Gearbox work - 3rd Gear synchro
I'm having some problems at the moment with my 147 (1.6), it's stiff going from 2nd to 3rd at high revs. I'm guessing it's a worn synchro ring, and it'll have to be changed soon enough.
I'm intending to do the work myself. I'd be handy enough with a set of spanners, even if I'm not the brightest tool in the box
, but I'm wondering if anybody has any advice or opinions on the work? Also what kind of parts cost would i be looking at?
I have 'obtained' the alfa service manual cd, so have the official gearbox strip instructions, but I'm mostly looking for advice from anybody who's done it before?
