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.

DVD is on its way. Thanks for the referral, fellas.

1st is by far the worst and most frequent to die. Dont down shift into first. 2nd is dead about 70% of the time.

10 labor units to go through it? I am under charging at 7 labor units to include setting and checking the ring and pinon depth, backlash, preload, etc. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
