I had measure the trans parts the last time I put it together and everything was fine. I suspect no changes except that tooth being punched off so I'm going to check both sets of gears/forks/dogs/drums. Hopefully I can just do a few gears swaps. If everything is within spec by a good margin I’m looking at sending the gears off to get shot-peened and ISF treated.Slowly working on a fix, wont really know what I can do until later this week when I start meticulously measuring all the parts. Worst case, I may buy a new 2nd gear input and output gear, get everything ISF treated and call it a day. Considering myself lucky too - I failed to realize in my reading that the piston rod bolts needed to be replaced because they stretch when torqued. Maybe that’s common sense for some of you old-timers but that was news to me.
Parts in/coming in
- New thermostat and head coolant gaskets
- all new bolts/nuts for the piston rods
- R&G exhaust sliders for the new can
- brand new, full EBC SRK clutch kit (friction plates, steel plates and heavy duty springs)
Hope to be on the right track soon - want this thing to be bullet proof. Only thing I have not done yet is a valve adjustment but I may wait till I’m out in Cali to start looking at that
It is a hell of a lot easier to do while the engine is already out of the frame!!!!!!!
At the very least you should get exact measurements and see where they are........... No idea why you wouldn't have done that when you were doing everything else <img src="http://zx6r.com/images/smilies/rock.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Eh?" class="inlineimg" />
