    This sounds like it needs to go in the trials and tribulations section.

    Here is one way to use this machine to your advantage. If is free(ish), take it home and take it apart. Everything you take off figure out what it does and how. Put it back on a couple of times to see how it reassembles. Take pictures. Get a manual. Use it as experience so the next time your buddy tells you the transmission is gone at least you will have some idea that he means a gear is broken.
    If you find something that is obviously broken find out how much a replacement is. When you get to the bottom of the engine/transmission then attempt a rebuild using the pics/manual/reassembly that you have already done. If the things you found wrong are too expensive...part it out.
