does it spin the wheels ?
if so the car is off the ground (ie no load) it will go into gear with no load on the wheels as the syncromesh will spin up and do its job this will allow the box to engage any gear but reverse with the engine running(there is no synchro on most reverse gears but not all)
does it disengage with the clutch?

you can drive a car with no clutch if you time the gearing right and take load off the drive train with the throttle its easy with practise.

Well I bought my eg5 a few months ago had it for 3 weeks and the bottom end went :( and I found another engine with 79,000miles was an automatic so its never seen a limiter and probably not been thrashed so should be a strong engine, and a week after getting the engine I got paid off so I have a lack of funds for the car but am just back in work now but I got a mate to do the work as a homer so far cheaper than a garage!, but if something needs replaced I've bought it so no half measures lol 8-|
