915 first gear woes

Transmission and Clutch

Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1984; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 73,000;

Hi Chris,I have always enjoyed following tech Q&A segments in Panorama throughout the years, but have never had an occasion to draw upon your expertise. Lucky me! As my 85 Carrera is currently going through restoration, I am certain I will be e-mailing you very soon with questions of my own. I am writing today for a friend of mine (and recent PCA member) who recently purchased (Aug 07) a very well kept, one owner, local, low mileage 84 targa. This 73k mile cars transmission has begun to pop out of first gear...every time the car moves forward. As I have read over the years that this is a common problem with the 915 unit, I was surprised to not see any information on the problem within the past article history section of the PCA website. Have I just overlooked the previous articles? Can you offer some direction as to the nature and causes of the problem, and most common solutions? Also, where can I find your previous articles on the subject for further reading? Thanks for your time!CharlieCarolinas Mountain Region
