5 speed rebuild questions

hey guys i have had my 5 speed swap done for a couple of months now in my 92 hatch when i first put the tranny in 4th gear was grinding i could live with double clutching 4th but now second is grinding when i rev 1st over 3k so I'm looking for a rebuild kit for my tranny and was wondering if anyone knew of a decent kit for the rebuild. autozone can get me a kit for 120 bucks but i want 2 look around before i commit to them. ive tried looking on the net and the forum and i haven't been able to find anything and i was wondering if anyone knew of anything better than the autozone kit. Thanks

its not worth the time and labor bro.. if you are not adding racing gears to your tranny you may as well toss it and pick up another tranny for 75 to 100 bucks from your local junkyard.

somethings are just not worth the time to fix

Check to see what comes in the kit.. Better yet swap in a new trans, take your old one apart and see what needs to be replaced. My SR tranny needed an ext. case bearing.. ($17) No more grinds, shudder, etc. Keep in mind the
S13 and S14 SR/KA trannies are NOT identical. However.. Internally the
FS5W71C transmission is identical.

1) bell housings are different between SR/KA
2) S14 KA/SR have much improved internal baffling. If racing/drifting, S14 trans is a better way to go.

What gear fluid are you using? Over time GL5 fluid will eat up the synchros, I find a synthetic GL4 fluid such as redline mt90 really helps mine shift smoothly.

-----What do you mean??? S13 S14 tranny are identical. They fit right on without any issues.

A tranny swap the first time around with the proper tools does not take long if you have a buddy with you. My first clutch job took 8 hrs by myself..Its down to about 6 hours now. Just set aside a Saturday or Sunday, and start early.
