yellow metal in alfa gear boxes

BTW, Alfa gear boxes *do* contain yellow metal. Not only the forks, but also the bushings. These are copper. See Paul Spruell's web site for an example.

Bearing 3rd/2nd/1st Copper Bushing 1959-1991

Cheers

I even used genuine Alfa Romeo syncros ( $265 each) with a Yellow dot on them and had the same failures.
Im waiting to see how the new ones work= someone else tries them.
Amazing how a certain specialist had never had any problems,,and now has a solution.
Why would you have a solution if you stated you never had a problem to start with.

Richard,,are you using the syncros in race cars with high performance engines ?
Sounds like a good solution = larry at APE

I`ve never used aftermarket syncros. And have had no problem.

Well Richard

You do have a great reputation and always tell it how it is,,which is great.
Your advice is to purchase the genuine syncro rings from Larry at APE
As I said before,,I used genuine syncros rings and had problems
The genuine syncro rings had a yellow dot on them.
Do the genuine syncros you use from APE have a yellow dot on them ?
I will still do more research,but will proably purchase the syncros directly from you.
Anyone used the supposedly new generation syncros from a very reputable Alfa Parts Supplier in race applications yet ?

Syncronisers

If you go back to the beginning of this thread, I suggested using the same parts.
And pointed out that perhaps the level of preparation and assembly might, as well, be part of the failures.

However 95% of issues are probably attributable to one problem.
DRIVERS! These transmissions / transaxles cannot be speed shifted.
If the dog teeth are smashed with barbs at the top that`s driver not parts.

my experience confirms that.i've had perhaps twenty alfas but never bought one new.some have come with hard shifting and some have not.the ones that had decent shifting never got worse.and i've done a few hundred thousand miles.i had one that stoped going into gear.i'm going to remove that one soon and i suspect the selector fork.obviously the part of the fork which engages the slider is defective.

Answer is yes,but still had the problems.

Classic Alfa with the Goetze engraved syncros are the ones to use.
