Don't know yet. I don't have the any of the spacers so I'm not sure they if they sit inside the thin sheet metal spring pan or not. I won't fit any spacer at this point until I see the car's stance once completed and on the ground...stay tuned.

Transmission Refurb

I’m either getting too lazy or too busy to post updates of this resto…but I have been going at the engine and transmission all at once and things are finally (slowly) coming together on these mechanicals.
For the transmission:
-replaced the first gear synchro internals with good internals from a fifth gear synchro (taken from a spare tranny that I picked up last fall). I used the exact technique outlined in the thread “first gear fix”
-replaced badly worn first and second dog gears with a good 4th and 5th gear dog gear…(taken from spare tranny). One thing I learned on this exercise is how not to remove a dog ring. Namely, do not use the snap ring during removal…with a gear splitter (as shown below).

If you do (as I did the first time) the ring will act as a lever against the dog ring groove flange which will ultimately crack the flange as load is applied. Luckily I decided to test this out on the worn out ring first

After this fail…I decided to locate the splitter directly in the groove….which did the trick. But it sure gets a little iffy…..pressure is applied and no visible movement takes place…then Bang!...it breaks away and starts to move. The fit between the dog and the gear itself is amazingly precise.

cont'd ....I replaced worn out synchro rings with good synchro rings (from spare tranny)

-replaced all three synchro sleeves with NOS ones. Quite possibly some of the original ones might have been OK….but since I had new ones anyways…why not.

-replaced the front and rear shaft seals and shift fork o-rings

I measured all the gear bushing i.d.’s and found all to be within the upper limit of the spec. Initially I was contemplating replacing all of them with new bronze bushings but after reading some not so positive threads outlining problems experienced with changing these out….I decided to keep these as is for now…the tranny may be a little loose compared to a new one…but we’ll see…I hope it’ll be fine.

-I rewired the back-up light switch…fresh terminals, wire and terminal covers….

So it’s 99% complete….but I do need to finish the back-up light switch wiring…like crimping on end the terminals and terminal covers.

It’s fun looking back at the original condition of the transmission I started out with…

Engine Rebuild

Engine work has finally commenced....(actually started this months ago). To kick things off...I asked fellow Alfabber Superfab if he could drill the block for 5 main bearing oiling....and he graciously did.

I still need to install the plug screws....and it'll be ready to go.

One of the nuisance issues I had with the block were the oil pins that had previously been installed and that were in a few cases now flush to the top of the block. I was able to remove a few by tapping a 4mm thread into the pin and extracting with a bolt. However this method I would not recommend (even though it worked for me on 4 pins)...the pin is made of hardened steel and I broke 2 taps on the other 2 pins...so I stopped while i was ahead. I read in another AlfaBB thread (on this very topic) that a very effective tool can be easily made from a thin bar of steel (I fashioned one up from a barbeque skewer) as shown below. The one shown was used to extract 4 pins so it is a little bit distorted and damaged in this photo. The beauty of this tool is that it was able to reach deeper into the oiling hole where a few pins were pushed farther down the hole and additional ones were installed on top of these.

I also had the flywheel resurfaced...at Gordon Bush Performance.

machining work..cont'd...

The original crankshaft was quite badly scored on the con rod journals. It needed to be reground 0.010" under on all the mains and rod end journals.

Canada Chrome and Crankshaft completed the work they also feathered out the oiling holes a little bit (not sure if it does a whole lot). Installed new bearings all around and looking good.
