difiiculty getting into 5th gear

Recommended Posts

hello i have a E reg defender 90 td and am sometimes having dificulty selecting 5th gear but not every time and when i change down to 4th it can also grind a bit when going in ,but only in these gears.

i have a complete and running 200 tdi disco and are considering puting the engine in my defender to increse the mpg and power or selling the whole lot.as i have not much time at the moment.

i want to use the original gearbox as it seams easier than messing about with the transmision tunnel and handbrake.(i have read the thread to do so)

however i need to make sure the box is ok because it would be a right pain to put it together and have to swap the gearbox later.

i have been told the top housing and the plastic bush inside often wear and could be the cause?

would this be worth a chance first or shoud i just fit the box from the disco?
