what's really involved in a rebuild? changing the synchros and what else.
I would think that you may want to have the 2nd and 3rd gears lightened at least. then don't forget the clutch and flywheel. Oh and yes the rear engine seal while you are at it. and of course check the condition of the clutch slave and respective hoses.

Uh huh.....thats right....(righteously nodding head up/down). next time think twice before you offer this kind of pretense to an Alfa BB member. At least you could have offered to share the project with another member....LOL!
I draw the line at actually doing any work. That's why I stated that some sweat equity would be involved. I am strictly supervisory. BTW I will gladly supervise the removal and replacement of my trans if someone needs the practice.

Dont forget to open up the case and replace all seals with maybe some Mil Spec Type III flexible aviation sealant. Avoid the Permatex brands. This is your chance to minimize the AWFUL leaky alfa gearboxes.

Clean the surfaces well with acetone/mineral spirits.

I'm honestly having a nervous break down-seriously. How do you forget the past or rather get past it?? Gordy brought up some very painful memories, I'm not getting over-especially since the dead friend was just in my dreams. This is not for plays I'm seriously losing it over here!
Not my intent....Sorry....Hope you're handling things better now.

Thoughts on replacing tranny in about any year spider;
1. anything even close to 2,200 is way too much
2.probably, no definately will want to replace shift boots (cheap)
3. steam clean well before starting the job (unless you like really greasy hands, clothes, etc.)
4. drain gear oil first
5. invest in one of those "curved" open/ box end 13 mm wrenches
6. can be removed in the previously stated 3 hours . Provided you are not on some nasty weed infested field. ( level helps a whole lot as well)
7.good time to be critical of clutch parts ( I have done a few where I didnt have to replace them)
8.Have cold beer, good tunes, and premade sandwiches available
9. remember to have fun, its a hobby right?
