  1. First Gear Fix

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I am back at doing some major work on my car, it developed a rattle coming from the bell housing. Looks like the pilot bushing is shot, while im in there im going to to replace the clutch/PP/TO bearing, pilot bushing. Since I had the trans out I wanted to go head and replace the synchro rings...
  2. 164 24v AFM internals

  5. Clutch judder fix - MacGyver edition

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    Yes, another one of my no-cost, post-apocalyptic-mode fixes - now utilizing every backyard mechanic's favorite component: baling wire. My '65 Sprint GT had the backing-up clutch judder in spades. When reversing up a hill - and I live in SF - the grab/release oscillation felt like it was going...
