So my Z/ZX 5 speed (early case) sounds like glass in a blender when the trans is turning with RPM. It's a constant chatter sound like glass in a blender when I'm driving or rev it in neutral. It's definitely the trans because I can feel it in the shifter. It's a constant sound in all gears, so it must be main shaft? Not sure if it's a bearing or a syncro that's flopping around. I didnt try revving it stopped in gear with the clutch in to seperate engine from main shaft. It drives and shifts fine with no grinds, it just sounds terrible. I was 20 miles from home and wasn't going to risk grenading it, so I had it towed. I haven't drained the fluid yet to see if anything comes out that shouldn't.
I was sent this, and they actually list 71B rebuild kits. Also 71A for Z/ZX which I've never heard of.
