Good for you! For me cleaning and some replacement of parts is as far has I dare go. To I fixed my window washer system.
After hearing the motor work, and cleaning the plastic tank. I blew air through the lines, and discovered the plastic line was pinched underneath the air filter box on the right front of the engine bay before it went into the hood.
I think your feeling of accomplishments is much more deserved.

Any luck with finding someone to rebuild your LT77 in the Seattle area yet? I’ve got one the needs to be rebuilt as well.

I couldn't find anyone in Virginia to even look at a manual transmission. That's why I rebuilt my own.

John have you tried vintage race shops that do full mechanical repair-work on vintage race cars?...they have the mechanical skills to do the work especially if they are in inside/repairing European tranny’s at the track......I used a vintage race shop back in Connecticut when I was there to rebuild the lt77 back in the late 80’s (automotive restorations)
Take a look at these folks in your area and its best to drive by and talk to them and feel them out.....

The TR8 transmission is on hold right now pending some warmer weather. I thought I would try replacing the bushing first
along with Slick 50 oil. Have not had a chance to find a local shop for rebuild.

I would also try and get a rebuild kit for the LT77 so whoever works on it will have what they need....second gear hard parts-shift fork, synchros....check out Ashcroft transmissions in the UK...not sure if us suppliers have these..
