Just looking to see if anyone has a copy of the Toyota EA60 service manual? I wasn't able to find one in my searching this morning.

I think Lotus' agreement with Toyota on that information prevents them from providing them electronically. VSIC recommends buying them directly from a dealer, using part # T000T1517F. But damn it's pricey. A bit cheaper via DeRoure.

Or you can find it free by Googling. Hint: the Evora and OP's Exige have an Aisin BG6 transmission, and it was used on many different makes/models.

IMHO you don't really need the manual if you've ever rebuilt a transaxle before -- no special magic in this one.

Ah, that's helpful WoH. Aside from the actual gears used, I'm guessing the rest of is the same, regardless of the vehicle it refers to.

I didn't think it would be especially hard, I mostly wanted to know the synchro measurements becuase I am rebuilding a trans I never drove I don't know what synchros need replaced.

Are you sure that the BG6 is the right transmission? Someone said the same thing to me on FB I think when I was looking before, but I thought at the time it was not correct for some reason that I can't remember now.
