    I am picking up my third transaxle tomorrow. I made it home from KCW this summer on that noisy new tranny. Made it 10,000 miles. Main input shaft bearing failed and I believe ring and pinion. At any rate , needed a complete rebuild. Put in my spare, which was also new and couldnโ€™t stay in 4th at all. Changed all the bushings, did all the stuff. Apparently the new brass synchros for 4th gear are just a snipple too tight. Drove it to see if I could force some wear but nope. Held it in gear for 1000 miles (bungie wasnโ€™t strong enough) and pulled it out yesterday. Taking it tomorrow to โ€œmy guyโ€. Feel like a bird with a clipped wing. The upside is I replaced my spring plate bushings this time and boy did they need it. ย I wish I was closer and could help you John.

    I talked to Eddie today about these 4th year issues. ย He thinks maybe we arenโ€™t turning enough rpmโ€™s with these big motors and 3.88 r/p set ups and big ol tires too.. ย he said 4 gear is the farthest from the oil.. ย and needs rpm to sling oil up there?????

    Eddie’s right on the money. Especially when towing. I learned that the hard way with Subie power. I could climb most highway situations in fourth, but it heated up fourth gear fast. After two fourth gear failures, I got wise and climbed everything in third. On that trip back from steamboat with the headwinds, I was in third for over 70 miles doing 60mph.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Hmm that *is* ย interesting. Iโ€™ll talk to my guy tomorrow and hear his thoughts. We did do a comparison between a NOS and a new synchro gear and the new one definitely sat further away than the original one, teeth barely touched. Iโ€™ll take pictures. Transmission stuff bums me out, but mainly because Iโ€™m on the ground doing it.
