Yup last week before the dollar dived.

I ended up ringing my contact and had a long talk with him and went mechanical linkage.

their ceramic clutch set up is almost as light as hydraulic and he said they get a few problems with the internal hydraulic setup leaking.


btw Wintersun at Port Mac. has been good fun IM SO TIRED !!!!!

I just got an invoice for my customs duty and GST.  So, I should have my gearbox by the end of the week, if I'm lucky... :pepper::hammer:

I sent an email to their sales dept. instead of the guy I was initially dealing with.  They got straight back to me so hopefully we can sort everything out quickly.

I just had a chat to the mob that brought the box over from the states for me.  They have just found another box that was part of my shipment...
So I guess that solves a few problems :)  They are mailing it down to me.

I guess that's what happens when you go for the cheapest price :hammer:

Hi Guy's

I haven't been here for awile so i thought i;d give you an update.

I have now fitted the tranny and it went pretty smoothy, the only real pain was doing the belhousing alignment, not hard just fidly.

I purchased my kit through Hurst driveline, good to deal with.

It's made the vette so much nicer to drive on the highway with the 3.73 rear well worth the money.:thumb:
