Sammy gearbox noise. Rebuild or replace?
I put together an unusual vehicle. I used a Suzuki G10 engine with an 86 Sammy gearbox and put the drivetrain in a Mazda Miata.
The Sammy gearbox makes a bearing noise when in neutral and idling.
When driving the noise is loudest in 4th and 5th gear under moderate load.
From what I can tell the bearings are a common problem and It may be worth rebuilding the gearbox rather than replacing.
Should I rebuild it?
