I have no idea what transmissions fit, but I can tell you that some have a hydraulic clutch, and some are cable operated.

I also know that once you remove the transmission, it only costs about $50 and an hour or two to replace a couple bad bearings. Pretty sure it takes more time and money to find a replacement.

I'm just talking from my personal experience. I have to say, I was pretty stubborn about it too, because the last thing I wanted to do was put any time or money into such a shitbox. By the time it was totally undriveable, and I couldn't find a replacement on the entire internet, I ended up having to JB weld one of the new bearings into the case because it had spun so badly.
Pretty aide mine will be like that. 4th gear won't engage it just sounds like a bearing is hauling ass and winding up did you have to split the trans or was yours an outer bearing

So, is this a 92 Colt like the one at the top of the screen, or a 93+ body style like you see here?? :

To fit a 3G CSM (89-92), Hydraulic clutch transmissions from the 89-92 Dodge/Plymouth Colt 200/e/GT non turbo, Eagle Summit (non-van style), Mitsubishi Mirage 200/e/GT non turbo are a best fit, especially if there are any issues with axle fitment. 93+ hydraulic clutch transmissions are supposed to be a direct fit for the 89-92 CSM.

If you have a 4 speed, I am not sure if that means the case and or axle fitment changed at all.
I'll leave for someone to post that information.

What we would need to know if the number codes you have stamped into the trans case. Likely the top of the case near the shift cable boots/holder, just below the head, and likely on the passenger side of the transmission poking out the outer trans cap in the wheel well; likely covered with a plastic fender guard if they are still there. I suspect you have the F4M21, but not 100%.
Im gonna try to find out which it is.
It's a 92 not like that. And its cable not hydro

I think you have to open the case to replace any of the bearings. If you need the service manual, I can probably find a link for you.

I would open it up, and clean everything and inspect it. Then only replace the parts you need. Use gray sealer to seal the case sections, and refill with GL-4 gear oil.
