Ok, my 4.11 5MT is trashed, I opened it up today and the amount of gear damage was to the point I threw in a used gear set so I could drive. Needless to say 2nd gear syncros are GONE in that gearset. Its got a whine to it and a pretty nasty vibration so its times limited.
What I have is a 05 Outback with a 5 speed in it, and I know its the style that uses the female inners on the axles. So I've covered that part of the problem by using automatic stubshafts and seals.
Second part, is other than splitting the case open, buying the 2 seals and snaprings for the old style speedo gear, is there any other way around getting my speedo to work? In reality I could care less about it, but I think its gonna set a CEL if I run without it..
I need ideas guys, springs comin fast and I want to be able to beat on the Outback and see if I can bend some more SJR lift parts. If I cant find a way around the speedo gear, I'm gonna have to drop 500 bucks or so on a wrecked Outback/Forester just for a tranny.
