Pulled apart a transmission that "only popped out of third sometimes" and found almost every bearing wasted. Started cleaning and found pitting on several gears.

In leaning towards not using the gears that look line the attachment...just keep stuff as emergency spares and rebuild a different transmission...

that gear is going to be weakened from all those defects, they're a perfect place for stress cracks to originate

kind of what i was figuring. At first i was mad...but i got the transmission, a lightweight flywheel that was almost brand new, an exedy oem clutch and extra shift linkage all for $50.

i am betting the gears in my 305k mile original transmission look better...and unfortunately that gear is not the only one, just one that took the best pic.

Just in case you do want to keep them around you can get it baked or cleaned at your local machine shop. They might even be able to tell you if it's worth it beforehand. Just an idea before you use them as paper weights only.

not a bad idea. I might just swing down there and ask.

Junk the shafts, might be able to save the pinion and ring gear....but junk everything else.

the case and forks might be saved......I have quite a few empty core cases because of this.

The case looks pretty good. the ISB, and the roller bearing in the case were shot. And by shot i mean shot all over the place. I did notice galling on the end of the input shaft where the bearing sit. I have not looked closely at the ring and pinion, though I recall one of the diff bearings showed a lot of wear on the balls.

oh well at least it makes a good practice assembly unit to get used to how to do it lol

so i tore the 305k mile trans down. everything looks pristine except for the rounded brass syncro rings. bearings even look great, but i am going to change them all anyway since im in there. Will pull the crappy trans with the mfactory lsd and put it in this one in a few weeks and be happy with the original transmission and then have two spares....hopefully the one that came with the lsd isnt messed up badly....

Good cores for old Beetle gearing swap. ;)
Maybe a bit backyard engineering but 1.47, 1.6 & 1.74 ratios at least available.

makes me want to get another one. my second car was a 68 ghia and my next was a 69 bug. both had custom paint, custom seats, custom interior, and mild engine mods. tins of fun and easy to work on.

I ment using the VW gear ratios in d-series transmission.
VW Beetle main and counter shafts have same spacing as d-series.
Just have to weld the VW "gear ring" to machined d-series gear core.
