id be looking for spare boxes boys
Ea gearboxes are known not to be the best
They have a 4bolt flywheel compared to the 6 bolts on later models and you will probably have synchro probs soon

Nothing wrong with ea boxes apart from being a little older, which means more wear on them i guess.

EA boxes have a 3 bolt flywheel and slightly smaller clutch, but the later model 6 bolt flywheel and bigger clutch is a straight swap over which is what i did the other week.

And yes its the best mod you can do..... now fit some 3.7 diff gears in :twisted:

haha well yeh i bloody hope it beats 17 :|
i had a 6 bolt flywheel too, and previous owner of the bunky said it had a heavyduty(maybe s**t) clutch not so long ago, i beleive him about the "not so long ago" as it had loads of meat on the clutch plate AFTER i thrashed it to the city from kwinana haha.
syncros are probably going. i need to adjust the cable a bit better.. pedals too high but thers still bulk travel before the friction point..
after i save a bit of cash i might invest in gettin a later model box just for peace of mind and probly a bit more poke. maybe a 6button clutch or something :)

il be going down next wednesday to find out! (ill be reading all the tips too :P)
same night goin up against a mate in an auto vt bombadore.. exagerators and sports zorst and lowered suspension..

oh ill be there lancey!
with enough notice i always wanna help :D
none of my mates trust me to do cashys for them :evil: asses
