Hi all
pulled my gearbox out to give a once over.I checked the ratios to see what i've got.Well all is good ,but fifth gear is 0.832 and it has normal synchro on fifth as well.Most of my checking has 280zx box with 0.863 fifth and fibre ring instead of brass synchro .Any suggestions what it is off?
Cheers

Only the early 240Z/Dato Sports 2000's and the 260Z box that had the 2.9 first gear had 0.864 fifth gear.

Hi all
been researching,it might be from a  nissan gazelle,it might not have the best ratios but at least it has a proper synchro on fifth.
Cheers
