Whoops! While pulling my transmission out of the Loyale this morning I let the trans drop too far and bent one of the studs on the bellhousing of the engine. What should I do about this? I know the new trans will fit on it, but what about getting the nut on there?

If you didn't mangle the threads and can get the tranny into place the nut should still run okay on the stud although it might bind a bit at the bend.. If not then use another stud or a different bellhousing. EA-82 bellhousings are the same for MT and AT for what thats worth.
