Transmission and differential problem
Hi guys,i'm new here,so let me introduce myself.I'm Sergio from Greece and i have a 360 modena f1.Last week i took her for a ride and the car didn't feel the same.From stand,when i tried to go,it gave me the sence that something was braking the car,like i had the handbrake on.When reaching about 10mph and lift the gas pedal it made a sound like metals being hit together and the ride was very strange.It waas like the clutch didn't work well.So i took her to the service.The ''metal'' sound was from the engine mounts,so i replaced them all.But......She has a problem in the differential,and we took the whole transmition box out.The problem lies in some disc in the differential and Ferrari doesn't sell them individually.There is also a problem in the synchroniser of the first gear.So.....Ferrari wants about 16K Euros for a new gear box and if i deside to keep my gear box,i have to change all the synchronisers,all the discs of the differential and all the bearings of the gearbox.I found a whole gearbox from another 360 that has about 25K miles in it.And here comes the questions....What should i do?
1-I try the used gearbox,and if it is working well i keep it...But will it be trustworthy?
2-Are there any OEM parts cheaper than the original from Ferrari so i can fix my own gearbox?
3-Are there any other members that had the same problem?What may caused it?How you fixed it?
I can't stand to see her teared apart and i want my car to work well again,but i try to find the best solution..Please help!Cheers!
