Gear Box Rebuilt

Just a very quick post to say that the gear box has been rebuilt a few days ago with a new third gear and the separate SIII 2nd and 3rd gear bushes, along with the new shims and circlips required.  I just need better weather to refit it – it’s a bit wet around here at the moment!

The transmission will be rebuilt to get the car back into service and I’ll have to use it for work for the following week before I get a chance to fit 4.71:1 diffs in the new axles.  I have located a front axle from a Series vehicle, and still have the 109 Salisbury diff in my garage that had been kept for this eventuality.  I’ll just have to drive gently for that week and avoid using the overdrive unless in 4th to avoid straining the lower gears.
