My alfa gtv v6 project
Hi guys I get my ph2 gtv v6 project very soon and it needs a fair few jobs. Most jobs are straight forward like exhaust, maf, rear suspension but the issue I'm most concerned about is the gearbox.
All the gears work except reverse gear? The rods look good when I viewed the car so bought the car thinking the gearbox is knackard and will probably need replacing. Anyway I had a fiddle with the gear stick and took the cover off and notice a bit of the white surround was broke. I tried a little force and the bit attatch to the stick come away ooppps!!
Could it be a simple as a broke surround? Is there a way I can test the reverse gear on the gearbox. I know with the twin spark I could remove the rods and select gears with the little leaver on the box, can you do this on the v6?
Also what does the white plastic surround actually do?
