I'd be interested in finding out how the rebuilt box performs.  About 
the only adjustments I can see are to have the linkage adjusted so 
that the 2 mating flanges (1st/rev and 2nd/3rd) line up when in 
neutral.  (Look at it with the cover off from above and make sure 
everything looks symmetrical).  This keeps you from getting hung 
up between gears (although mine still does sometimes).  Also, the 
shift lever should be horizontal to the floor when in neutral.  This 
can be accomplished by adusting the shift arms at the box.  Good
