or a Hatch, your looking at CV's as your weakest link, and the clutch as a close second, depending on the brand of clutch.
Also, you can find front CV axles at any Kragen, Schuck's, or Checkers for like $55 to $70, with a core charge. Core's arent a problem cause i never need a broken CV Twice I have gotten away with calling Kragen, and telling them I was quoted $63 for a complete axle from Napa, and they'll beat napa's price by 5%. Might wanna call napa for a real quote though, just to compare.
