How'd your 5th and reverse pins look? Either one of them visibly deformed like one of mine? At the time I had wished I had bought new ones. Next time (at clutch replacement).

Yes, the plastic...

I guess I was wrong about feeling a difference. I haven't driven the car much, since I'm in the middle of a multi-day detailing. However, on Monday when I pulled the car back in the garage, it was...

I honestly don't remember. I bought the slide hammer and two of the drifts so long ago that Randy had been using the slide hammer for other things for a while. :) I think the set of three drifts...

They're in the repair instructions. You don't need 23 0 170 or 00 1 450. For both repairs, you need 23 0 490 (the slide hammer). For the catch pins you need drift 23 3 110 and 23 2 360. For the...

Not the same as the 5th and reverse issue, see the service bulletins. Basically each of the three from-the-top pins can be in one of three detents on the top of the forks. If a pin gets stuck in...

Not that I can tell, but I didn't expect any difference in feel and I've only driven it home from Toledo. Might be a wee bit easier going from 4th to 5th.

The problems I've had engaging 1st and...

Bummer. Hopefully I won't be replacing the bushings annually. Were the bushings installed correctly? It looks to me like it's pretty important that they're oriented correctly (split should be to...

Yes, I'm relieved since we're headed south and it gave me trouble last year when it got hot. Having to leave stoplights in 3rd gear takes a lot of the fun out of driving this car. :)

reverse and 5th gear locking pins

I didn't take as many pictures here. This one shows the locking pin for reverse already done (blue cap at top center). It's essentially the same deal as the shift catch pins except there's an...
