ALFA 156 with new gearbox connection issues
After the 01 selespeed being off the road for some 16 months I sourced a second hand gearbox as the other one had a stuffed synchro and disintegrated thrust bearing.
I fitted a new clutch kit whilst I was at it obviously.
Anyway after much swearing the gearbox is in and I started the car in neutral first up the other day and it ran nicely.
I thought before I went any further I would check the clutch adjustment being 28mm or whatever and went to connect to the car via fiatecuscan 3.0.3.
The engine connects ok and I can see alll the relevant data. but not the selespeed gearbox which suggests to me the gearbox was not out of a 156 as I thought but the gearbox presented exactly the same physically.
Now I have not adjusted anything but now find the gearbox although reading N on the speedo is actually in gear as the car moves forward on the crank.
Can anyone suggest anything here as again with most things to do with this alfa I have come to another brick wall.
