MT Help

Im getting a steal on a 240sx, problem is the owner says he screwed up the tranny. he says "it cranks fine, but when you let up on the clutch it stalls" i know tranny work is expensive, and i could just buy a new one for <250, so is it possible to fix this by simply swapping trannys? Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially as ive never messed with a tranny

Apparently he was sliding around in some mud in his front yard and i imagine it just cut out. I wouldnt think it would be an engine problem as it will idle just fine with the clutch depressed, but as soon as you let it up it stalls. This is all i know about the scenario, i havent tried cranking it myself as the differential is already disconnected from the tranny. i was just hopeing id be able to simply replace the tranny, sounds like the clutch is ok?
