Re: Problem shifting gears
Yoinks! Gearboxes are a bugger because the parts seem to cost £40 each and you only need 4 or 5 plus a bit of labour before the cost racks up.
Yours does sound like the synchro' but if the menders find other bits worn out, then it may quickly get to the point where a recon'd 'box is the more cost-effective solution.
Alternatively, you may be able to find a second-hand 'box from a breaker (the 1.8 is fairly common and possibly other Fiat/Alfas may use the same 'box) but obviously that would be an unknown quantity.
No bullets for Chaingun..
