Just wondering...how good are you with mechanical repairs? I've seen plenty of people pull things apart and stuff up the reassembly. :roll:

I think you need a press to remove one of the input/output bearings. If you replace the synchros, you might as well do all the bearings while it's apart. Have you allowed for chipped/worn gears & a worn input shaft? With shims, you need to get the clearances right. Have you got tools to check the tolerances?

I'm a diy selfy so don't mind getting tools and taking my time reading a manual and having a crack.

Ok. I was thinking of doing the same thing instead of relying on transmission specialists. Maybe you can do a tech document on rebuilding it.
