Done. Shouldn't take much more and it won't be necessary.

Hi Hugh, I hope you get an answer to your question. I have never pulled a gearbox apart before, but I might be pulling one apart later this year to have a look.

Like your website, and welcome along.

transmission rebuild is straightforward as long as you have tools and parts, knowledge is in the service manual :P
We here in Europe have problems with parts at reasonable prices as some of them we can get only through Nissan.
now way to get full rebuild kit here

Manual I have, tools, mostly, parts I can get. Patience not so much, and I'm normally a close enough is good enough sort of mechanic. I often end up having to do things twice because of that. :(

Pulling a gearbox apart twice is not something I'm keen to do :)

But I'm enjoying watching you do it - keep it up.

finally I got my box assembled, and shortly I'll be putting it in to the car.
I managed to get new synchro rings form USA - it took about 3 weeks to get them.
I decided to not bother abut that sub gear part (11) as it seems form me that it's working more as a spacer rather then really working part, so I get rid of spring (18) as it is loose without (11).

teeth are broken and that's the place where front shaft should meet with this sub gear thing - so it was probably broken some time before I got there

Updates ?

How did you damage the gear ?

I guess it's due to excessive play on inputshaft bearing.
