Gidday Bulldust, I knew where you were from even before I looked

My mind is made up. Taller 5th.

My ol' gal is stock but pulls like a trooper, just over 8 grand in third the other day.

So what else 'must' I replace besides taller 5th, all bearings, seals, SKF bearing on the shifter, circlips etc.....?
