Your not having much luck recently!

If you do get Mike at Sports and Classic to rebuild the box, i'd be interested in what it cost you. I'm in the middle of replacing the clutch master and slave cylinders and hydraulic hose in an effort to rule out clutch drag as the issue with second gear when cold. I'm not holding out much hope though.

Good luck with the other issue as well....

There are load of gearbox specialists out there (all over Europe) and I've had mine rebuilt a couple of times for quite a lot less than the specialists charge. It just about remembering the order they came out and the need for a decent press.

For the 3.6 absolutely true, the 3.4 on the other hand is an utter nightmare. Basically the 3.4 came with a symmetrical differential pinion bearing that was made in Brazil. There were quality control issues so Porsche then decided to source a higher quality spec bearing in Germany which was also redesigned with a groove in it. You can now only order the 3.6l bearing from Porsche so you are stuck. Basically you have to have a custom made shim manufactured to fit the 3.4l gearbox, which can't even be made prior as it is calculated to the clearances which are different in every case. Hence why Mike at SC gets so much of these issues pushed his way.

I've just had the pleasure of dropping the gearbox without a ramp/lifter. Utter nightmare lying on the ground on your back removing it. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Can't wait for the pleasure of fitting it back in again Sad

I have a noisy 1st gear on my box. Rather than rebuild it, I have sourced a 997 box from a 3.8S and I'll be fitting that next summer, once my house/garage rebuild is complete. I'll be swapping over the LSD and rebuilding it, but the box has only done 20,000 miles so I'm pretty confident it will be OK. I will have to put in a 997 shifter mechanism/cables and some 997 clutch parts, but it's all stuff I would have been putting in or replacing anyway.
