2nd gear synchro bits and both thermostats

Post by alythian on Wed Feb 22, 2017 9:33 pm

Greetings all. My elderly Executive is needing 2nd gear synchro refurb kit and both water temperature thermostats replaced. has anyone any idea where I might source these items. The thermostats are most vital as my good lady likes to be WARM when travelling. Thanks in anticipation of your input.

The Thermostat shoudnt be a problem from any decent motor accessory shop, however your gear box is another matter.  There have been a few postings on here of possible companies who could sort out, but I know of one couple who have been looking for 2 years for a gearbox rebuild.

Are you sure its the syncro and not just the cable to the gearbox that needs adjusting

The problems I had with my last Fiat van's gearbox was the main reason I bought a windsor on a Ford Transit base.

This thread appears to be the most recent on the subject of gearbox repairs and the difficulty in obtaining parts for Boxers. I've just read on another forum that this company have just rebuilt a member of that forum's gearbox....
