I started with the transmission. It came out of a 78 911SC, and I had it sitting for the last 8 years or so.



First I cleaned it up a bit from outside. This was good enough to start with disassembling.



Here are some pictures as it comes apart.



I clean up the pieces as I go.











Got the casing cleaned up



And here the 2 shafts out.







R/P looks good.



Got it all disassembled for inspection.







Next: check all parts for wear and make the list. I decided to replace all bearings, and I know for sure the first gear synchro ring must be bad.

More to come.

Cheers
Engelbert

Your taste in parts trays is impeccable, of course.

I thought the same thing until Hoophead (thanks, buddy) walked me through a rebuild. The second time a year later I understood better but it's really very straightforward, and makes driving a manual more fun now that I realize what is happening.
