I'm almost done building my S40 tranny. While inspecting the shift forks, I noticed the the 3-4 fork wear pretty hard.
From the picture, you think it's fine to run it like that? Or should I replace this fork?

Thanks.

New fork, 3-4 sleeve, and hub, about $220, I have a Y8 needing it sitting on the bench now I'm going through.

You might be able to get away with modifying the Y8 3-4 fork to accept a 88-95 slider, but some are worn too much to even do that.

96-00 = 7.2mm
88-95 = 6.5mm

the one I have, 5.9mm, TOAST!

$275-300 just in parts so far for a Y8 rebuild. Add in my labor and core....yikes!

I added the picture now, you can see.
transzex, your fork is really toast! lol
Mine, if I remember well, is 6.5-6.8 mm thick. I'll measure it again later.
Cant I just weld fill the gap and machine it to factory specs?

It won't break.

The slider and dog teeth will wear so the slider, synchro and gear will have to be replaced.

I measured now the fork. It's 6.8mm vs 7.2mm when was new.
Maybe it's not that hard of a wear? Is it ok to use it like that?

Thanks for Idea Bone!!!
Also could weld and grind in desperate times.

You'd be surprised how smooth dull teeth shift when sanded smooth and cones scuffed. :)

transzex,
Is it ok to use 92-95 slider from a old gear box and keep the current hub?
What is the best way/tool to grind the fork in order to make it fit?

TheToaster,
I couldn't really understand what did you mean in the last sentence. Can you explain a little bit more?

BTW, all synchros are replaced with synchrotech carbon ones.

If the hub is in good shape yes.

A die grinder.

I no longer use 92-95 sliders in 96-00 transmissions. Wear occurs more quickly when they are used.

With 96-00 sliders available now, I haven't resorted to doing it lately either. They were only DD trans as well. Anything performance gets new parts.

Easier and less headaches/worries down the road.
