Great news! Must be good to get rid of o many annoying issues now then!
Was the gear shift mechanism on the box, or did you reuse youre old? I`m wondering why the shifter feels tighter, usually only due to bushings.

Reused the old bracket and shifter so it's all down to the gearbox itself.

Could also be the clutch releasing better.
Even though the clutch now grips lower on the pedal adjusting the wire more correctly.

Could also be that the clutch construction is a balance between the pedal pressure and the internal spring pressure in the clutch. When they construct the clutch they need gripping power and by using low quality clutch plate material they would need stronger springs, and thus more pedal power to release.
That is when the clutch wire and brackets begin to bend and stretch over time i guess..
With a better quality clutch the systems total balance and thus its function gets to be way better.
-in theory :)

Hi Yakuza.

Do you have a definite list about R72 type (year 2005) gearbox? I mean which parts should be replaced with new/upgraded parts in order to improve reliablity of this type?

I bought and got fitted another used R72 type gearbox last summer so I have the old one ready for rebuild.

My old R72 type gearbox has good gears but sync rings and bearings may need to replaced with new ones hence I'm asking.
Thank you for any advice.

No I do not have such info other than the bearing kits on ebay has closed bearings, my 2013 gearbox has closed bearings as i have seen with my endoscope, and my 2005 box had open bearings. this upgrade came 2009/10 i have read somewhere. (in here i think?)
The refurbished gearboxes sold have new gearwheels, bearings and sync rings one seller told me.

I too have been thinking about rebuilding and upgrading my used and crashed gearbox. But it would need most gearwheels and of course everything else in there that is damaged. I would have to check shafts and housing thoroughly so I might just do a core swap when i buy a new or refurbished gearbox sometime in 2026 when this new one breaks down...

New gearbox with new seal is leaking.
Or more correctly the drive shaft is leaking ref. this post: www.bigjimny.com/forum/7-jimny-technical...ain-grrrr.html#71942

the shaft is leaking inside the spline yoke. Seen some seal it with silicone.
I'll try to clean it with brake cleaner spray and seal it with Tec7.

So will start to find a drive shaft from a newer car if possible.
Not many of those here in Norway, I know of the car i got the gearbox from only.

Ok so it could have been done with a regular car or a tractor but of course this is much more fun with a Jimny!

Put it to work, not far from being a little tractor anyway!

That dog would probably pull that harrow too :D

He should be capable to do that, but he is probably the most useless lump of protein in Western Norway. :)

Bought some sort of Teflon tape off ebay and now my seat belts return quite good. The hanger was pretty dirty again so washing with brake cleaner did help too.

Pulled my transfer box this weekend to change the gears. will post pictures later.
Found my synchronizer ring on the 4x4 front output had broken.
I must have done something stupid while trying to get the case back together that broke the ring, or it was broken before.
It was very troublesome to get the box together as well and i did not get it to shift properly so trying to order a new ring today.
So now I await my local Suzuki dealer and hoping it can be sourced within reasonable time.
