I have the gearbox away being rebuilt with new synchros etc.
My mechanic has said she needs new 1st and 2nd gears and outer hub.
Vauxhall themselves don't do them and I cant seem to find anyone that does
any ideas ?

Do you need new parts or second hand?

A second hand box is at least 500 quid and you dont know what your buying. it could go anytime. Also my box has a quaife lsd and i spent nearly £500 quid on two new synchros. I want to fix it right first time (y)

Gardiner Transmissions in Ballymena any use?
Transmission Services in Ballymoney may be able to help, but they are more industrial/commercial.
Getrag box so bound to be an agent in UK somewhere.

Try Paul Smith in Straid, although if he had some used parts not sure if he'd sell if he isnt doing the job, or he may have sources for new parts.

As for new...if Vauxhall arent making them...things could be difficult.

Have you tried anywhere on mainland Europe ? ie Opel. It could be worth a shout.

But if a used gear is in good order and the synchro teeth are good....obsessing about a new part is pointless.

Thanks for the ideas lads.
If good second hand is all i can get then its fine. Id just rather fit new if possible.
Im trying GEMA motorsport in germany as thats where i got the synchros. Ill try some of the other places you have mentioned too. (y)

Cheers to Keith Robinson for getting me the contact details of a fella Connor that was selling an F28 box.
Headed up to Newtownards on Saturday and lifted it. Hopefully ill get what I need out of it and have some spares to sell on (y)
