244 Whacking sound on engine braking 200 1989

Good day!

Sorry for the delay, I've been busy with paperwork with my school starting soon and working.

It turns out that the sound was the transmission. I pulled the whole thing out and looked in the cover, and sure enough first gear was missing three teeth that made a whack/thunk sound once per revolution. Reverse was also missing half a tooth.

I've been calling up junkyards to find another transmission, and haven't had much luck. The lynnwood Pick-n-Pull has a rather odd specimen:



The website lists it as both a manual and automatic. As far as I can tell, the VIN number lists it as having an M58 five speed. To my knowledge the 50 series was never used for the 200 series. Do any of you know if this is the case?

Also, if anyone is selling an M47 in the Puget Sound region, let me know.
