    I've figured out what happened here, this is what I was going to say: Have a close look at the dog teeth on the 1st/2nd gear synchro hub. Make sure they are not worn or you will have jumping out of gear issues. They need to be sharp cornered, not rounded. I had to replace one on my D suffix box.

    Hi no nothing like that, all looks good, I'm tempted to say as new, the bearings all look new as well. I wonder if a previous owner, took it apart, realised the layshaft was knackered, changed a few things ( I haven't found a gasket in it yet!) and put new bearings in and sold it on to who I got it from.

    Not a layshaft, no, but I did ask about BP parts for gearboxes over on LRUK and several people who I have great respect for, people who know what they are talking about, said to use BP gearbox parts with no worries, so I did... several thousand miles on I've had no issues and the gearbox is working just fine. I used: 1st/2nd gear synchro hub, baulk rings, reverse pinion and shaft, shims and bearings for the transfer box intermediate gear, springs for detent balls and a gasket set. I could see no problems or evidence of shoddy manufacture in the parts I got. I did buy the rest of the bearings and seals from a local bearing supplier though, I didn't fancy trusting the bearings to a Chinese manufacturer. I'll see if I can find the thread and post the link on here. You can always find that Cyprus bloke on ebay if you don't like the idea of blue boxes though...

    Thanks for the thoughts on britpart and for the link. Yes I've seen the Cyprus ebayer.... We could get landyzone to sort a group holiday and save on postage!
