Great pics, thanks James - I'll post some wild ones later - more failures. I was given a gear set (still on shafts and intermediate plate) from a box that had recently been rebuilt. Tore it down today - your instructions are right on the mark. Some perfect (new) dog teeth and synchros, oddly second was worn. The box had a bearing go bang, lots of damage.

Any idea if those bearings are available through industrial channels?

Geoff - that was kind of what I was thinking about the gears, though I have no experience playing around with it. I suppose part of the equation is what I do with the webers and what that does to the torque curve. I do intend to install a six so it might be wise to build accordingly.
