Where do i get the tools for gearbox overheaul from?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

m thinking of overheauling my eclat s1 5 speed lotus gesrbox. As i hv 3 failty ones.

one with jumping out second amd reverse gear

one with completely gone second gear and knocking input shaft bearing

one with gone 2nd/3rd synchronizer

all of them have play in outgoing shaft bearing

 

 

Which tools do i really need to overheaul?

where do i get the non standard tools from?

does anyone sell me tools?

which gearbox based on the symthoms would you overheaul?

what is also if not totally worn recommended to replace with new parts?

 

 

thank you for your recommendations

I would pull apart all three gearboxes inspect them and use the best parts to build a good one up.

Don't forget to count any shims used as they may be different between gearboxes.

Output shaft bearing should be a fairly standard size bearing to replace.

Good luck!

Thank you for your answer. But i read i need special tool in manual. But cant find any place where to get them. Is it possible with some tricks to dismantle. E.g. put whole thing in oven and then ice spay on bearings to pull out?,...
