    Question about solder method to determine proper shim thicknesses (updated with numbers doing it the right way)

    So I got my stacks reassembled with new parts and did the solder method yesterday, but many of the measured values seemed way off. Then I realized that I might have done it wrong.What I did was first install all new or removed bottom (closest to clutch/engine/bellhousing) races into the case...

    Leak around oil pan, likely sources?

    There's an oil (or possibly steering fluid) leak around the oil pan near the driver's side area. I'm not sure if it's the pan seal, oil cooler, pump or something else. I cleaned everything earlier this year and the car only has a few hundred miles on it since, so it's a fair-sized leak that I...

    1G Finally took transmission apart, advice needed on which parts need replacement. (More photos!)

    So I finally got around to dropping the trans on my '92 Talon TSi AWD and took it apart. To my novice eyes it looks to be in good condition, no broken gears, forks or pieces of metal or major shavings, maybe a few tiny case slivers that might have been caused by taking it apart. It needs a good...

    1G Several quick questions before attempting AWD manual trans rebuild

    As many here know I've been restoring my sub-78k miles manual trans '92 Talon TSi AWD for some time now, and it's finally time to fix the trans, the main issue being its popping out of 1st gear most of the time. I replaced the clutch last year, with a SBC Stage 2 DD kit, with the intention of...

    1G 1g vs 2g door handles

    I recently broke off my driver side door handle on my 1g. And after a lot of searching online I realised that there are very few driver side 1g door handles available to me, but there are lots for 2gs. Which look fairly similar, so would a 2g door handle fit in a 1g , and also would those really...

    Transmission won't go into gear, several possible reasons, need advice

    Resolved Is my new clutch disc mis-aligned?

    I took some photos of my installed new SBC Stage 2 DD pressure plate and clutch, and it looks like the disc might be out radial alignment. Thing is that I was able to reinstall the trans, which you'd think would be impossible as it would put the dowel pins and bolt holes out of alignment too. Is...

    Decent cheap gear oil for short-term use?

    I was going to take apart the transmission on my '92 Talon TSi AWD to fix an issue where it pops out of 1st gear, but for a number of reasons I have to put that off for a while, from a few weeks to several months, next spring at the latest. Meanwhile I drained its oil, along with the t-case oil...

    1G Restoring front end suspension: Which parts to replace?

    I'm replacing the clutch and fixing transmission issues on my '92 Talon TSi AWD, which requires detaching or removing some front end suspension parts, e.g. control arms, CV axles, etc. I figured I might as well remove everything, given how dirty and rusty they are and it's so much easier to...
