and what vehicle is this on...not sure about answering if you need a new tranny but depending on where you are and what you are driving I may have a tranny!

So wait for the experienced guys to answer your question and in the meantime let us know what your driving and a city or at least a state, and you may get better responses if you spell check I think this is what your trying to say(not picking on you just trying to help!)

He's got an 87 samurai and lives in Miami FL.

If you've rebuilt it and it's still doing the same thing then it's most likely something like a bent control shaft or something that is going to require another complete removal and dissasembly just to find it. Once the problem is located, you will need a donor transmission for the replacement part since the problem wasn't one of the pieces available in the rebuild kits. I think you'd be better off just replacing it with a rebuilt unit. They can cost anywhere from a hundred bucks at a wrecking yard, to 800 bucks from a transmission rebuilder.

darn I have a tranny that came with my engine I bought them both for $200 of craigslist. But I am in Colorado Springs Colorado so I'm sure that after shipping he could get a tranny shop to rebuild it for the same price...that being said I would check craigslist and e-bay along with the local tranny shops and junkyards!

Silly question...

Is the clutch adjusted to where you have full release before the pedal hits the floor?
If so, then nevermind - as said above the problem could be something else inside that wasn't replaced in the rebuild. But if the pedal hits the floor it could just be a clutch adjustment.

I sometimes overlook the obvious things don't I? The worst part is I just recently had to readjust my clutch because it wasn't disengaging all the way and started to grind the gears when I shifted. Problem was from when I installed a new clutch cable, I didn't adjust it properly.

Would this cause mine to sound like it's grinding(checked the gearbox no shavings, checked the tranny no shavings) when I put it in 5th as soon as I let off the clutch it's like it's not engaging fully!

I drive an '87 samurai!

If it was the clutch, it would grind in all of the gears. If it is hard to get it into gear - Syncho's. If it grinds after gear has been acheived - gears...

Hi and thanks to all for the replays
I live in Miami Floria and i driving most of the time on road and let me tell you guys my history I put a exedy clutch new a few Months a go and i dont remember but probably the gear were like this since i get the car ,i get this car to make a full restoration because it was in not working condition and i re built the engine install power steering from one honda passport and i painted and put new tires and spacer and is a great looking little car but i felt that the gears where grinding a bit so i start to play with the clutch and was the same actually i felt that the exedy clutch has to much grip so i get the oem suzuki disck and clutch (more expensive )but nice and still have the same problem so i rebult the tranny whit the regular kit (bearings seals and syncros )) but i have stiil the same problem so i think that my best bet is to get another tranny but this cars and parts are very hard to found in miami so i will stare to look around ebay
if you have any other idea please let me know and i an sorry for replay to you guys so late but i was with out internet for 3 days

thanks to all
