Anyone know who sells a rebuild kit for a w57 gearbox in NZ? There are plenty of them on ebay...is that the best place to buy them? Thanks.

have used one off ebay. everything in the kit seemed legit. most of the bearings where the same brand as the ones that come out of the box. haven't put the box back in the car though

I've used stuff from Marlin Crawler & a couple of other crowds in the USA before with no dramas. If I get a chance I'll try & get back into the shop to look back & find out the other companies we've brought stuff from before.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/W55-W56-W58-Toy ... 2c75a21087

was off that seller anyway. although most of them on there look like the same kit

Digging up an old thread, but can anyone tell me if this kit is fine to use for a w57? as there's no mention of it anywhere but i see the above guy was going to use it for his w57?

Thanks
