Is it only jumping out of 2nd by any chance?

You'll have something of a learning curve, but anything is doable
given time...

Better off with a recon.

For what it'll cost you in parts, shims, and time it isn't worth doing
yourself unless you're some sort of gearbox pervert.

I rebuilt mine, three weeks later 3rd gear lost 3 teeth.
Then I got a recon box, which whined badly so I took the LR to the place I
got the gbox from and said u do it it's your fault and they did :)

Did a 4 speed cortina gearbox strip & re-build as part of my C&G 381 course 20 years ago. It was very
hard, but very rewarding.

Mind you, we never used it in a car!!!

Re: SIII G/box rebuild !!!!

Thanks for the bad points but I like a challenge, I have never dealt with
g/boxes before and would like to see what I can make of it, so where is the
best place to get the bits? has anyone used Land Rover for the gears and
shims etc: what would the expected price be for parts not counting my time
( put it down to a steep learning curve )

Rich soon to be in to a SIII gearbox !!!!!
