I would say yes but I am no expert. Maybe take it to a shop and ask if it can be polished out. I would hate for you to put everything back together and something goes out because of that.
just under 80k milesHow many miles on the car/trans? I assume this isn't from abuse, right?
Yep, gets expensive fast!! That's why I drive like an old man these days and enjoy that it is on the road again. Don't even feel comfortable taking Blue to the dyno even to see what she can do.Spend the 2100.00 and get a built trans. I spent $2400 in just parts not even the build yet. Probably have just under $4k in my trans when done. Would be around $6k if Realtuned would make the straight cut 3&4 gears again!!! Wishful thanking!!!
The mirror tells me I am an old man these days! :| Whew, reading threads like this has me wondering what I'll find when I eventually have to pull the transmission out of mine. I'm at a little over 211K miles now. I replaced the 3rd gear fork and syncro at about 65K, and clutch and throwout fork at 130K. There likely will be other transmission issues sometime in the nearish future.That's why I drive like an old man these days
