Hello guys! I have a 1997 gsx. I attached a picture of my 5th gear and 5th intermediate gear. As you can see they are slightly damaged. Can this be fixed? What are my options here? Thank you!

Replace the gears with what? They are discontinued and finding these transmissions are quite hard. Yes I do know what caused it. This transmission was from a donor car and they literally beat this thing. The intermediate gear was torn up, center differential was blown, and a bunch of debris in the transmission. I tore it down, replaced everything but 5th gear. I can not find replacement parts.

Still no luck on the search. Can't come up with anything. Anyone else with some ideas?

You have a picture of the other side of the chipped portion of 5th? If it’s as minimal as it is in the 1st pic I’d just clean up up and use it. Theres a constant mesh with helical gears so with your chip I don’t think it’d be anything detrimental to function. You can see the contact pattern where it’s shiny vs dull. But I can only see the one side of it from the pic, I could be wrong though- maybe the experts could chime in.
Either way I’d hold off overseas parts, there’s quite a few guys here I’m sure will have it for yah, they probably just haven’t seen this thread.

If you wanted to skip ahead- you could use a paint marker to see if/how much the damaged area protrudes into the contact area. You’ll know right away if it is worth using or not.
