Front arches are cut to allow the front end to be removed in situ.

Guys I cannot seem to get 3rd and 4th gears any ideas?

Slots into 1st and 2nd and reverse ok... the gearbox hasnt been a part only the transfers when i split the block and gearbox.

It does have an anti seal gear selector thingy on if that makes a difference..

Lol sorry missing a few words there.

Ive fitted an anti leak seal to the gear selector / gearbox end and have heard these can effect gear selection.

Car is stationary with clutch down slots into 1st and 2nd fine.

ok.  i'd think the additional seal would more likely cause issues selecting 2nd, 4th or reverse if it wasn't seated in far enough

 

if the engine is static it could simply be that the baulk ring 'ears' aren't lined up with the grooves in synchro hubs.  try spinning the engine over a couple of times and try again
