Transmission overhaul is done. Car got new clutch, flywheel, slave cylinder, transmission mounts, SMG-acculator, SMG-electric motor, new o-rings for solenoids (from Fast attack motorsport) and SMG-hydraulic pump internal seals and "unicorn piss" hydraulic fluid (from Burkhart engineering).
Before repairs it took almost 8s to SMG prime in the mornings and got a sqeeking sound when changed gears. Now it takes 1.5s to prime and squeeking sound is gone. Sound was coming from throwout bearing which was original and it was sticking. Old SMG-hydraulic pump internal seals were in good condition.
