Ouch! New gearbox needed.
Driving along the M25 last week and 5th gear just disappeared. Thought it might be the nut that holds 5th gear in place had come loose and took it to Rusper Alfa trying to stay optimistic. Just got the call from the garage. 5th gear knackered. Loads of play in the auxiliary and main shafts. Plus a little oil feed at the rear of the box just isn't there. Sounds like it's been apart before and not put back together properly. Preparing myself for open wallet surgery. They may have a recon box lying around or they may have to source one. Does anyone know how much recon 5 speed JTS boxes are? Seen ones on EBay from Denmark for £1k but assume that is just someone trying it on. Hoping for something around the £200 mark. Am I being too optimistic? Whoever buys this car after me will be getting a bargain. It's like Trigger's broom!
