    Default R8/10 Big box, again, synchos.

    I still haven't assembled my gearbox (330 case with R16TS internals) but before I do there has been talk of replacing synchro parts. As I'm about to order from Mecaparts do they stock the required parts and are said parts replaceable without completely dismantling the secondary shaft. I don't have access to the required tools to dismantle the shaft, you need an oven to put it back together.

    Still have to source U-joints as well, or have some modified.

    Beyond my capability, that's for sure. I think it has to come apart properly - at least I do know enough to recommend changing the energiser springs inside the synchro units as well. Others know more...
