QR Code Link to This Post
History: About two years ago I rented a car... Loaded up a 3cyl engine and 5 speed tranny and drove to Marysville, Washington to buy a 2000 Geo Metro from Jeff Heart of JEFF'S GEO METRO fame... Jeff is a factory trained mechanic and mechanical instructor...
Recommend you check out his web site if you are a Metro buff... Jeff has been remanufacturing 3 Cyl Metro engines and 5 speed transmissions for 20 years... Even makes engines for light aircraft!
After spending a day looking around Jeff's Geo Metro shop where he turns out one completely REMANUFACTURED Metro every 10 days... I decided I wanted his special engine with Hill-Climber Head and Custom Clutch & Flywheel so I could pull my fishing boat and trailer...

NOTE: This ad is for a heavy duty Geo Metro 5 Speed Transmission with the $300 Custom Synchronizers and Bearings and Pins... Etc... With Zero (0) Miles on it!
Copied from JEFF'S GEO METRO Web Page:
""HD Bearing Pin and Synchro Kit add this option when you order the transmission to have this installed add $300..."
"Only Available installed... picture does not show complete kit as I wish to keep this amazing kit from being copied with out my permission or paying for it as I have a lot of money in this design. I hope one day to re coupe it."
"It's taken some time and a lot of effort but I now have my own custom synchro's. Being that the stock Suzuki part is so inferior I just wanted a part that if driven decently could go a real 125k miles. After a few destruction tests now we can see that these new castings synchro's are obliviously a superior component. How long they will last we don't know but they will last longer then stock."
"I have also upgraded several of the bearings in the transmission with the next grade up bearing. All the roll pins to control the shift fork failures are now being drilled out and over sized."
"I did not need to do this I know I already build the best trans-axles money can buy. But after so many years and so many drive train restorations it just seem to be the next step in the development of the one car for a life time project."
"They don't last forever but we can surely extend that mileage out with upgrades and good common sense driving. FYI you can still take out a synchro with a miss shift or banging on them or out of adjustment clutch but for normal commute no load cruising I expect twice the normal distance to rebuild. Just remember I have never damaged a synchro even towing in a Geo so just be easy on the unit... Jeff Hart... JEFF'S GEO METROS.""
