Re: Mystery bearing?!?
I'm not real familiar with the 6 speed either, but going off of other vehicles that I've had that were manuals, that's what it sounds like it could be. If the bearing didn't just fail, but completely broke apart it could have sent the balls out with a bit of force and maybe out the boot.
Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...
