I have just taken the Gearbox off and found the problem... I don't think it should do that!

Having got to this stage I think I'll get a reconditioned unit ...

Shame it was not an easy fix, but all the fun of being a car owner
If you want a home for the old box I might be able to squeeze it in for a rebuild some time. :D

BGH are good with type9 boxes, plenty of people on here have had them, you can chose the ratio, if you want a long first etc. They will also sell you a service kit with new synchro's etc

It was a learning exercise! The box was old and gear selection was sometimes "interesting" , so it was probably time to upgrade anyway. I need to get a replacement asap... before a lose the bits scattered about my garage and forget completely how it goes back together!

Thanks Colin, I'll give them a call. ... certainly be interested in the long first gear.

Its basically the old housing with virtually all new in internals!, they were pretty shagged (...Trigger''s broom comes to mind!). I got it done by Paul at First Motion Transmissions in Baldock , after a friend in Baldock recommended him. can't start it for a couple of weeks due to work and the DTM at Brands ... but she will live again!
