looking help to source a 4th/5th gear synchro

I'm about to take the gearbox out of the 308 (GTSi) as I really want to get it back on the road this summer. I mentioned in another thread that the car was crunching when going from 5th to 4th so after chatting with a mechanic friend I'm of the opinion that the synchro is on its way out between the 2. Eurospares don't have one and Superperformance haven't got back to me yet so I was wondering if you guys know were might supply one.
Any help at all would be very much appreciated guys, I really need to get this sorted now.

Your's hoping, Stu

Do you need the hubs or the rings too? I buy a lot of Dino stuff from Jorg at Dinoparts.de but he also has a big section on 308s

When I get the box apart I'll have a better picture of what's needed but I'm hoping its only 4th/5th syncro. I'll email Jorg to see if he has one

If anyone has a photo or part number of the special tool that's required please post it up as the mechanics were I work will make me one if I can show them a photo.

They are in Holland, actually. Piet Roelofs would be my first point of contact for something like this. My 330GTC needs new synchros for 2nd and 3rd gear, and Piet will remanufacture them in the near future. In the meantime we can just turn the synchros over and they'll last another couple of years.


Onno

QV came back to me yesterday and has the bits in stock. I started to take the box apart last night. Found a website to that shows how to make a tool out of a 7/16 socket for removing the outer cogs. Clutch Parts might be useful to someone.

I'll be taking my time and taking photo's of each step I think. So feel free guys to continue with any pointers.
