2nd Gear Synchro

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

This is a specific post about a synchro problem on the esprit i think to buy this week.

See for présentation

The problem on the car is gear changing from 3rd to 2nd, it needs double clutching.

It seems expansive to rebuild a gearbox in France, but it is possible to find some SM gearbox.

How is the compatibility between the two gearboxes ?

Is it fully compatible, is it a specific SM model of gearbox ?

Also, could you confirm if it is the exact sames gearbox between LHD and RHD ?

Thanks !

Pascal

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

Buying an unknown 2nd hand gearbox could work out just as expensive.

Parts are available from the UK or Harry Martens @dsvitesse1  http://www.ds-vitesse.com.  I would investigate fixing it first. :)


It's getting there......

Hi Tim,

I agree, this can work...or just be a waste of money :)

Thanks for the address, it seems a good one !
