Trans rebuild parts source?

My ST165 has a bit of a crunchy 2nd gear. Everything else feels great. I'd like to rebuild it, but kind of hard to find a kit. Anyone else rebuild one of these? Do the MR2 or Camry boxes have the same internals?

Searched around and was able to find parts directly from the Toyota dealer network. Got everything to fix my 2nd gear grind. Price was not too bad. Now I just have to open the trans...that should be fun.

It's really simple. Rumors are it is quite similar to the mr2 e153. I had mine out of the car, disassembled and tore down to the fears in under an hour. I have the alltrac blowout diagrams somewhere.

I'm about to strip mine down and replace all the syncros just for the hell of it.

If you look up the toyota diagrams the MR2 syncros are the same as the st185/165. At least the 2nd gear syncro. The gears are different, due to different ratios. I found this out earlier today!
