Losing 2nd on the 954
It appears the dogs on second gear are wearing out (43k miles), as anything over 5k rpms it drops out of gear into neutral. On my quest for replacement transmissions I'm coming up empty for 954's, but have found a few 929 transmissions. From what I've read, they "appear" to be interchangeable. Are they (including shift forks and drum, etc)? And if so, is the gearing all the same?
It would be less expensive to just replace the worn gear, but I feel like having a transmission with 11-20k miles may be better than a trans with 43k with a new second gear. Am I wrong for feeling that way? I'd still have to factor in the cost of taking it to a shop to have them press on/off the gears for me.
Will most likely send it out for undercutting while its out. Not sure on the cost of that just yet though.
