Good day, I'm running into issue's with my Getrag 282 5spd shifting into gear properly.

The transmission was fully rebuilt during my dohc engine swap and since the rebuild it hasn't been driven on with the execption of a few test-runs after completing my swap. The transmission cables are also all new as well and a new sport shifter from Rodney Dickman. My clutch is new also from the fierostore.com. (http://www.fierostore.com/Product/Detail.aspx?s=54007&d=103&p=2)

When the engine's not running it will fall into gear and sit there fine. However when the engine is running and I depress the clutch fully it will grind going into gear's (mainly 1st and reverse), and when it's in gear it will sometimes pop out as well. It seems hit or miss because sometimes it will go into reverse and 1st easier than other times.

I bled my clutch system and this didn't remedy it, so I pulled off my inspection cover and took a peek at the clutch as best I could and it seems to be fine as well, at least from what I can see.

It drives fine and the clutch doesn't slip, shifting's the only issue. Any idea's, thoughts or opinions?

Either your shifting linkage is not adjusted properly, or there is still air in the
clutch system.

Also, your clutch pedal could be bend from use. The Fiero Store clutch pedal is
a better design. I have them on both of my 88GTs.

Make sure your clutch master and slave cylinder aren't leaking. Get Rodney's
master and slave for peace of mind. Replace them in pairs, or you'll need to
bleed the clutch again and you really don't wanna do that. Do it right, once.

Interesting to know about the clutch pedals from the Fierostore, I'm gonna look into that if a good bleeding doesn't remedy it. Both master and slave cylinder's were replaced 3 years ago before my swap, although the fluid coming out looked kinda cloudy.

If you don't mind, would it be possible to get a picture from you of your 5-Speed's cables/linkage coming off the transmission? Just something that would give me an idea how yours is adjusted, if not don't worry. Although it would be greatly appreciated. I have a short-throw shifter arm on my Getrag from Rodney too, but I din't mind throwing on the stocker if it'll solve my problem.

Not trying to hijack the thread but who rebuilt the Getrag for you? I have not found anyone that wants to touch one... I have one that has a weak 5th gear synchro that will grind unless you shift very slowly into 5th.

I had it rebuilt at a place locally here in Edmonton called Alberta Drive-Line, it was done by a gentleman called Tulio. Wasn't cheap though, set me back $1900.

I'm gonna do another power bleed on my car then invest in that pedal I think.
