BTW- sign up for this clinic and rebuild your transmission, or any transmission.

Having the Dr (a real Dr BTW) intelligently helping you rebuild and restore your own transmission, especially for conversion or racing spec, is an unbelievable deal, let alone a great experience.

Going and watching is like porn, it's interesting at first, but its a whole lot more fun actually doing it.

I rebuilt Dad's car's side shift... I didn't think I needed it but cracked it open anyway. It turned out I had a cracked main bearing that worked just fine after 88K miles, but was a ticking time bomb. Never raced - stock.

Look again, that’s 2 smaller gears at different angles... I thought I saw broken gears until I looked closer...

Bummer I can’t make that weekend, but I wish the best to everyone that makes it! Invaluable service to the he community, thanks Dr. E, and those to help bring it to CA!

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) I don't see anything wrong with the spider gears or the ring (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

I am a strong MAYBE!

I would love to bring my 17yr old son with me (his BDay is the 27th BTW), sounds like a good father/son outing.

I will report back when I FIRM-UP my schedule.

Thanks to all who are making this happen!

Hard to tell exactly in this pic, but it is a great start. The yellow arrow show the faces of the pinion that need to be wiped clean and inspected. You are looking for any pock marks, galling, spalling (some fancy terms) where there is metal missing. Wear marks are not a big deal, missing metal is definitely a big deal. Many that have been an issue in the past were blatant (big metal pieces missing from face of pinion).

Orang arrow is your "spider gears" and that wear is normal. No chunks missing. The yellow arrows indicate the faces that need to be inspected. Similar to pinion, we are mainly looking for missing material.

Update:

Ill add this in the first post as well, but SMC is hooking it up!

They are looking into providing the acetone and rags for us, as well as donuts and coffee in the mornings. Aaron is working with SMC to see if they can have discounted parts available for everything outside the gearbox (since I will have all the internal parts covered), like clutch, CV, bushings, TOB, etc. I gave them a list. There is a restaurant next door that can cater, est is $10-13 a head at this time. Also, local Eagle Rock Brewery may be bringing beer. We will see what cost coverage on that is. And, SMC is looking into goody bags. There is also talk about around 20 parking spots in their lot held for AC Porsche only parking for a small show. Sounds like this will be quite the spectacle!

I just posted this over to the 912 forum, too. Not sure about sharing on Pelican due to using SMC facilities and advocating buying parts from them when possible. Feel free to spread the news far and wide. I really need to get to the 20 to make this not a loss.

I am open to it, if this one reaches capacity. If not, gonna be a loooong while as I will need to recover from the endeavor. I want to see the bay area again. Its been too long. The proposed clinics in the near future ( provided I can get time and child care) are Canada, Seattle, Nor Cal. I am open to others. If I strike out on my own to start a family practice clinic (working on it), I can make my own hours, but need the side income to cover the start up and low revenue over the first year or two. Using my mechanical skills to get the medical side up and running (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I can post on Pelican, so long as we keep it community focused rather than a vendor pitch I think that is OK.

The Samba might be a good spot too. I can reach out to some of the PCA sights as well.

I heard you mention gasket sets are getting hard to find. Will there be any on hand?

Sounds like SMC is going the extra mile for this! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I would love to do this, but am already down the NEXT weekend for my nephew's graduation. Since my transmission on my car is solid, I am probably going to hold out and pray that you make it up to No. Cal for a clinic. I guess I can be patient, but it's NOT one of my strong suits! LOL

I will have sets for every participant, no worries. I have enough in stock to cover the 7 listed currently.

Pulled the sidecover from my core box today. All dif gearing that I can see shows no signs of pitting, scrapes, gouges or uneven wear to my untrained eye. There was a lot of very fine junk on the drain plug magnet. I will try to get my other box out of storage this weekend to compare. I bought this core because the blue paint made me hope it had been rebuilt before and possibly have some new or upgraded parts

That ones toast. Dr. Evil and I may have some spares, but another box would be easier to start with.
