Hello Again All Teeners,

After 100 little projects I have the silver bullet (silver '74 2.0) back on the road, first time it has been registered since 1984.

Runs great, needs paint and perhaps a tranny freshening??????

I replaced all of the guide nylon bushings and re-centered the stick shift.

However, when down-shifting 3rd to 2nd is horrible, (GRIND!) better when I double shift.

First to second is ok, though at times if I am too aggressive it too will grind.

WHATS NEXT ON MY LIST????? remove the 1st and reverse section of the tranny? Complete rebuild?

Can hardly wait!

Many thanks for all of the great guidance over the years.

2nd is the most shifted and always the first to wear out in any car.

Parts are replaced after inspection. You will soon find that just 1 Porsche bearing is the cost of any other brands whole bearing kit....

There are ways to cheat the wallet, like swapping the infrequently used 5th gear parts to 2nd.

The DrEvil trans rebuild DVD is a great way to see what you are getting into and procedures.
