Hi all,

Any thoughts on the best place to send a 13/60 gearbox for reconditioning?

I did find a place called Klassik Transmissions on the internet & they seemed ok when I rang, but any recommendations welcome.

Cheers,
Andy.

Swift reply from Mike Papworth....unfortunately he is very busy & booked up just now; & can also only offer a dearer, 4-synchro, upgrade currently.
Too much for my budget so i'll give Klassik Transmissions the job & report back on how it goes!

Hi,
Mike Papworth did my TR box thru a third party.
Check what he actually replaces, what he replaces, what he guarantees & for how long.

The other options are expensive and could be from same supplier. I will not be using M.P. in the future.
When the noise in neutral and first increases from the rumble that has been present for the last two years, I will decide what to do. Maybe six speed!  .

Cheers,
Iain.

why not try it yer self
plenty on eer that have done it with v v little knowledge
folk on here will elp oot if stuck

Word of cautionee, ye can get 20 syncros, and maybe lucky t,get a set that actually grip
OE type are best,
BUTT, if yer actual gear cone is worn doon, then its near an impossarble

they are quite east t,wuk on, try it

M


One does not have to know how a thing works, to know that it is not working right

Ye div,nt efta no ooa thing wuks, t,no its nut wuk,n reet.

I've got a spare 3 syncro box from a Mk3 spit available which came as a job lot with a very rotten car, but all the mechanicals had been overhauled by an engineer. It's still bubble wrapped and available from Rotherham area. No guarantees (as I've never used it) but it looks and feels ok. PM me if you want it.

Rallyspit...PM sent.  

Pete L - that Fitchets price is out of my budget I'm afraid!  

My gearbox seems very rattly...I get a constant rattle whilst driving but very noticeable when I come off the throttle whilst in gear.
Sounds rather as if the handbrake cable is rattling on the propshaft but I've the had car up on a lift & no rattles anywhere!
The gear change is very sloppy & the "gate" seems very loose.

I have a spare untested Spitfire 1300 gearbox which I was thinking to send off for a recon........

Probably just needs the remote control shifter rebushing.  1 hour and a £15 kit'll see that sorted.
