I know the transmissions are somewhat complicated, but why not refurbish 
the existing one? The cost of bearings can't be that bad. I'm not sure 
about synchros. I suppose labor could be the killer.  A mechanic friend 
installed a Quaife diff and new bearings iin my VW 5 speed for $250. I 
helped him a little with the labor on re-assembly and re-install in the 
car and I paid for the diff and bearings. He works at CDI here in 
rochester now (www.cdicars.com) and I could ask him about rebuilding 
these. I'm sure people feel more comfortable with a new tranny, but if 
the case, shafts, gears are in good shape....
