I remember when i got 6 new synchros fitted to mine, i gave it to a gearbox specialist because the garage i worked in had a press which could barely fit a wheel bearing :lol:

they had to stick the shaft in the freezer and then take it out and heat the gear! Had to do that to all 6 gears and they said they nearly picked up the phone to tell me it couldn't be done lol

Ah dont be saying it cant be done Dave...! :doh::lol:

I will get it fixed one way or another, otherwise car will be getting broke!

Heres a picture of an output shaft with no gears, so you can see what Im on about, the splines are just for the syncro hub, the 4 fixed gears are pressed / sweated on !
