Sometimes it's the little things that get you! Important things to note here...  

  • Every rebuild kit is not created equal, make sure you are getting all of the seals and bearings to do the job right the first time.
  • If you experience problems shifting smoothly from one gear to another while the drivetrain is in motion, the synchronizer rings may be worn out. These are not usually sold as a part of a rebuild kit. You may have to ask your distributor for them separately.
  • And last but not least, everyone is not mechanically inclined. So if you think you may need help with this, get help first. Nobody likes having to fish through a box of transmission parts from an unfinished job.
