Just because it's a "common trick" doesn't make it the right thing to do, nor does it mean it'll work as well as doing it right.

Worked for me, did this for a friend on his 914 tranny, selecting good used parts from two trannies to make one, and that tranny is still shifting fine after 15 years.

sometimes schooling and notes don't translate to a real world fix.

why would you do this???? Saving money is one reason, probably the primary reason in the case of my friends tranny, well worth the savings.
