Hello everyone!
It’s been a while since I been here. Reluctantly sold my R90/6 but am looking to buy a 1992 RT. Wondering if there are any issues with this particular year I should know about? It has 60000 miles on the odometer. Thanks in advance for your responses! Mcgee

The only issue I'd want to

The only issue I'd want to know about is the transmission circlip. The 1992 year is within the '85-95 range where a circlip was removed from one of the shafts in the transmission. It's possible that the bearing can walk off the shaft creating problems within the transmission.

You should monitor the deposits on the transmission drain plug. When the parts get to be more than just normal fuzz, then you have a pending problem and the transmission needs to be overhauled.

Thank you for the very complete story of the circlip! I will inquire about this for sure! With 60000 miles, hope it has been installed!
