Well, test drive was good. Seems to shift fine. Shifter has nice solid feel and action too. Not quite as good as the CAE shifter on my 993 turbo but much improved over what was in the car and am a happy camper!! I am now able to heal and toe shift down into 2nd without grinding. I like the old style Porsche synchro mesh transmission feel.

So much for the winter project. I need to find something else to do.

Jeez, not sure what you do for a living, but I do know there is a serious demand for people who can tear down and repair a 928 transmission! Very small handful of folks out there with this skill.

Good job. I like your substitute for a hydraulic press, that was clever. Well done.

What drove you to drop the entire rear suspension assembly?

That’s how the gearbox comes out. It gets suspended with straps from the anti- roll bar while the crossmembr comes out, then disconnected and lowered separately. WSM gives guidance.

That was one major winter project.

Remember you can further fine tune the throw of the shifter with inexpensive shims available from McMaster or its equivalent on the other side of the border. Spacing the bearing car up at the same rate as the shifter spacers will keep the rear shift link parallel and keep the link from dragging on the gear select input seal.

When you get the configuration just right, I recommend using some hand-tool strength threadlocker on the shifter through bolts and the bearing car attachment bolts.

Happy shifting!

thx, I find working on my cars relaxing, worse case scenario, I have to take it into someone more knowledgeable if I screw up or buy more parts - It's not brain surgery...

thx, I replaced all the synchros, complete 1st and 2nd gear set/counter shaft (as the 1 & 2nd gears are incorporated in the counter shaft and you're supposed to replace them as a set), and all the seals. I had bought an extra dog gear but it's paper weight for now as the other dog gears looked fine.

thx for the parts, if I had known how fast you guys send stuff out, I'd would have done the tear down first to figure out what I needed before ordering!

what Dr Bob said, actually pretty straight forward, now I'm thinking I should maybe replace the shocks...

Worked actually quite well, and a much smaller foot print than a press!
