I think that the gearboxes are carried over with the engine, but as the 33 gearboxes are prone to problems, it might be better to have yours overhauled.

How about the other way around, fitting a 146 gearbox into the 33 ? My 33 gearbox kicks out the 3rd gear when the engine is on compression (not accelerating) plus the usual 2nd gear syncros already gone. My 146 1.6 TS's gearbox is so much smoother and was wondering if I could get another for the 33. Thanks.

I doubt the T/S gearbox will fit the Boxer engine. Boxer engine is in-line while the TS donkey is transverse mounted.

If you find a new box, I'd still get the 2nd gear synchro' changed before you fit it. It's a bit feeble (having been designed when the engine was just a 60bhp 1.3 for the Alfasud).
