Hi there
i have taken some photos of the fix but can't figure out how to post them here
but the principle is simple.
my problem was that on my 1982 924 turbo, i had no synchro on first gear but it was staying in gear perfectly
on inspecting it it was obvious that the dogs were stopping the synchro ring springing out far enough
i measured the synchro ring at 85.4mm then i removed the large cir clip and the synchro ring sprang out to 87.5mm so i simply ground away the lower part of the synchro ring that was interfering with the dogs on a bench grinder, then put it back together and it then measured 86mm
after some new seals and oil the gearbox is working perfectly
I'm happy to email the photos if this is of any help to anyone
cheers Pete

Pete assuming the pics are a sensible size around 800x640 pixels or so, this may mean reducing them in a picture editor.
Then when you write the mail scroll down & you'll find a bit marked "If you wish to attach one or more files" heading.
Click on choose files, find it on your computer & click it, then use the add the file button & you'll see the file name load. Rinse & repeat for each picture. Preview to check they are there, then submit.
