Is your tranny feeling like this?
Attached Image

Send it to me and I will make it feel and perform like this!
Attached Image

If your tranny is feeling its age, grinding, and popping out of gear I have the solution for you! If you have checked the other, outside of the tranny causes for these symptoms and found them to be ok then your tranny may be in need of a rebuild.

Some outside of the tranny causes for some of your shifting woes:

-Shifter bushings along the shift rod
-Cone set screws
-Tranny cable adjustment, shifter adjustment
-Clutch, TO bearing, pressure plate
-Engine and tranny mounts

So, you have checked all of the above and it is still not working as it should. What do you do!?

Send it to me!

Options:

1. Send the whole thing to me for a full rebuild and reseal - $650 labor (Includes resetting of ring and pinion) + parts
-Shipping is about $100 coast to coast with FedEx Ground.
-Please clean the case! I do not have a tank for this. If you dont clean it, it wont come back clean as the time and labor to clean it by hand would make the rebuild way too expensive when there are cheaper ways to go about it. I am working on a solution, in my free time, which is woefully limited.

2. Send the gear stack to me for a full rebuild - $350 labor + parts
-Instructions for removal and install will follow
-Weight of stack and packing is 37lbs
- If I do a stack rebuild, you need to have the ring and pinion set up on your end or it will be off, and it can be significantly.

3. Want to convert to a side shift? PM me.

I am interested in getting your car shifting correctly and lasting a long time while providing you with the greatest value and service. If you have questions I would be happy to help you. If you want to take pics of your gear stack and get an opinion fell free to contact me. Do you want to bring it by and have me take it apart to diagnose it? I will gladly do this, and for free. I will diagnose any tranny for no charge.

I have a great stock of excellent used internal parts for much less than new with no loss in performance if you are interested. I have many different gear sets. I highly recommend all new main bearings; input shaft (x2), pinion shaft (x2) and differential (x2). I have these for $700 a set (Retail $1250). I also have new 1/R sliders for $325 (retail $500). These prices are as of 12/26/15 and can change based on my cost. I DO NOT SELL DIRECT. I have no interest in keeping a stock of new parts on hand as it ties up my limited funds. All new parts are only available for builds that I am doing.


For shipping instructions, PM me.


Thats all! any questions feel free to PM me (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wavey.gif)

DISCLAIMER: This business is a side venture and at times builds can take a while as life, day job, etc suck time. You can have economy or expediency, choose one. I would be remiss if I did not state this up front so you could fully consider having me do your build. Usual time is 2-4 wks. Also, it is first come, first served. I do not take reservations as it makes the relationship weird when scheduled time is missed and deposits forfeited. The sooner you get it to me, the sooner it gets done. I tend to have a que of 3 deep or less.

I also have a DVD that goes over the basics of a rebuild other than R/P setting (takes longer than the rest of the build and requires parts and special, expensive tools). Over 200 sold!

Here is also a link to an excellent thread by DNHunt on how to rebuild the tranny if you want a basic overview http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?sho...=40904&st=0

How to remove the stack from you tranny out of the car:

Step 1. Remove the shift console and the reverse switch with its pin
Attached Image
Attached Image

Step 2. Remove tail cone. Be ready for the reverse gear and its little bearings to fall out. You should now be looking at the business end of the tranny gear stack.

Step 3. Select 5th gear by taking a socket extension and pushing in the 4th/5th shift rod. Its ok to use a hammer, just dont beat the hell out of it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

(4th and 5th Shift rod in neutral)

(5th gear selected)

You can now remove your gear stack by lifting at the intermediate plate.

***NOTE***
When you remove the intermediate plate you will have some gaskets between it and the case. These are of a particular thickness and need to be replaced with the same to keep the pinion shaft depth the same. Use a micrometer to measure the thickness of these (usually more than one) and keep that number handy. When you reinstall you need to measure the gaskets that come with the new kit and replace with ones that are of the same thickness.


Also, here is a link to Red-beards article on how to fix 1st with the tranny in the car. It can be used as a guide to how to remove the stack in the car.

So, now you have recieved your rebuilt gear stack and you are very happy (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) How do you reinstall it?

Like so:

Step 1. Select 5th gear on your gear stack.
Attached Image

Step 2. Place the correct thickness of gaskets on the tranny case rear.

Step 3. Place the case on blocks leaving extra room under the center for the drive shaft as it sticks out farther than the bell housing. Allign the stack, intermediate plate and drive shaft in the case and lower into position. Be careful of the output seal for the drive shaft. Make sure the drive shaft moves through it with out catching the lip and causing the spring inside it to come out.
Attached Image

Step 4. Once the stack is installed, reassemble the 1st/rev gear stuff (make sure the flat needle bearing is UNDER the gear on the intermediate plate side!). Now put the tail cone back on.

Step 5. It is now time to put the tranny back into the neutral. In the first pic you can see the shift rod notches are off center. Take a screwdriver and push the 5th/4th shift rod so it is centered. It should look like the second pic.

Step 6. Once in neutral, put the shift console back in. The shift console only gets the O-ring. The gasket that comes with the seal kit is for the plug of the tail shifter that goes there, not for the side shifter console so don't use it.

Step 7. Reinstall the reverse pin and switch.


Install the tranny and enjoy!

Hey man, let me try to save you some money. If you have a "CRACK" and now nothing goes then your box may be done for as you may have just put a bunch of metal pieces through your diff. It may be in you rbest interest both money and shipping wise to pull the stack out as per my instrucitons and look at the teeth on your pinion and your differential. If they are gauled you would do better to have me get you a core tranny down here and rebuild it. A core would only run you about $75 over what shipping yours to me would cost. I have shipping instructions in teh first post. Coast to coast on GreyHound is about $70 so you should be a littl eless since you are closer. If you want to talk in more detail about this, feel free to PM or email me.

Dear Dr. evil,

I have a '74 914. It has a 2.0L motor and the trans keeps popping out of 2nd gear. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) I followed all your previous advice of things to try before calling you. I am desperate in need if a gear fix. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smash.gif) Can you help me? I'm located in the panhandle of WV and can deliver the unit personally.

Steve,
Yup, I can help you. The only thing is that I am booked until the end of the month. If you want to schedule a time in Sept to get this done then there will be no problem and a quick turn around.
Thanks for reading the whole post above and trying all the things I listed. I constantly have to refer people back to it and it takes time to do such. Youare already a step ahead (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumb3d.gif)

Dear Doctor,

I have a souped-up 3.0 SC engine mated to a side-shifter 901 with a ZF LSD. Now for the bad news:
- 2nd and 3rd grind if shifting occurs anywhere near top RPM's; oh, if I wait > 2 seconds they don't, but by then I'm doing 3 Mph
- 1st and reverse grind when engaging from idle after holding the clutch down for < 3 seconds; this one I can live with, and provide FYI

I'm a complete mechanical ignoramus, with no hope for reformation any time soon. Can you help me? What happens if surgery reveals terminal condition in there? Can you source parts, etc.? $500 all going well, really?

Cheers,
J.
