I'm changing my 5th gear syncro and I wanted to have a leg up on the replacement. Does anybody know where I can find some pictures or write up on the whole process. Also, any special tools that I might need to facilitate this job.
I bought a jspec tranny to replace my stock tranny with a bad synchro...do you guys think I should replace the synchro in the jspec tranny just to be safe...I mean I really don't have any way of knowing the condition of that transmission. Is the job easy enough where it would be worthwhile even though that 5th gear may be fine? I've never dealt with any type of transmission but am pretty mechanically enclined. I already have the synchro as well
I'm planning to do my tranny also, but was wondering if anyong could tell me what size the nut is that you have to take off on the gear cluster. Just want to make sure I have the socket to make my job a little easier.
1-1/4". Buy a new locknut. Also, take off the 5th/Rev clutch sleeve - if the teeth are worn and slightly sharp to the touch, it needs replaced. Fortunately you can buy the sleeve without buying the rest of the clutch assembly.
I wanted to thank everybody with they're input. I partly have the syncro changed. I found the rear bearings needing replacement. I ordered them today and hope to have them for tomorrow from Malloy Mazda (Ray Crowe has been great in helping get the parts that I need.)
