This not quite correct. while you can switch all of the IRS parts around (if you have everything), The 69s an ...

I'm still getting a little bit of slip when shifting but not nearly as bad as I had it. But I'm moving back to Cali in a few months so i'd rather not mess with the jetting at the moment.

Did you have reverse before you changed the nose cone? Did you replace the hockey stick as well? If yes to both, you may have gotten either the wrong year component, or on from a Type 3

My question is why you went to the larger gland nut? IMHO, you are better off going with 8 dowel pins and the OEM German gland nut. The problem with most aftermarket parts is the quality of the meta ...

Probably one of the worst manual transmissions out there to rebuild.

In most cases, its not just the synchros that go out, but t ...
