thats the trouble with 16 year old cars mate, as super as we make them they are still that old. i had the same trouble with my last 2 boxes- its the gear synchro mesh, it does wear out, specially when the cars driven to the red line... rather than get them recon'd, i bought another 2nd hand box and went through the same process... now on to my 3rd second hand box- this one i have been assured is fine. recon is inevitable im afraid my friend :cry:
