Yes, we put in new 2 litres of Manual Transmission Fluid. I did not want to take risk of broken pieces from the old oil.

Thanks for the detailed pics Lalu. How do you feel the gear shifting mechanism after the assembly?

Do you mind sharing, which FNG in Bangalore this is? They seem to have a nice place with good equipment.

Shifting is smooth like what I was used to earlier. Nothing amiss.

Very interesting, thank you.

I did notice you are using liquid sealant on the gear box. Should that not have a proper gasket?

Thanks

From the pictures shown I can infer that anabond sealing silicone was used. It is a standard product that I have seen used in many sealing applications both automotive and in the oil and gas industry. I saw the same being used in my car's gearbox. The casing for the gearbox usually comes in two sections which mate together. These "half casings" or handis as we call in the hindi speaking areas are of fairly irregular shape and I think it might be hard to seal them with a gasket primarily due to the irregular shape. the seal is has to be maintained against gear oil which is at fairly low pressure, another reason perhaps for not needing gaskets. I have seen the gearboxes of a few cars in the opened condition but never seen one with a gasket. It is quite possible though that some cars may be using gaskets for the sealing. Have you seen one with gaskets?

In my experience, Anabond products are strictly average in quality and performance. For such a critical application as your gearbox, I would recommend using Loctite or 3 Bond or an OEM approved sealant. All these are quite easily available on automobile or industrial supplies shops. But, since the job is done, you shouldn't worry about it but do remember to check regularly for leaks.

There was no gasket nor a sealant when we opened the gear box. It was a perfect fit.

I have not yet seen a gasket here, but seen sealants. You are absolutely right, if you run your hand through the surface you can see that they are very well polished and clear, but the shape itself is too much of a fun to have a gasket I believe, but the surfaces mates each other pretty well.

These sealants are enough I believe, since the surfaces bond pretty much well, and the oil itself doesn't exert much pressure on the walls. Anyways will watch out for leaks.

This is a picture a standard gasket set for a Honda Civic. Different model/box then yours, but you can see the sort of gasket typically used.

I donít think itís a big thing one way or the other. Just wondering. In Europe/USA you would buy part sets for these sort of jobs. It would come with whatever was the recommended bits and pieces. Very convenient.

Very true, in US/Europe market sourcing components is a breeze. I wonder when in India things would spruce up like that. I would be vary of the quality standards even if it comes.

I am trying my luck with two online portals that have come up in India - boodmo and Sparesncare. I have ordered similar parts, waiting to see the quality and genuineness. This will go a long way in building my trust with these fellows. As of now, boodmo seems to take like forever to ship a part
