Gear change

Post by Sunfly » Fri Mar 15, 2024 10:35 pm

The Flying machine is in first class running order apart from one thing! Stiff gear changing - and occasionally gear crunching! My reccolection of my 16v was that you could change gear with the lightest push on the gearstick but with the FM its a very firm tug. Oil has been renewed and linkage has been lubricated so I guess its the synchro as the clutch is also new and working ok. Its spoiling the drive for me, so though its quiet running, I think it will have to have the synchro serviced.

I just wondered if anyone can confirm that a box in good order is smooth and light to change gear and that youd agree I've got worn synchro rings (all gears but 1 & 2 are worst. Any idea of cost to get it sorted as my days of crawling under acar are happily over.
