Of friction and rotten smells

I recently sniffed a thoroughly unpleasant.. kinda "rotten" smell through the air conditioning system and thought my clutch pumps were leaking again. So I went over to see Fer for a check up. It so happens that clutch fluid was indeed leaking, but not from the pumps. A hole was found in the gearbox housing and many many hours of welding later, all was well and patched.

Since it was in the shop and gearbox was dismantled, I thought it wise to replace the almost-2-year-old clutch (which was soaked in fluid by the way) and repair my synchro whilst Fer was at it. Another dismantling of the gearbox for those reasons would've been costly.

Sadly, I've been sooo busy with work these past weeks that I've no photos (more lost memories) of the welding, clutch that went in and synchro repair :(

Just an update for the sake of updating. Cheers all!
