think me 'box is goosed

well lads, I'm puttin it into my mechanic friend for the once over but I fear I may need a new (secondhand) gearbox.

Any ideas on prices on a box from the scrappers or refurb?

in fairness shouldnt be much from a scrappers, there is a crowd here in Tallaght who specialise in gearboxes, they have a very goo rep if you want to ring them they might have some secondhand boxes.

Last gearbox I bought from a scrappy was €200, which I thought was a tad rich, but I couldn't bargain him down as it was a rare box and he knew I wouldn't source one easily.

good to know mate i'll have an update on mine tomorrow, mech hasnt had a chance to look at mine yet and if its still in the car it would be a bit of practice taking it out. I read a thread somwhere sayin its a pig of a job
To think I wanted to change the box a while back just to change the gearing

Good news, gearbox is not goosed. upper wishbone and a driveshaft later and she's good as new!

lighter in the wallet area, but glad its sorted. If I can find a 156 she'll be up for sale soon
