    okay guys, so my timing belt came off and broke the came gear off, bending valves and breaking my intake cam. i got a new ones and then while driving it home i loose 3rd and 4th gear! what should i do about the transmission? i was thinking about having shepard racing do my transmission but thats pretty damn exspensive, not to mention a hassle! You have to wait for them to send you a box for 125 bucks then you send them your tranny and they rebuild it for like 945, then you have to pay another 95 for them to ship it back.. i was wondering if there is a performance transmission that you can buy without sending yours in? im really getting tired of this car, i just bought it and dont even have it registered yet. :banghead:

    EDIT: i was thinking about rebuilding it my self also. around how much would that cost?

    Your best bet would to call UPS or Fedex and get quotes directly.

    Take it to the fed ex or ups, and shipping from your destination, we cant tell you that.

    if you can get out here to jersey dogbox is definitely the way to go.i had my tranny done as well as many friends and never a complaint.they call their trannies bullet proof for a reason.they are way cheaper than shep,and much better quality,and warranty.i have a friend with a shep trans and after its second season it needed to be redone again...go with dogbox and you wont be dissapointed......good luck

    only problem with that is i probally cant ship it and have it there by christmas. and also if its just a broken fork that would save me like 400 bucks because i could do it myself. i dont really plan on makin crazy power right now and kinda am tight on money untill the end of the year

    So crack it open and check the fork. :thumb: It could very well be the fork.

    okay kinda off topic question kinda not. where is the dang shift linkage on a 1g? theres the 2 cables for forwards back left right where is the linkage? or is that the linkage?

    and could not having 3rd nad 4th gear be caused by the linkage/ cables

    There are cables that run from your shifter, through the firewall and to the top of the trans. You could have just bent your cable from shifting too hard. It happened to me in my 1g (ebay short throw) and i was stuck in 2nd gear. Possibly broke the shifting arms there too? I would say to just find a junk yard and get a trans for less than $100 and do the work yourself. Probably best bet considering you havent even insured the car yet. The engine might blow tomorrow but hey atleast you spent $100 bucks for nothing rather than $600.

Well atleast where im at you have to. and the car right now is sittin in my back yard with the cover on it ill be movin it tothe garage soon, so then i can take a better look at the cables. i hope its just the cables and need adjusted .
