Non replaceable list isn't that long. Pins, end nuts seals.Resting hand on shifter, check. Clutch drag due to pedal slop, check. Not necessarily the greatest shifting skills in the world, check. Excessive downshifting to engine brake, check.
Yeah, between the pedal slop and my shifting, I'm pretty sure I know what caused this (and what needs to be done to prevent it recurring in the future). But that's all past and at this point there's nothing to do buy open is up and see what's going on, and do whatever has to be done.
By "non replaceable parts" I assume you meant all parts that are supposed to be replaced when you take the trans apart, like springs, detent balls, pins, etc., right? I already have new seals, all OEM, except the input shaft seal, which I need to order, also OEM.
Aren't the cone bearings usually destroyed when you take the stack apart, and so have to be replaced as well? What about the needle bearings and their sleeves?
And why would I want to put in a double synchro on the 2nd? Isn't that more for higher HP setups and for folks who race?
Cone bearings are not destroyed if all you're doing is taking apart the stacks. You can remove the bearing and gears all at once. Pay attention on the input. You
. must remove the 5th gear needle sleeve first. There is a snap ring under it then you can remove 3/4 assembly.
