So far so good. I have two good bearings intermediate plate bearings and a pile of frsh synchros and dog-teeth. That synchro hub tool is indispensible as is James' site.

Turns out my 914/6 gearbox had been assembled without shims, and with silicone as a gasket. Pretty sure I shouldn't trust the pinion depth!
Since I will be mixing and matching parts, I'd be happier setting the various shim stacks/preloads and such properly. the haynes manual says leave it to the dealer. Is that absolutely necessary? Is there a DIY way to set this thing up?

TIA, Dave
