I've began a trans rebuild using doctorbill's writeup, which is great btw, and I now have a problem. For starters my original problem was that the car would not stay in 4th or 5th gear. So I purchased the rebuild kit and a new clutch kit and went to town. Upon opening the trans I discovered that I need 4th and 5th actual gears. The ones that the syncros are touching. The part with the little teeth that look just like the tips of the syncro teeth. Now where am I supposed to find these. I can provide pictures monday if needed.

Might try here http://www.blumenthalmfg.com/ I haven't had any dealings with them but read about them on another forum.

contact the people you bought the rebuild kit from, often they can get the gears you want also

I purchased the kit from the same people that Doctorbill bought his from on eBay. I've sent a message asking if they have the parts, but they haven't responded yet.

I need some help locating a transmission. I've been unable to find one. I've been through 3 salvage yards in my area for a week and a half and just drove 120 miles to pick up what i thought was what i needed. it was an automatic.

I did that first. The only one listed apparantly the guy doesn't really have cuz I agreed to buy it and the whole deal fell through.
