dont take it apart.note: the main shaft rides on uncaged bearings,lose 1 and you are in trouble.A transmission guy can see enough by taking off the cover.second gear synchros wear quickly and 3rd gear hold back wears and the transmission might jump out of third when down shifting into 3rd,especially coasting down hill.

also with this transmission,dont get into the habit of leaving your hand on the shifter when cruising around town. This applys to most standards,,,
