well i thought i missed a gear when i was getting on it but nope, stripped the splines right off the countershaft. I recently went to a 628, cam etc. i wonder if that is more than the c.s. can handle. It is an 86 so it might just be age. Anyways it looks like i will really be tearing the engine apart this time. Has anyone done this repair? tips, or any advice? On the upside i will get a good look at how all the other work i have done is holding up. Honda has the shaft for around $90.00, if they even have them. The stupid tow cost more than that.
