I posted this message last week and can't beleive that no one can help me, c'mon guys!

The 5-speed in my '82 N/A (180 thou miles) may have seen better days. I seem to catch teeth up or down

(at high revs) in second, and shifting up to third (high revs also). I think the syncros are going south. It

has the stock shifter in it, and I plan to replace it with the short throw version. I have done american three

and four speeds in the past (like 10 plus years ago), and don't know if I will do the job myself or just pull it

out and have the tranny done by someone else. Does anyone know a good tranny man in the D/FW

area? Given my experience am I going to run into any major snags if I do it myself.

Thanx all,

Ken

I am getting ready to do a 83 5 speed rebuild also. From what I know it is supposed to be really easy. Also, the rebuild kit I found was $120, not very expensive, at least compared to what I thought it would cost. Sorry I can not give you answers from experience, but from what I have heard...
Good Luck,
Joshua L.

Ken ,
Talk to Corey at Standard Transmission & Gear in Fort Worth. (817) 625-7109. They are standard transmission rebuild specialist. He told me he could rebuild a Z 5-spd for $125 plus parts.
