I don't know if this would be a pure synchro problem. If it was synchro only, I think it would grind terribly while you put it in gear. But as I understood, you can put it into gear, but it wont move. Clutch issue, maybe?ska69 wrote:yeah, I guess I'm also looking at a rebuild...my problem (before the car was put away for winter) was that the car wouldn't move at all after a stop (e.g I drive it out of the garage, leave it idleing for 15-20 minutes, and then it just won't move...putting into different gears, and turning on-off the ignition didn't help). the problem simply dissapeared the next day (after the car was pushed into the garage)... I was told by the previous owner, that the syncros are subject for replacement..
Anyways, hence my car is a complete mess, I'm looking for a complete overhaul of all parts
I just regard the FSM to be a more accurate source of information, than a website listing, so I rather chose the same model year and same chassis (AND same trans. code as per FSM), than choosing an older model year, older generation chassis, despite correct trans. code.But it's all just speculation, and this is how I've decided. I might end up with a kit half of which I won't be able to use...ska69 wrote:could be the clutch, as it's also almost finished...
what I was trying to say in regard of the rebuild kit -
it's DTS-BK133AWS rebuild kit for the 1.8 200sx with FS5W71C transmission, and the DTS-BK133BWS is for FS5W71H for the 240SX with FS5W71H transmission. why the DTS-BK133BWS when there is a DTS-BK133AWS for a 1.8 + FS5W71C available? maybe I didn't understand something? the DTS-BK133AWS won't work or there is some other explanation to this?
No, it says -C. I meant "same", as in same -C trans. for '89-'93 240SX and '89-'93 S13 200SX. I just ignored the trans. codes on the website, and I chose by make and model year.ska69 wrote:wait, your FSM says that you have FS5W71H not FS5W71C?
From what I've read so far, this should work. But I don't know if the S13 and S14 are the same, output/input shaft length wise. Maybe some else can tell?I'd look for a KA trans from the same chassis in any case.DALAZ_68 wrote:so my trans just went out...
and im just wondering
KA 89 - 98 tranny gear box + CA bell housing = win?
should be, think about it...blownhemi wrote:From what I've read so far, this should work. But I don't know if the S13 and S14 are the same, output/input shaft length wise. Maybe some else can tell?I'd look for a KA trans from the same chassis in any case.
lol...but my transmission is broke...and i need to fix it be4 april 11th...my next event...sjbsuperman1425 wrote:resurface flywheel, clutch, TO bearing, pilot bushing, rear main seal maybe. if you have the cash i'd try and just rebuild the tranny you are putting in.
BUT i go by this motto: "if its not broke, dont fix it".
So witch one did you go for, already have it? Is it a match?ska69 wrote:ok, I understand you now but I think it should be the DTS-BK133AWS kit, hence the s12 had a ca18det as well, if I'm not mistaken...I guess I'll go with that option
