Manual drama's in XE ESP 351
I've got an xe esp which was originally a 6. When the 351 conversion was done (back in 1985), they didnt bother to change the gearbox aswell.
Now the issue i have is that in 2nd & 3rd mainly, but in 1st & 2nd too, the gearbox is pretty bad and makes the car shudder badly.
This has been getting worse over the past 6 months, and its time to do something about it!
Ive been quoted $675 to have the 4spd single rail rebuilt, new bearings & seals (plus syncros etc if need be), but i really would like a Top Loader, as ive heard (and read) some very good things about them.
Im located in the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne, but work in the City..so anywhere either Northern or Central would suit me best.
Any recommendations or workshops to go to? And/Or what to do?
Thanks for your help/opinions,
