Unfortunately not!. This is my first attempt in rebuilding a tranny. I am only armed with only the manuals from the DSM cd. I have intermediate knowledge and experience with rebuilding stock heads, blocks, changing water pumps, belts, etc. There is a lot to be learnt from manuals. :P
Dont let me mislead you,its not that i am a stingy bast**d. I am NOT trying to save a penny by avoiding having the tranny rebuilt professionally. It is just that there isnt anyone competent here (in my current location,) who can. I have sent the tranny to 2 DSM specialist (or so they claim) and they both are puzzled. In total, the tranny has been pulled out and disassembled 5 TIMES! .
Labor cost alone is equivalent to the cost of the gearbox!
Their advice, is to get a new tranny from the junkyard. My budget is not too happy with their recommendations.
What I meant by that both sleeves and hubs have the same used signs, is that I actually took apart my friends W5M33 gearbox (which shifts perfectly well) to compare it with my tranny internals. I checked the synchronizer ring, hub, clutch gears, but not the forks attached to the shift rails.
Last week I reassembled and installed my friends tranny back into his motor. Now I don’t have an identical shift rail –fork for comparison. I just referred to the manual and it does not tell how to identify a fork which is out of spec. If you wouldn’t mind, how do I tell if the fork is good?
I appreacite any help/tips/suggestions i can get.
